Brake Part Flow & Leak Testing - Series 40 Based System
TQC have recently developed an innovative system for the automatic
testing of high specification brake parts.
The operator manually loads a part into the machine
and connects the test line to do it. Firstly, an air flow test is
performed to check for blockage. If successful, the part is automatically
shrouded in a close fitting test chamber and 3 successive leak tests
are performed using a differential leak test instrument as follows
1. Intermediate pressure leak test (including piston
2. Low pressure leak test - 0.5bar
3. High pressure leak test - upto 160 bar
Good parts are pass stamped on completion.
Two stations allow the leak tests to be carried out on one station
while the flow test is carried out on the other and vice versa.
To allow testing of different sizes and types of parts, interchangeable
tooling is supplied.
Open for Manual Access
Closed for Testing
Machine Incorporates :
- Standard aluminium extrusion bench
- Universal fixture areas
- Light guard access to each station
- Fully automatic sealing fixture
- PLC control system
- Built in leak test instrument
- Standard operator interface panel
- Suitable for medium to high volume applications
- All the leak
tests check for zero brake fluid leakage at various service
- 1st leak test
is performed at 2 bar
- 2nd leak test
is performed at 0.5 bar
- 3rd leak test
is selectable between 35 bar and 160 bar.
- Nominal throughput
is approximately 1 part per minute on a 2-station machine.
If you have any leak or flow testing requirements a cost effective
solution can be developed using standard equipment and bespoke elements
as required. If you are currently considering any type of test application
