Technology

  • Container Closure Integrity Testing is a non-destructive measurement technology based on Pressure 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 pressure level as well as the pressure change over test time.
    In case of large buffer volume a Thoroidal Pneumatic Distributor provides the stabilization of each container pressurization phase.

Quality Assurance

  • Equipment test method refers to:
    • Approved industry standard “ASTM F2338-09”: “Standard Test Method for Non-Destructive Detection of Leaks in Packages”
    • No unhooking: star wheels safety clutch
    • Full batch control testing: fast, reliable and repeatable
