Industrial & Appliance: Leak & Flow Testers

Introduction to Leak & Flow Testers

Why test leak and flow in industrial and appliance component?

Testing for leaks determines the integrity of the component. Testing for flow determines the actual flow rate and identifies if an obstruction exists.

Pressure decay test: An inflation test in which a non-porous component is pressurized to a preset level. After the pressure has stabilized, the decay in pressure over a preset time is evaluated to determine if a leak is present.

Vacuum decay test: Similar to the Pressure test, except a preset vacuum is established inside the component, and the decay in the vacuum is evaluated to determine if a leak is present.

Non-destructive testing: By using specific instruments and fixtures a non-destructive method of either pressure or vacuum decay leak testing of closed, non-porous components, products or packages that will save product loss that accompanies destructive leak testing.

Leak testing as a science has come a long way from submerging your product in water and observing the bubbles that rise. If you are new to leak and flow testing, or if you feel that you need your vocabulary refreshed, we strongly recommend that you take a few minutes and browse through our informational course, Leak, Flow and Package Testing 101.

Leak Testers and Flow Testers for the Industrial and Appliance Industry

We at TME understand that implementing a leak test system for industrial or appliance testing often requires some creative problem solving. The TME engineers and designers have dealt with issues involving minimizing testing time, integrating the leak tester into automated production equipment and designing fixtures to specifically accommodate the product being tested. The TME Solution™ Leak and Flow Tester is the height of flexibility to enable our engineering staff to meet your needs.

Mass Flow Testers

Mass flow testing is a valid method for identifying occlusions in an open-ended test part such as a hose or tube. Any obstructions in the part will restrict the flow of air through the device, thereby causing the part to fail the test. The TME Solution™ and the TME Worker™ Leak/Flow or Leak/Occlusion Tester can be programmed to perform flow tests or backpressure occlusion tests.

In certain circumstances, either pressure decay or mass flow testers can be used for leak testing. Depending on the size of the leak you are searching for (and the volume of your product), mass flow leak testers can have several advantages, including speed of test (1-2 seconds, rather than the longer time required for the pressure decay fill, settle, test cycle). The mass flow test is not dependent on temperature or air density, which may be a difficulty for the pressure decay test. The TME Solution™ and the TME Worker Leak and Flow Tester are each configured to perform both leak and flow tests.

With our many years of experience in industrial leak test and flow test systems, our Applications Specialists can help you determine the most appropriate leak test system (leak tester, accessories and/or fixtures) for your product to ensure that you receive the best possible value for your investment and comply with applicable industrial standards.
