Leak detection solution minimised food waste

19 June 2017

Ishida Europe has launched a leak detector to help food manufacturers minimise spoilage in pre-packed retail products. 

Designed for use with a variety of foods – including fresh, cooked and cured meat, poultry, seafood, fruit, vegetables, cheese and ready meals – the AirScan uses laser technology to identify leaks of CO2 from holes as small as 0.25mm in sealed modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) packs at speeds of up to 180 packs per minute. It has been designed to be easily integrated into existing production lines.  

By maintaining the optimum gas fill for each pack, the leak detector provides consistent product quality, and allows any production problems to be quickly identified. It also reduces the amount of packaging that has to be scrapped, while the non-destructive testing process ensures that product can be re-packed.
