Saline tester

This machine tests condoms for pinholes according to ISO 4074. The inside of the condoms having been filled with conductive salt water, the condoms are dipped into a saltwater basin. The voltage between the electrodes in the two saline solutions is then measured. The intact latex film of the condom is an insulator. If the latex film has a hole, an electricity flow will be measured, and the hole will thus be detected. The machine can test 10 condoms simultaneously and its computer can be connected to a network server.

The machine is designed for testing condoms for freedom from holes as per ISO 4074.
