Abstract:

This report presents an evaluation in Container Leak tests, i.e., the squeeze technique, para 6.4, versus the vacuum chamber technique, para 6.2, prescribed in method 5009-1 of Federal Test Method Standard 101-B. The squeeze test was found to be a suitable alternative to the vacuum chamber test for determining leaks in flexible self supporting containers sealed in atmospheric conditions.
