Technology

  • Container Closure Integrity Testing is a non-destructive measurement technology based on Vacuum Decay Method performed while the package itself is held within an hermetically sealed test chamber.
  • Vacuum Decay test measures the loss of vacuum inside the testing chamber as a result of headspace gas leakage from the package.
  • The monitoring of the vacuum level allows to identify microleaks and rejecting the faulty container.
  • The leak testing machine measurement system is designed to identify the presence of leaks on containers due to:
    • (micro) holes.
    • Inappropriate sealing.
    • Cracks.

Quality Assurance

  • Equipment test method refers to:
    • Approved industry standard “ASTM F2338-09”: “Standard Test Method for Non-Destructive Detection of Leaks in Packages”
