Steinfurth IPPS-Interactively Programmable Pressure Sequencer

Package testing often requires defined pressure sequences. The IPPS can be programmed with up to 99 different pressure sequences. The programming can be done by the user; special knowledge isn’t necessary.
Once programmed, the pressure sequences can be selected and activated. The duration of a sequence can vary from seconds to months. Repetitions are also possible. Additionally, the IPPS offers the possibility of pressure monitoring: If the actual pressure is out of specification limits, a warning is displayed.


  • The container to be tested is connected to one of the pressure output connectors.
  • Pressure follows the programmed sequence.
  • The IPPS in connection with the Steinfurth Closure Tester are the ideal, save environment for package testing.
