FOOD MANUFACTURING WHITE PAPER

  • An Introduction To Vacuum Decay Leak Testing

    Vacuum decay is a test method that has been proven over decades and improved with new technology innovations. The test method is simple in principle and challenges container integrity based on fundamental physical properties. It involves drawing vacuum on a package within a test chamber and monitoring the vacuum level for any decay, which would indicate a leak. The method established itself as a non-destructive replacement to the water bath leak test. It provides significant savings by not wasting product for a leak test, and generates return on investment in under six months for many products.
