Dye Ingress Test inside a Transparent Test Chamber

Dye ingress is most commonly used as a container closing integrity test in order to quality test sterile products. This test is mostly done in the Pharmaceutical Industry or Medical Packaging Industry as means to test for product defects in rigid container. It is based on the concepts set forth by the ASTM 4991 and used as a seal integrity test. In addition to rigid containers, blister packs and heat-sealed trays, can also be tester in accordance to this method.

Our Acrylic Vacuum Chamber is the perfect candidate for the ASTM 4991 Test because the method calls for a “transparent test chamber”.

Fortunately, you have many to choose from since we have a large selection of transparent test chambers. Each of our vacuum chambers comes as a standard with a dial vacuum gauge and two vacuum valves (venting valve and vacuum valve)

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.
Wire Vacuum Feedthroughs
Wire Vacuum Feedthroughs are wires that are run from the outside of the chamber towards the inside of the vacuum chamber. We carry a wide variety of wires and wire gauges that can be used with any vacuum chamber.
Our Work: High Altitude Vacuum Testing of Electrical Connectors and Components
This was an interesting project where one of our customers needed to test wires up to 44 inches long within a high altitude simulation environment. In addition to testing wires, several other electric connectors required altitude testing as well. The altitude requirements were 100,000 feet (30.510 km) which corresponds to 8.36 Torr - a piece of cake when it comes to the vacuum requirements of our chambers.
Related Articles: Force Decay Leak Testing
Force Decay Leak Testing is a very popular quantitative leak testing method used to quality test package and product integrity due to its ability to detect small leaks which cannot be seen through visual inspection. In this method, the test specimen is internally inflated by either internal pressurization or vacuum force. The inflated test specimen will, in turn, apply a force on a pressure transducer. Finally, the change in force applied by the inflated specimen over a specified time is observed.
