The ability to detect leaks is necessary to ensure consistency and integrity of packages. It is also important to detect leaks and defects that are not visibly detectable. Package integrity testing using destructive inspection methods such as water bath, dye tests, peel and burst tests render ALL tested packages useless, both good and bad. These methods are time consuming and unreliable, producing results that are dependent on technique, sample preparation and operator variability. In addition, destructive methods generate significant product loss, waste and mess. Packages can be non-destructively evaluated using the VeriPac inspection method which is based on vacuum decay technology. Package types include filled and sealed rigid, semi-rigid and flexible packaging made of non-porous or porous materials.

VeriPac’s non-destructive technology is capable of detecting package leaks and invisible defects using an absolute or differential pressure transducer leak test system. Package leaks may appear as imperfections in the package components themselves or at the seal juncture between mated components.
