Product Sheet: Seal-Scan™ — Seal Integrity Testing

As more and more packages and processors convert to flexible packaging from more traditional forms of rigid methods including metal cans, PET and glass bottles or jars, they are confronted with the concern and challenge of how do they insure or equal the seal integrity levels from flexible packaging that they have come to expect from these more traditional packaging methods.

Insuring seal integrity on rigid packaging formats has not always been easy or guaranteed either, but time and technology has dramatically reduced and in many cases eliminated the risk of leaks on many rigid packaging methods for the experienced packager today.

Package seal integrity is particularly critical when packaging certain products including liquids, powdered product, retort food and refrigerated foods which typically utilize modified atmosphere "gas flushed or vacuum," commonly implemented to maintain product freshness and extend shelf life. However, the importance of seal integrity goes well beyond freshness issues. For certain types of applications and processes the risk of poor seal integrity can be a critical health or safety concern.
