Vacuum Decay

Vacuum Decay Method (VDM) is a non-destructive Container Closure Integrity (CCI) method for sealed packages. Manufacturers of packages for the food, beverage, industrial and pharmaceutical industries use vacuum decay to test packages after they have been filled.

ALPS does not offer equipment for vacuum decay. Bonfiglioli Engineering offers a comprehensive selection of vacuum decay equipment. Bonfiglioli Engineering developed their Vacuum Decay Method system in accordance with the ASTM approved test method F2338 that is recognized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a consensus standard for filled package integrity testing. CCI testing is performed while the package itself is held within a hermetically sealed test chamber.
