PakScan is a non-destructive, multi-product seal integrity tester for pouches, sachets and flexible packaging.
Using force decay technology, the Sepha PakScan is a non-destructive, multi-product seal integrity tester developed to verify package integrity of non-porous flexible packaging. The machine offers a clean and dry leak detection test solution for modern manufacturers and packaging companies that pack dry product in pouches, sachets, bags and stick packs containing dry powder or solid components/medical devices.
The Sepha PakScan is a non-destructive test method. The machine performs a dry seal integrity test enabling manufactures to recover packs that have passed the leak test and return them to the production line.
The system can identify gross holes, leaks and weak seals down to 10μm* in up to 10 packs simultaneously within 30 seconds. The method provides deterministic and objective results, visualised on the result screen via a pass or fail for each individual packet. The software is developed in line with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations enabling manufactures to store and export data for audit purposes, while protecting reports from being edited or deleted.
The PakScan is suitable for flexible packaging made from non-porous material including PVC, PVDC, Aclar and Aluminium foils and laminates. The system offers standard configurations to include 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 or 10 packs and can be customised to accommodate larger packs. The table below shows the different pack sizes per configuration:

Drug stability testing in laboratories
R&D departments test materials to ensure the correct materials are used to protect new products from contamination by moisture, air and bacteria.
QA Testing of packaging processes
Build leak tests into the Quality Assurance procedures for your packaging line. Objective seal testing ensures the integrity of the packaging process.
Reduce production rejects
Minimise reject pouches and sachets and waste disposal created in pharmaceutical production and packaging facilities by carrying out leak testing more frequently. Earlier detection of a leak means line operators can troubleshoot the cause of a leak before a large volume of faulty packages are produced.
Non-destructive test generates less waste and bigger product yield
Accurate, validated results for each pouch or sachet
Quicker troubleshooting for line set-up to reduce rejects
