Leak Quality Testing and Quality Control of Packets

Quality Control during Production runs is a very important procedure you must perform on your manufactured products. This is especially critical is you are an FDA manufacturer where regulatory compliance is important and necessary. Our Vacuum Chambers are specifically built to assist you meet your Quality Control and Regulatory compliance needs.

This is a custom Bubble Leak Testing System that has been converted to a vacuum and pressure chamber. There are several cool tests that can be performed with this system. The first test is a dry vacuum test which can be used to vacuum leak test products such as heat-sealed pouches or trays. The second test is a bubble leak test. This is performed by filling the acrylic vacuum tank with water and submersing the pouches underwater and looking for bubbles. The lid has a package restraining mesh which keeps inflated specimen from buoying upwards during the bubble emission test. The third test is a pressure test meaning that this chamber can be safely pressurized up to pressure between 5 to 15 PSIG. You do not have to think about adjusting your pressure in order to keep below the specified overpressure because this system has a safe pressure relief valve that will pop open if the pressure has reached more than 10 PSI Gauge Pressure. Of course, there is also a water drain valve located on the bottom wall of the chamber.

This system comes with an Oil Free Piston Vacuum Pump which does not emit oil mist into its surrounding. The vacuum pump does not require much maintenance either. You can see that the pump has a Vacuum Pump Protection Valve which will prevent any water from entering the vacuum pump. The Lid is fully removable and versatile. This is a table top system intended to be operated inside a clean laboratory or an FDA manufacturing facility as part of Quality Control.

Vacuum Bubble Emission ASTM 3078 Leak Testing Systems
Bubble Emission (ASTM 3078) Leak Testing Systems are instruments that are used during the Quality Control process discover and locate leaks or seal integrity failures. Leaks are detected by submerging the specimen into a tank of water, applying a vacuum, and inspecting the submersed specimen for bubble emission. Our Bubble Leak Testing Systems are designed and built to conform to the ASTM D3078 protocol standard.
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: Pressure and Vacuum Chamber used for Calibration of Weather Stations across the US
Have you ever wondered how the weather forecast works? You must admit; the weathermen (or weatherwoman) have become a whole lot more accurate over time. 10 years ago, the weather forecast was not as accurate as it is today. Part of the reason is that we have better forecasting technology as in more powerful computers who crunch numbers faster to out a most likely scenario. Another reason is that mathematics, physics, and science has progressed. The main reason however, is that we have better tools and equipment.
