A new container and pouch tester with high-precision pressure and temperature-compensated volume-expansion test capabilities was launched last month at NPE in Chicago by AGR TopWave, LLC, Butler, Pa. The PPT3000 unit can perform custom and industry-standard tests, using Windows CE software. The patent-pending temperature-compensated volume-expansion test function is said to enable container makers to eliminate discrepancies in test results due to varying water test temperatures. Thus tests are unaffected by location, time of year, and testing environment. Other major advances, the company says, are the material-utilization and shelf-life prediction functions for PET containers.
