Container Closure Integrity Testing Using Gas Ingress


The CCI Test Vessel provides a simple means of preparing samples for container closure integrity testing (CCIT) using the highly-sensitive and non-destructive laser-based headspace analysis technology. When combined with a LIGHTHOUSE FMS Headspace Gas Analyzer, the CCI Test Vessel offers a robust solution for container integrity tests on a wide range of container types and packaging conditions.


The CCI test method utilizes laser-based analysis to measure changes in the headspace gas composition or pressure in a container that result from gas ingress through a leak.The CCI Test Vessel creates an environment that accelerates this gas ingress through an open defect. Samples are placed inside the vessel and exposed to a tracer gas before the headspace measurement is performed. This approach is similar to a dye ingress test but takes advantage of the more sensitive gas ingress and employs a non-destructive and deterministic analytical measurement as the leak test.
