Over the past 2 decades, package integrity testing has become more reliable. When it comes to package analysis, high reliability is considered the key factor in statistical quality control and thus cannot be overlooked.
The ability to detect leaks in packaging is critical to ensuring the quality and consistency of food and pharmaceuticals. In addition to obvious defects in the packaging, invisible leaks must be identified.
The package leak equipment offers many business advantages, including time and money savings. This is because the package was not destroyed during testing. There are many benefits to companies using these leak detection systems to test food packaging. Here are some of the benefits of non-destructive packaging leak testing.
Packaging Validation and Profitability
Packaging validation plays an important role in bringing high-quality pharmaceutical and food products to market. In addition to the selection of suitable packaging materials, qualified design, and equipment, sealing process validation and test verification are very important.
A traditional method in which the operator pushes the package underwater to detect and detect bubbles emerging from a leak. This is a destructive test in which the immersed packaging cannot be returned to the production line after testing.
It may also be an inaccurate test due to the human factor and time-consuming. Packaging is reliably validated by non-destructive testing for packaging leaks using the vacuum degradation test method.
Non-destructive packaging testing enables automation
Since traditional destructive testing for package leaks requires human observation of bubbles escaping from the water bath tester, manual labor greatly reduces accuracy and efficiency.
Data is easier to interpret
Many destructive testing methods have proven inconsistent, unreliable, and often difficult for operators to perform under consistent conditions. Data is difficult to interpret and store due to loss of tested products or damage to the packaging.
