ASTM F testing provides a rapid means of evaluating tendencies for package failure when the package is exposed to a pressure differential.
It is regularly used to assess packages during the manufacturing process and at various stages of the package life cycle. Pressure differentials may occur during processes such as sterilization and transportation.
If correlations between pieces of test equipment are to be made, it is vital that all parameters asfm the test method be exactly the same. Typical parameters of ASTM F testing may include, but are not limited to, package size, material, seal configuration, test equipment, rate of air flow into the package, sensitivity machine response to pressure dropand position of test article.
ASTM F Standard: Creep Burst Tester With Open & Closed Package Test Fixtures
The sample is inserted in the test clamp and is left unsupported and untouched during testing. The sample is inserted in the test clamp and is held firmly enough to keep the package horizontal, sealed and straight during xstm without putting undue preassure on the seal.
This technique limits curling of the pouch, which may affect test results. This technique requires training for repeatability. The sample is inserted in the test clamp and is left untouched during testing, but aetm underneath. In the Burst Testair is introduced into the package at a predetermined pressure and flow rate.
Burst of Unrestrained Packages ASTM F
The porosity or lack thereof of the package material determines the inflation rate for c1140 burst test. Because air escapes through the walls of a porous package during inflation, the flow rate must be increased to compensate for the lost air through the walls and create the back pressure in the porous package. This pressure creates the force needed to rupture the seal.
The Creep Test provides a test for slow shear of the adhesive bond similar to a dead weight hanging on the seal. ASTM F testing is comprised of the following: Burst Test -Determines package strength by pressurizing a package until it bursts.
Creep Test -Determines package strength by pressurizing a package at a set percentage of the known burst pressure for a fixed amount of time. Position 1 Note 1: Position 2 Note 2: Position 2 Note 3: For more information visit www.
