PK-A

Off-Line Rotative Leak Testing Machine


• The Machine is designed for Non-Destructive Integrity Testing of Containers with pharmaceutical products.
• The Machine is suitable for 100% off-line testing at high production speed.
• The Measurement System comprises applying a pressure differential into an airtight Testing Group enclosing the Container (Patent No. 1225063 of 13-9-1988). The test objective is to detect Container leakages by measuring the reached pressure level as well as the pressure change over test time.
• The Measurement System follows the approved industry standard "ASTM F2338-09":
> “Standard Test Method for Non-Destructive Detection of Leaks in Packages”
> The Test method is a Recognised Consensus Standard by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), effective March 31, 2006 (Reference: Federal Register Notice FR Notice (list #014) [Docket No. 2004N-0226]
