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.
Roots Blower Vacuum Pumps
Roots Blower Vacuum Pumps are used when a large amount of Volumetric Airflow is Required. Root Vacuum Pumps cannot operate independently and must be used in conjunction with another roughing pump such as Rotary Vane Pump or Piston Pump. The advantages of a Roots Vacuum Pump is that the Pumping Speed can be increased by a factor of 5 up to a factor of 10; meaning that a 20 CFM Rotary Vane Vacuum Pump can now be boosted to pump 120 CFM!
Our Work: Research, Development, and Testing of Weather Balloons inside a Clear Vacuum Chamber
A wonderful company (more like one of the best companies in the world) which is currently involved with the research, development, and testing of high-altitude weather balloons, had a need for a vacuum chamber capable of achieving about 100 micro Torr (Micron) of ultimate Pressure for their testing environment. Fortunately, acrylic vacuum chambers are the perfect choice when it comes to Low, Rough, and Medium Vacuum.
