Vol 5 No 1
Tested: PET Bottles Post Capper
Inspection Desired: Leak Inspection for Carbonated Bottles
Tested with: TapTone 4000 Dual Sensor Compression (DSC) System
The purpose of the evaluation was to establish the effectiveness of the T4000-DSC in identifying containers with defective cap’s or cap liners, misapplied caps or imperfections in the container’s thread area or sealing surface. Carbonated beverages in PET containers typically have internal pressure ranging from 30-60 PSI, so obtaining a proper seal in the capping process is a critical control point.
