Measuring the permeability of enclosures and containers
The Versaperm Permeability Laboratory
can quickly and accurately measure the permeability of enclosures and containers from the smallest pill
blisters through to large tanks.
In cases where a container is sealed on the production
line, the most representative measurements are obtained from samples
where a source of the gas, such as water for water vapour transmission
rates, is sealed into the container on a production basis. This allows us to test the samples rapidly and
accurately, without any interference or sample preparation. Where
this is not possible, a range of alternative techniques are available.
We use a range of chamber sizes,
from 100 ml to 3 litre, fitted inside the instruments. For
large samples, external temperature controlled chambers are
used. Our current limit is about twice the size of a 40 ft shipping
