ASC Instrument's ASC 7400F series has been specifically designed for rigid packaging, such as vials, syringes, cartridges, bottles, etc. Unlike the methylene blue test, the instrument makes it possible to quantify the degree of tightness, without affecting the container or its contents.
The product to be tested is placed in a mold, in which a vacuum or positive pressure is then created, depending on the application.
After insulation of the mold, the pressure variation is measured for a given time. This pressure variation gives an accurate picture of the container's tightness level.
The FDA recommends this deterministic method as a replacement for the methylene blue test.
A special function allows an integrated verification of the entire measurement chain at each cycle, allowing each result to be certified instantly.
The ergonomics are particularly neat, no effort is necessary on the part of the operator, the instrument ensures the effort necessary for the perfect sealing of the mold.
Loading and unloading is very easy.
Multiple container types and formats can be tested with a single instrument thanks to the interchangeable molds, making the ASC 7400F extremely flexible.
Version 7400F5 allows five vials to be tested simultaneously to facilitate the control of large quantities.
The instruments can also be integrated into production, with automatic loading/unloading.
"We have designed our instruments so that we can be adapted to very different product characteristics. Our specialists have extensive experience in various fields and they will be happy to put this know-how to the benefit of your projects,"says the company.
