Bosch KHS for CCI

LIGHTHOUSE has partnered with Bosch Packaging Technology to develop the KHS series for high speed, high performance headspace leak detection systems for identifying loss of container closure integrity (CCI) in sterile products.

Loss of CCI can occur due to component defects (cracks in glass, out-of-specification vial/stopper dimensions or improper vial/stopper combinations) or process defects (displaced stoppers prior to capping, misaligned tooling, rough handling).

Laser-based headspace leak detection systems from Bosch powered by LIGHTHOUSE measurement technology enables rapid automated in-line leak detection by monitoring changes in headspace gas composition or changes in total headspace pressure.
