PTI Will Showcase New E-Scan HVLD Micro Leak Test System at Interpack in Hall 12, Booth C13-3

PTI Inspection Systems will showcase the new E-Scan 625 HVLD Micro Leak Detection System at the Interpack Show, May 12 – 18, 2011 in Dusseldorf, Germany. PTI Booth is located in the PMMI US Pavilion in Hall 12, Booth C13-3.

PTI has partnered with Nikka USA to promote their HVLD high voltage inspection technology. HVLD is completely non-destructive to the container, is a non-contact, non-invasive test with no sample preparation required. HVLD has proven to be a highly sensitive leak test method for various types of pharmaceutical packaging (pre-filled syringes, liquid filled vials, ampoules, blow-fill-seal containers, liquid filled pouches). HVLD can be used on a wide range of liquid based products, including products with suspensions, emulsions and protein.

The E-Scan 625 is a new offline lab instrument utilizing HVLD technology designed to inspect individual samples for micro leaks and sealing defects. The compact benchtop design is ideal for laboratory testing and R & D purposes.

Heinz Wolf, general manager of PTI Inspection Systems, commented, "The HVLD test method ensures product seal integrity by identifying small pinholes, micro cracks and seal imperfections that cannot visually be seen. E-Scan 625 features a fast test cycle, produces highly repeatable results and is easy to operate. Additional benefits include quick changeover and easy test parameter changes to accommodate a wide range of products and applications. Another advantage is the HVLD method can be easily migrated from the laboratory offline to 100% inline testing applications at high production speeds. This is a huge advantage and overall simplifies the inspection and validation process."

Benefits:

  • Non-destructive, non-invasive, no sample preparation
  • Defect detection down to 1 micron
  • High level of repeatability and accuracy
  • Cost effective with rapid return on investment
  • Zero waste
  • Simplifies the inspection and validation process
  • Offline and 100% online inspection at high production speeds
