The PK-V Machine is designed to perform VDM based closure integrity testing of pharmaceutical vials and bottles by placing them in a vacuum test chamber.
It is fully suitable for both 100% in-line and off-line testing at high production speeds.
The leak test takes place into an airtight testing chamber in which a pressure differential is applied (Patent No. 1225063 of 13-9-1988). The test objective is to detect container leakages by measuring the reached vacuum level as well as the vacuum change over test time.
The leak testing machine measurement system is designed to identify the presence of leaks on containers due to:
Machine leak testing measurement system is fully conform to the approved industry standard ASTM F 2338-09 “Standard Test Method for Non-Destructive Detection of Leaks in Packages by Vacuum Decay Method”.
VDM technology is ideal for the closure integrity verification of liquid filled containers by measuring the loss of vacuum in the test chamber as a result of:
Container must be clean and dry.
A dual testing system is also available, allowing testing with both vacuum and pressure decay.
Powder, lyophilized and solid dose filled containers can be successfully tested by the PK-V machine.
Bonfiglioli Engineering was founded in 1974 expressly for the purpose of providing leak testing equipment for a wide range of products.
