Seal Leak Testing of Pet Food with our ASTM 3078 System

Did you know that you can quality test your pet food by using our bubble leak testing system? I am not sure if pet food is subject to FDA regulation. As far as a quick google search goes, FDA ensures that pet food is safe and that it serves the intended function. In order to for the manufacturer to produce safe pet food, it must be tested for seal quality and container closure. We don’t want our newly adopted best friend to be eating spoiled food. The question is: would your newly adopted dog tell you that the food she’s eating tastes spoiled? And two, let’s be real here, who do you think adopted who in the first place :)?

Just as our Bubble Emission Testing System can be used to test for seal integrity on food made for human consumption, medical packaging, and nitrogen filled pouches, it can also be used to test for seal and closure integrity of pet food.

What you are looking at is our standard 12 inch Wide, 10 inch Deep, and 8 inch high bubble leak testing system with a rotary vane pump placed on an aluminum frame structure. This system is fully setup and ready to go, just add water.

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.
Rotary Vacuum Feedthroughs
Rotary Vacuum Feedthroughs are devices that will enable you to physically rotate a specimen inside the vacuum chamber while vacuum present without decreasing the vacuum.
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.

How do you test the seal of 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?
