The B303 Semi-Automatic Bottle Burst Gauge has been developed to verify production containers meet the minimum pressure requirements.

The systems monitors expansion volumes and yield points to provide important information regarding the stability of the bottle.

Quick-change tooling provides the capability to cover a wide range of industry neck finishes, future production proofing the machine as customer requirements and portfolios develop. With an expansion volume of up to 2400ml, the system covers small vials to large water keg containers.


The proven contact measurement technology ensures accurate, reliable and traceable measurement 24/7.


The system has the option of being mains water supplied or recirculating from a local water tank, reducing running costs and therefore cost of ownership.


Reporting options such as standard CSV or Statistical Process Control (SPC).


Traceable to UKAS standards.
