IDM Instruments, in conjunction with AMCOR Researchand Technology, have designed
and manufactured FLEXSEAL, an advanced leak detection system designed for monitoring
the seal performance of flexible and semi rigid packages.
Cov tseem ceeb rau Flexseal:
The design and development of the packaging system has come under close scrutiny with
a great deal of emphasis placed on the integrity of the final product. Although factors such
as type of package, materials of construction, size and desired outcome all add to the equation
ntawm saj zawg zog pob sam xeeb, lub tsiaj hiav txwv los lub dag lub zog yog ib qho tseem ceeb.
FLEXSEAL was developed in responseto an industry wide need for improved quality
assurance of packaged foodproducts. FLEXSEAL is a useful tool for the manufacturer
of product, needing an airtight package, where protection of the internal product from
tej ntsiab yog tsim nyog los xyuas kom meej qhov cov neeg siv kawg ntawm zoo.
Once all considerations of package material and design have been finalised and a validated
sealing process employed, one of the ways of effectively monitoring the integrity of the
package is to test the condition of the seal via FLEXSEAL. Other testing methods, such
as the Hot Tack Test, can evaluate the strength of the seal, whereas FLEXSEAL can
detect the integrity of the seal ie: the seal may be strong but will still allow air to pass
Kev pab cuam:
FLEXSEAL provides the user with a valuable visual method of determining the
kev ncaj ncees ntawm lub pob thiab foob.
The simple process is quick and easy to monitor the heat-sealing process in
Allows rapid detection of failures.
Enables early corrective action to be taken.
Adjustable air pressure.
Lwm yam Xeem Txoj kev:
Some testing labs use Dye Penetration to test the seal integrity. A low surface-tension
solution and dye indicatoris used to flow through any channels in the seal. Although this
is a sensitive leak indicator, it is very slow andntxhov ceev tau rau ib tug ntau lawm kab.
The Vacuum Leak test involves submersing the package in water in such a way that it is
difficult to detect the location of the leak. The vacuum method has been shown to be
an inadequate test to accurately qualify and quantify the seal performance of snack bar
products. Again, like the dye penetration test, the vacuum leak test is more time consuming
than using FLEXSEAL and not suitable for porous material.
Tracer Gas Systems have proven to be not only expensive, but complex and present many
teeb meem qhov twg reproducibility thiab rhiab heev cuam tshuam lub sij hawm ntawm kev soj ntsuam.
FLEXSEAL operates up to 50 programmable menus involving various selections of
submersion lub sij hawm, thov cua siab thiab cov khoom xaiv. Thaum cov neeg teb xov tooj muaj
loaded the menu relevant to the product under examination, FLEXSEAL can proceed
to perform the test cycle. The product will then be subjected to selected air pressure
while submerged in a bath of water, where the operator can view the location and leak
tus nqi ntawm tej npuas emanating los ntawm lub pob. FLEXSEAL can also be used to determine
lub creep thiab tawg thaj chaw ntawm cov ntsaws ruaj ruaj. Cov no yog cov ob tug lwm tseem ceeb nyob rau hauv kev foob ntseeg.
FLEXSEAL, being very economical in comparison, is the quickest and easiest visual way
to test the integrity of flexible and semi rigid packages, although it is not the only test
