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)

Helium Leak Testing Systems
Helium Leak Testing Systems are instruments which detect leaks in specimen by detecting present of helium. Helium is used as a tracer gas to detect and quantify a leak. For example, a test specimen is filled with helium and placed into a test chamber, a vacuum is pulled and a helium mass spectrometer is connected to the test chamber. If helium is detected, it is due to the fact that it has escaped from the specimen through a leak path. Helium Leak Testing is a qualitative and quantitative method of detecting product leaks.
D-SUB Vacuum Feedthroughs
D-Sub Vacuum Feedthroughs are universal connectors that enable you to connect from the outside towards the inside of your vacuum chamber. We carry a large list of D-subminiature connectors for your vacuum applications such as the 9 pin, 15 pin, 25 pin, 37 pin, and 50 pin or a combination of any described.
Our Work: Vacuum Testing of Lithium Ion Batteries, Thin Film, Fuel Cells, Supercapacitors, and Nano materials
This vacuum chamber is a modification to our basic acrylic vacuum chamber 12 inch, removable lid model; except that our customer requested additional ports and electrical feed-through for testing of electrical equipment under vacuum. You know, I wish we would have asked them for more details on what they were doing with this chamber; their short and concise answer was that they were using our chamber to perform scientific work on the subjects of: lithium ion batteries, thin films, fuel cells, super-capacitors, and nano-materials testing in a vacuum environment.
Related Articles: Bubble Leak Testing using an Acrylic Vacuum Chamber
Bubble Leak Testing or Bubble Emission Testing is a procedure where leaks are visually detected and located through the emission of bubbles while the test specimen is submerged in water. In this article, we will talk about using an acrylic vacuum box as a leak detection device. We are also going to talk about the advantage, disadvantage, and the bubble leak emission test procedures.
