Speaking at the IPPE trade show in Atlanta, Georgia, INFICON said it was showcasing the Contura® S400 following its launch in the US at the end of 2018, but said the company was aiming to make it available for the Asian market.
INFICON’s sales and business development manager for its US division Bill Burnard told GlobalMeatNews that the equipment was designed to help meat and poultry manufacturers detect leaks in packaging, as well as improve food safety and extend shelf-life.
He added that the Contura® S400 took a non-destructive approach to testing and served as a cost-effective, reliable alternative to more traditional leak detection methodologies.
INFICON is headquartered in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland and engages in the development, manufacturing and supply of instruments, sensor technology and process control software for the vacuum-coating industry.
