What is Contract Packaging?

Hiring a professional contract packer to handle the complicated packaging process can offer companies in multiple industries a large number of advantages. The packaging process is often overlooked when preparing a product for consumer use.

Businesses address this aspect of preparing their product by either investing in an in-house packaging solution or outsourcing to a contract packaging company. Both in-house and outsourced packaging have their own unique advantages.

  • Technology: CCIT
  • Inspection Features: Non-Invasive, Non-Destructive CCIT based on Vacuum or Pressure Decay Method
  • Inspection Capabilities: Micro leaks detection

Container Closure Integrity Testing is a non-destructive measurement technology based on the Vacuum Decay Method or Pressure Decay Method (in case of a container with a small neck) performed while the package itself is held within a hermetically sealed test chamber.

Vacuum Decay test measures the loss of vacuum inside the testing chamber as a result of headspace gas leakage from the package.

Pressure Decay measurement system comprises applying a pressure differential into an airtight testing group enclosing the container. The test objective is to detect container leakages by measuring the reached pressure level as well as the pressure change over test time.

The monitoring of the vacuum or pressure level allows us to identify micro leaks and rejecting the faulty container.

The leak testing machine measurement system is designed to identify the presence of leaks on containers due to: (micro) holes, inappropriate sealing, and cracks.
