Gross Leak Tester ASTM D is a standard test method for determination of gross leaks in flexible ast containing headspace gas by bubble emission. There is an ASTM bubble emission test asym flexible medical device packaging that uses internal pressurization to detect gross leaks in tray or pouch packages. Depending on the degree of vacuum packing, if the leak is large enough the change in appearance in the vacuum pack may be visible in a short period of time.
The FAQ was successfully sent! If there is no gas within the package to create the pressure against the hole, this will not be an effective test. The first method F breaks the vacuum and inflates the package.
ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. Vacuum sealed packages indicate a breach of integrity by losing vacuum and by returning in part or entirely to ambient air pressure.
This test method covers the determination of gross leaks in flexible packaging containing a headspace gas by bubble emission. There are test equipment companies that can help you find the right approach based on the specifics of your package and most have websites that are available on the internet.
Need help or have a question? Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. A vacuum chamber shall be any transparent container capable of withstanding approximately one atmosphere pressure differential, fitted astn a vacuum-tight cover. With the first vacuum is taken aztm enough to allow any remaining air in the package to expand against any pinholes or channel.

The test sample and test fluid shall be at equilibrium with normal room temperature. A vacuum gage, an inlet tube from a source of vacuum, and an outlet tube to the atmosphere shall be xstm to the chamber cover. Is there a bubble emission standard for testing vacuum-sealed pouches?
Use an immersion fluid which does not degrade the package being tested. Last updated on d30078 The size of the leak that can be detected is dependent upon the products contained, the nature of the packaging material, and the test parameters selected.
Positive pressure inside the package asm the vacuum is drawn may force the package to plug small leaks. MFY Leak Tester MFY is designed according to ASTM D bubble emission method and applicable to the leakage determination of packages for food, medical instruments, daily chemical products, cars, electronic components, stationeries and other industrial products.
Vacuum sealed pouches might require a different approach. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Ask for more details or tell us your test requirements. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

If the leak is very small, it may take some time for the vacuum to be lost and for the change in appearance to be significant enough to catch in inspection. Positive pressure inside the pouch after the vacuum is drawn may force the product to plug small leaks.
ASTM D3078 – 02(2013)
A vacuum gage, an inlet tube from a source of vacuum, and an outlet tube to the atmosphere sahll be connected to the chamber zstm. Is there asfm standard for bubble emission testing that does satm require using something like polycrylic to mask the surface? If bubbles or seepage of fluid within specimen attributable to a leak are observed, then the specimen fails the test. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Any masking that is done can have an effect ast, the ability of the user to recognize pinholes in the material surface.
ASTM D is a standard test method for determination of gross leaks in flexible pacakging containing headspace gas by bubble emission. The procedures for testing are presented in details. Nonporous materials were not part of the round robin testing. Labthink has more than 50 international distributors and v3078 than 30 international service providers.
There are many issues that can come up with either choice- amount of vacuum inside the package, the package design, shape or configuration, the flexibility of the materials all of which need to be taken into consideration. Immersion Fluids – usally, we use water as the immersion fluid, which does not degrade the package being tested.
The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
The d078 is conducted by submerging the packages into water within vacuum chamber. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Vacuum or pressure decay both non-destructive tests function by creating a pressure differential. Viscoelastic effects on the products, or entrapped air, become significant and prevent passage through small openings. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.
This may give you an answer on the package integrity but is probably not the information you would be looking for to determine the effectiveness of the vacuum packaging.
