Tablets & Capsules October 2019 31 Blister leak detector VeriPac UBV leak detector places blister packages under a vacuum and uses volu- metric imaging to detect leaks as small as 10 microns. Nondestructive test identi- fies a leak location in seconds. Unit requires no change parts, special tooling, parameter inputs, or sample preparations. In operation, simply input the number of blister cavities, place a blister package on the inspection plate, and press "Start." Detector displays a pass/fail result and an image of the tested package. Unit's small footprint conserves floor space and can be installed next to a packaging line for rapid feedback. Company also offers Pentapack packaging equipment for thermo- and cold-form blister packages.
