New Non-Destructive Leak Detection System for Blister Packaging will be Exhibited at Interphex in PTI's Booth 2877


Tuckahoe, New York - PTI Inspection Systems will showcase the new VeriPac 410 Leak Detection System at the Interphex Show, May 1-3, 2012 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York, NY in Booth 2877.

The VeriPac 410 inspection system offers non-destructive seal integrity testing and leak detection for blister packs, sachets, and low head space packaging.

Multi-cavity blister packs and low head space packaging use a variety of test methods to determine package integrity, with most being destructive, subjective, and unreliable, commented Oliver Stauffer, vice president of inspection technologies at PTI. "The VeriPac 410 utilizes a combination of vacuum decay technology and differential force measurement to identify defective packages. The 410 offers the capability to test multiple packages in a single test cycle, and it identifies which package is defective. With multi-cavity blister packs, the location of the defective cavity is also identified. Test results are quantitative and provide operators with a definitive pass/fail, eliminating the subjective and destructive nature of other test methods. Another key advantage is the unique system design that enables fast changeover from one blister format to another, which is a common application for blister package manufacturers and contract packers."

The core technology of the VeriPac 410 is based on the ASTM approved vacuum decay leak test method F2338 that was developed using PTI's VeriPac instruments. Stauffer adds, "This is a robust system, specially designed to overcome many of the challenges associated with testing blister packaging that haven't been solved with inspection methods used to-date. The VeriPac 410 is an excellent process control tool for the pharmaceutical industry and the rapidly growing nutraceutical market."
