  • 5.0 PROCEDURE:

Qualification of the equipment should meet the acceptance criteria outlined in the following steps.

  • 5.1 Performance Verification Report:
  • 5.1.1 Performance of the equipment shall be verified by simulating the normal operation i.e. sealing of aluminium foil (sealing wad) retained in head space of cap with lip of HDPE bottles (containing product) online. While doing this exercise consideration shall give to the operating range of the equipments i.e. size of bottle (40 cc and 1300 cc bottles), size of cap (33 mm and 53 mm caps) and speed of conveyor.
  • 5.1.2 The generated data during performance of equipment are recorded in a following table.
  • 5.1.3 Acceptance Criteria:
  • 5.1.3.1 There shall be no single bottle found with improper sealing and burned sealing wad and inside surface of cap.
  • 5.1.3.2 Leak test shall be negative i.e. tablets, silica gel canister and cotton shall not be moistened.
