Now with over 15 installations in the UK. The Aerofid Aerosol Leak Detecor is verified by Bourgoynes to be compliant to the ADR 2007 directive and the BAMA standard!
This machine is able to detect all hydrocarbons propellants without change parts. It has become the natural choice for the contract packer who requires flexibility.
Summary of Compliance from the Bourgoynes Verification Report:
5.1 The machine as supplied by Raupack designated Aerocan 100 (the machine) is capable of fulfilling the requirements of ADR 2007 of a leak tester for filled aerosols as part of the approved alternative to the Water Bath method.
5.2 The machine has sufficient controls in place so as to present minimal risk of explosion.
5.3 The machine can be considered to avoid flammable atmospheres in normal operation by design thereby presenting no additional zoning requirement to its environs, and having an internal zone classified as non-hazardous.
5.4 The machine can be considered as complying with the BAMA standard

The Bautz Aerosol Leak Detector, capable of more than 200 cans per minute, has been verified to comply to the requirements of ADR 2007 for use as part of the water bath alternative by Bourgoynes on Friday 12 September, 2008. Three further machines are due to be installed in the UK in the second quarter of 2009

The Verification Report describes how the Aerocan Leak Detector complies to the British Aerosol Manufacturers (BAMA) standard, including its safety and zoning requirements. It also details how the leak detector complies to the requirements of ADR 2007 for use as part of the water bath alternative.

From 29 April 2010, for the first time, compliance with all aspects of the Aerosol Dispensers Directive (ADD) and the application of the reversed epsilon compliance mark is mandatory under UK law.
As preparation we are building a stock Aerocan Leak Detector. This small 800 x 800 mm machine is capable of testing cans at up to 100 cans per minute, either after the water bath, or as part of the water bath alternative. It uses a single sensor head and can be calibrated in less than 10 minutes.
The machine, which is available for rental, has been verified by Paul Dewhirst of Bourgoynes to comply with the water bath alternative requirements of ADR 2007 and the BAMA standard.
