Sift Resistance Test Procedure Demonstrates sift resistance of liner-less packages with shrink band applied for external tamper evidence (Straight-up Product Shipping)
Sift Resistance Test 43mm FlapMate has the same sift-resistance performance as a sifter fitment and CT closure and better performance than competing dispensing closures 43mm FlapMate: New Seal Technology Seal bead detail Seal bead detail
Sift Test Objective To confirm new product’s sift-resistance level To ensure customers’ comfort level with eliminating a liner from the package using FlapMate closure
Sift Test Procedures 1. Torque Meter measures the torque of a closure on a bottle in inch-pounds. 3. The package is placed into a fixture so that the bottle stays in place when the test is conducted. 4. The configuration is placed into a sieve shaker. The test is conducted for one minute. 2. A Heat Gun is used to shrink the tamper-evident band around the bottle and closure.
Sifting Levels Level 3: Dusting – Increased particle count, one layer of beads or product, too many to count. Level 4: Sifting – Accumulated particles, multiple layers and deposits, possibly measurable by weight. No sift under the band Small amount of sift above the center cleanout One layer of product above the front curve Multiple layers of product above the front curve Level 1: No visible sift Level 2: Particles – Visually definable individual media glass beads or product, plenty of space surrounding product, countable.
