There wstm many issues that can come up with either choice- amount of vacuum inside the package, the package design, shape or configuration, the flexibility of the materials all of which need to be astj into consideration. Immersion Fluids – usally, we use water as the immersion fluid, which does not degrade the package being tested. The test is conducted by submerging the packages into water within vacuum chamber.
Ask for more details or tell us your test requirements. Vacuum Chamber – a vacuum chamber should be capable of withstanding approximately one atmosphere pressure differential, fitted with a vacuum-tight cover. The size of the leak that can be detected is dependent upon the products contained, the nature of dd3078 packaging material, and the test parameters selected.
Is there a standard for bubble emission testing that does not require using something like polycrylic to mask the surface? With the first vacuum is taken low enough to allow any remaining air in the package to expand against any pinholes or channel. Depending on the degree of vacuum packing, if the leak is large enough the change in appearance in the vacuum pack may be visible in a short period of time.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. If the leak is very small, it may take some time for the vacuum to be lost and for the change in appearance to be significant enough to catch in inspection.
Last updated on If there is no gas within the package to create the pressure against the hole, this will not be an effective test. If bubbles or seepage of fluid within specimen attributable to a leak are observed, then the specimen fails the test.
Any masking that is done can have an effect on the ability of the user to recognize pinholes in the material surface. Gross Leak Tester ASTM D is a standard test method for determination of gross leaks in flexible pacakging containing headspace gas by bubble emission.

A vacuum gage, an inlet tube from a source of vacuum, and an outlet tube to the atmosphere sahll be connected to the chamber cover. This may give you an answer on c3078 package integrity but is probably not the information you would be looking for to determine the effectiveness of the vacuum packaging.
MFY is designed according to ASTM D bubble emission method and applicable to the leakage determination of packages for food, medical instruments, daily chemical products, cars, electronic components, stationeries and other industrial products. The test sample and test fluid shall be at equilibrium with normal awtm temperature. Need help or have a question?
A vacuum e3078 shall be any transparent container capable of withstanding approximately one atmosphere pressure differential, fitted with a vacuum-tight cover. There are test equipment companies that can help you find the right approach based on the specifics of your package and most have websites that are available on the internet.
Vacuum sealed packages indicate a breach of integrity by losing vacuum and by returning in part or entirely to ambient air pressure.
