PTI’s Seal-Scan featured as Machine of the Month in Pharmaceutical & Medical Packaging News



Integrity Testing
A company reports that it has sponsored an interlaboratory research study utilizing its
Seal-Scan technology, and the test method being studied has been published as ASTM
F3004-13, a new non-destructive test method for evaluation of seal quality and integrity using
airborne ultrasound technology. The method can be used for inspection and evaluation of
flexible package seals of all material types, such as Tyvek, paper, foil, aluminum, and plastic
and laminated materials. It provides qualitative pass/fail test results and quantitative data
analysis. Defects such as wrinkles, contamination/inclusion, channel defects, misaligned seals,
delamination, and incomplete or missing seals can be found. The company manufactures
nondestructive inspection technologies for micro leak testing, container closure integrity
testing, and seal integrity testing of drug packaging such as vials (liquid filled and lyophilized),
ampules, blisters, empty and prefilled syringes, pouches and flexible packaging, bottles and
other rigid containers, and BPC and API bulk containers.
