The integrity of double seam is crucially important to the entire production process of metal cans. Any double seam
defects can adversely affect the quality and safety of food and drink products.
At Campden BRI, we provide complete double seam assessment and evaluation solutions for food and drink cans. Our
experienced packaging team not only determine double seam defects but can also assist in identifying and understanding their root causes, giving
you confidence that your consumers will receive a safe product.
We can assess internal and external dimensions for any defects and breaching of critical seam parameters using two methods:
- Manual seam teardown
- Sectioning with the use of a CMC Kuhnke seam imager

With a unique range of disciplines under one roof, we apply a bespoke and multidisciplinary approach to double seam assessment. This includes but
is not limited to:
- Air pressure testing - to detect leaks from the double seam and the can’s body
- Internal vacuum pressure measurement - to test can integrity
- Compound weight and distribution
- Sterility testing - to detect any microbiological activity
- Small scale production trials including recipe preparation, carbonation, liquid nitrogen dosage, can seaming, processing and storage under
various conditions. All can be supported with sensory assessment, elemental analysis and shelf-life determination.
