How HDPE bottles should be tested against vacuum leaks with a vacuum leak tester?

If you want to conduct an HDPE bottle vacuum test then you can easily follow the steps mentioned below.

  • Turn ON the machine by plugging the mains socket of the machine into a 3-pin 15 amp socket and set the test duration timings.
  • After setting the digital timer, remove the desiccator cover and place the sample bottle inside the test cavity in an inverted position.
  • After placement of the sample bottle, put the cover back on the desiccator. Make sure it will be properly placed on the gasket.
  • After proper placement of the bottle sample, turn the inlet knob to a close position.
  • Once all the above steps will be followed, you can easily commence the test.

In this way, you can easily test the HDPE bottles against vacuum leaks.
