Technology

  • Container Closure Integrity Testing is a non-destructive measurement technology based on Vacuum Decay Method.
    Measurement system comprises applying a pressure differential into an airtight testing group enclosing the container.
    The test objective is to detect container leakages by measuring the reached vacuum level as well as the vacuum change over test time.
