Validation and support services

Audion provides various services to support the validation process.

  • Calibation services

    Would you like your sealing process to be validated conforming ISO 11607-2? Then your sealer must be calibrated.

    Audion provides calibration services for our validatable sealers. The critical process parameters (seal temperature, seal force, seal time/speed, etc.) are measured with traceable measuring devices and a calibration certificate will be issued.

    New sealers as well as sealers already in use can be calibrated. For re-calibration, the sealers are requested to be returned to Audion. We first check the status of the sealer. If necessary, parts will be replaced, and/or the parameters will be fine-tuned. The sealer will then be calibrated.

    If the sealer cannot be returned to Audion, call our service department to make an appointment for on-site calibration.

    (*) On-site calibration service is currently limited to a certain group of sealers.

  • Seal integrity test

    Would you like to know the integrity of your seal? Call our service department for SIT (seal integrity test) services.

    Our experienced service engineer will visit your factory with calibrated measuring devices and test kits. Seal samples will be made with your sealer and material, and the following tests will be carried out.

    • Seal check according to ISO 11607-2 (to check intact seal for a specified seal width)
    • Dye penetration test according to ASTM F1929 (to check no channels or open seals)
    • Peel test according to EN 868-5 Annex D (to check tensile strength of seal)

    When the results are qualifying the requirements, a certificate will be issued accompanied by relevant documents.

  • IQ/OQ checks

    Would you like your sealing process to be validated conforming ISO 11607-2? Or do you want to be sure that the sealer you are buying conforms the ISO requirements?

    Call our service department to make an appointment for IQ/OQ checks.

    Our experienced service engineer will visit your factory with validation protocols, calibrated measuring devices and test kits.

    Contents of IQ check:

    • Check critical alarms and functions.
    • Operation training for your operation staffs. Operation training certificates will be issued.
    • Maintenance training for your service staffs. Maintenance training certificate will be issued.

    Contents of OQ check:

    • Verification of appropriate sealing parameters.
    • Make seal samples at target parameters as well as at the worst-case conditions.
    • Carry out seal integrity tests:
      • Seal check according to ISO 11607-2 (to check intact seal for a specified seal width)
      • Dye penetration test according to ASTM F1929 (to check no channels or open seals)
      • Peel test according to EN 868-5 Annex D (to check tensile strength of seal)

    When all the checks and tests have qualified the requirements, certificate of IQ check and OQ check will be issued accompanied by relevant documents.
