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.
