Packaging Leak Check Bench

TRACE 900 is a state-of-the-art Helium (He) based process, designed to meet the high productivity testing requirements of the pharmaceutical industry. It can detect with accuracy a leak rate up to 5x10-6


  • Manage up to 10 pre-set test cycles
  • Separate settings per cycle
  • Customization of the test chambers to fit different packaging sizes
  • Easy to maintain 
  • External sniffing probe to precisely locate the position of the leak
  • Automated monitoring to increase reliability of the system
  • Log file recorder on SD card memory



  • Blister
  • Vial
  • Bag
  • Bottle
  • Primary and secondary packaging


How it works

TRACE 900 works with the « bombing » process.

This technique allows a non-destructive test for any type of packaging (blisters, vials, bags, bottles…). The leak-free product can then be reintroduced in the production line.

All cycle parameters (injection pressure, exposure time, vacuum pressure etc..) are adjustable in order to optimize testing procedure according to the specific product requirements.
Test cycles are fully automated and improving user-friendliness.
A communication interface transfers data from the computer for quality assurance logging and follow-up. Data is stored as Excel compatible file extension.
Chamber size is defined by customers and custom made to fit the product to be tested.
