How to Test Seal Integrity of:

Food Bars
This article will talk about how to test the seal integrity of food bars. You will understand what you will need to do in order to ensure good seal quality. This article covers the seal integrity testing of Breakfast bars, Chocolate candy bars, Crisped rice bars, Energy bars, Granola bars, Health bars, Protein bars, Fruit and Nut Bars, Meal Replacement Bars or any other food bar sealed with a flow wrapper.
Vacuum Sealed Packages
If you are vacuum sealing your packages, you are faced with a challenge when it comes to seal testing. How do you know that your process is consistently creating a good seal? How can you be sure that the vacuum inside you package will hold for the required amount of time?
Sachets Filled with Powder or Liquid
In this article, we will talk about how a vacuum chamber can be utilized as a tool to perform leak quality testing on Sachets filled with either powder or liquid. You can use an acrylic vacuum chamber or bubble leak test system to test for leaks in sachets filled with powder or liquid.
Spray Bottle Pump Leak Testing
In this article we will talk about several techniques used to quality leak test the pump of a spray bottle.
Quality Control of Seals and Seams of Canned Food or Food Containers
Food cans which are hermetically sealed or seamed are the most consumed type of food in the United States. Fully 60% of all food consumed in a given day in the US is either canned food or food from containers. Canned food seal failure can expose the consumer to an unnecessary amount of risk.

Internal Pressurization ASTM F2096 Leak Testing Systems
Internal Pressurization (ASTM F2096) Leak Testing Systems are instruments that are used during the Quality Control process to discover leaks in sealed packages. As opposed to the vacuum bubble leak test, where the specimen is subjected to a vacuum, the internal pressurization integrity test creates a pressure difference and drives the air through a leak by internally pressurizing the specimen. Our Internal Pressurization Leak Testing Systems are designed and built to conform to the ASTM F2096 Protocol Standard.
Roots Blower Vacuum Pumps
Roots Blower Vacuum Pumps are used when a large amount of Volumetric Airflow is Required. Root Vacuum Pumps cannot operate independently and must be used in conjunction with another roughing pump such as Rotary Vane Pump or Piston Pump. The advantages of a Roots Vacuum Pump is that the Pumping Speed can be increased by a factor of 5 up to a factor of 10; meaning that a 20 CFM Rotary Vane Vacuum Pump can now be boosted to pump 120 CFM!
Our Work: Chamber for Vacuum Extrusion System
This is a custom acrylic vacuum chamber build for a high volume manufacturer of parts which are fabricated using vacuum extrusion techniques. The challenge was to build a vacuum chamber system which mated on two perpendicular surfaces; on the bottom and on the rear of the chamber. This was accomplished by incorporating a double gasket mechanism on the bottom and incorporating a clamping mechanism on the rear.
