• ISO11607-2 (Validation requirements for forming, sealing and assembly processes), requires Operational Qualification (OQ) of packaging devices to be carried out and documented.
  • The OQ is requiring providing proof of:
  • Intact seal for a specific seal width -No channels or open seals. 
  • No punctures or tears in seals.
  • No material delaminating or separation.
  • The OQ needs to be carried out on a daily basis to release the packaging device before use. For this purpose Famos offers two different seal tests: 

    The seal test and the push indicator dye test.

    The seal test can only be used for laminate packaging material.

    The seal test is a paper test.

    The parts which are sealed together are showing a darker area than the surrounding area in order to make sure that irregularities in the seal are easy to see and the complete seal can be interpreted more easily.

    If there is a constant darker area at the sealed location, then it can be concluded that the seal is correct.

    The seal test offers the following fields for documentation: Sealer number, location, date, approval and signature.

    When the sealer has been released for use, the seal test is being documented. For this purpose Famos offers a laminated folder.

    This folder is available separately or as a complete set together with one carton of seal tests.

  • Suitable for laminate packaging material.
  • Contains fields to document various information such as sealer number, location, date, approval and signature.
  • Easy documentation with matching folder (optional)
