Bubble Emission System used in Production Quality Testing of Blister Packs

Blister Packs are a type of Preformed Plastic packaging mainly used in the pharmaceutical industry. For packaging pills or medication. We have also seen blister packs used in the medical device industry (for packing surgical tools or bio-implants) and electronics industry (packaging of microchips).

If you require to quality leak test your blister pack heat seals for proper seal, Bubble Leak Emission Tester is the simplest way to accomplish that. You are looking at our standard Bubble Emission Test System. This one is 12 inch Wide, 12 inch Deep, by 12 inch High. The vacuum pump is a venturi vacuum pump that uses compressed air to generate vacuum and evacuate the clear acrylic vacuum tank. The venturi pump can be actuated simply by toggling the air valve and letting the air flow into the venturi pump.

There are several advantages to using a venturi Vacuum Pump in a Bubble Leak Testing Application. One, there is no electricity required. Two, A venturi pump does not require oil or maintenance. Three, this system can be used on any table top with an air hook up. The cost is that a venturi vacuum pump is not as powerful and will not pull as much air out and go to as high of a vacuum – we are talking about 3.5 CFM at 26 inHg. This rating is enough for every bubble leak test out there.

Force Decay Leak Testing Systems
Force Decay Leak Testing Systems are instruments that detect and quantify leaks in a test specimen through measuring the drop in force an inflated specimen applied onto a pressure transducer. The specimen is placed into a vacuum chamber, a vacuum is pulled, and the test sample inflates. As the test sample inflates, it applied a specific force onto the force transducer. This force is measured and recorded over time. If a leak exists, the specimen will deflate and lose pressure, as a result, the force it applies onto the force transducer will decrease. This in turn will enable for detection and quantification of a leak in the specimen.
Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps
Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps are the most widely used vacuum pump in the industry. When it comes to performance at a reasonable price, rotary vane vacuum pumps are the way to go. Many Rotary Vane Pumps can achieve 2 to 5 milliTorr vacuum rating at a good volumetric flowrate (2 to 20 CFM) at a very reasonable price (hundreds to a few thousand dollars)
Our Work: Custom Vacuum Chamber with Blank Plate
You are looking at our standard Acrylic Vacuum Chamber, Hinged Door with Clamps. There is only one difference; this vacuum chamber has a blank acrylic plate that is connected to and aluminum plate which in turn is anchored to the side wall of the acrylic vacuum chamber. This blank plate is there to enable our client to add vacuum feedthroughs to the side wall in the future

In the article we are going to cover rotary vane vacuum pumps. We will touch upon how they work, what they are used for, when to utilize a rotary vane vacuum pump, its advantages and disadvantages. Perhaps you have noticed that rotary vane vacuum pumps come in all shapes and sizes. On one website, the vacuum pump is less than a $100; on another website you see a vacuum pump quotes at $10,000. I would imagine that you immediately ask yourself what the deal here is.
