PTI’s VeriCon leak testers now have bigger touchscreens, greater test sensitivity, and remote data-transfer capabilities.

PTI Packaging Technologies & Inspection has enhanced its entire VeriCon line of leak testers with several new features. The three most important are these:


 •  Larger color touchscreen interface for all models.

 •  Increased test sensitivity for low leakage rates; capable of detecting holes down to 0.008 in. (200 microns), depending on container shape, size, and line speed.

 •  Enhanced data-collection and data-transfer capability for remote monitoring. Real-time inspection data includes reject statistics and trends.


VeriCon leak testers are available in trimmer-mount or in-line conveyor-mount versions and in continuous-motion configurations. They offer multiple test stations and pressure or vacuum capability. Container sizes can be up to 5 gal.

PTI moved in June from Tuckahoe, N.Y., to larger facilicities in Hawthorne, N.Y. Phone numbers, website and email contacts remain the same.


  • Understanding the ‘Science’ of Color

    And as with all sciences, there are fundamentals that must be considered to do color right. Here’s a helpful start.

  • Barrier Bottle Technologies Square Off

    With single-serve containers raising shelf-life demands, packagers are seeking the barrier with the best cost-performance for PET bottles. Multilayer seems to have the upper hand, but monolayer, coating, and oxygen-scavenger technologies have all won niches.

  • Hot-Fill Packaging: OPP and 'Panel-Less' PET Bottles Grab the Spotlight

    Improved clarity and cost competitiveness, added to its inherent heat resistance, are reviving OPP’s prospects in hot-fill barrier containers. But hot-fill PET containers are raising the bar with higher productivity and ‘panel-less’ bottle designs.
