Feasibility Studies For Container Closure Integrity Testing Applications

Data Analytics Strategy

PTI Inspection Systems are scientific instruments being deployed for high risk packaging applications. The environments in which these systems operate is often highly regulated with test results having a significant impact on operational decisions. The reliability and sensitivity of a CCI test method is critical to assure that correct decisions are made to maintain product quality and patient safety. If PTI’s equipment is going to test your packaging, we aim to deliver the most effective solution. Feasibility studies offer a detailed glimpse into the technological capabilities ahead of critical purchasing decisions. Feasibility studies can also act as a preliminary test method for an application. The results from feasibility or method development testing can be rolled out to the production environment for rapid validation and deployment.

Different test methods exist to inspect and assure package quality and performance. The main purpose of the feasibility study is to understand the most optimal inspection technology that provides the most accurate, sensitive and reliable data for definitive package integrity verification.

PTI’s feasibility studies for container closure integrity and package quality leave clients with a clear report of a quantitative test method to confirm the recommended approach as it relates to a specific package format. Known good test samples, as well as positive control samples with certified defects, are used. The report details the technology solution, specific leak test method, test parameters, test result data and acceptance criteria.

Benefits of a feasibility study for Container Closure Integrity Testing (CCIT)

  • Selection and validation of the suitable test method for each individual unit under test.
  • Multiple leak testing technologies and methods from a single source with informative comparisons related to the respective part.
  • A comprehensive feasibility study report that provides an overview of the test execution, results and recommendations for your specific application.
  • Cycle-time optimization to prepare industrial tightness control with minimized capital investment.
  • Gage R&R studies to prove high level of quality assurance right from the beginning of the product life cycle.
