The Double-Seal Closure

PharmaTainer cap sealing
Cross-section view of closure sealing points
PharmaTainer closures seal at two points; on the inside of the neck and also on the top flat rim of the neck. Tests have demonstrated that the closure system holds seal very well. The seal inside the neck is readily achieved when applying the closure by hand. Certain engagement of the rim seal requires application of a known amount of torque.
