Machine / Leak Test Equipment
The leak test method used is very dependant on the specific application
and the leak rate that is acceptable, these principles are outlined
on the Basic
TQC Ltd specialise in standard and bspoke solutions for the automatic
leak testing of components using water submersal, air decay, vacuum
or helium methods.
For these systems, standard leak measurement instruments are incorporated
. Test pressures between vacuum and 16bar (150psig) are available
as standard. Leak measurement may be made down to a resolution of
1 atm.mm3/sec. All test parameters may be programmed into the instruments,
and the result data is available for subsequent SPC analysis.
For these systems, TQC provide complete test facilities utilising
leak test instruments and pumping groups from proven, world-leading
companies that specialise in Helium leak test instrumentation. Helium
leak testing is generally used for specifications which are too
stringent for pressure decay, or where the component is large in
volume or not stable in shape or temperature. The leak measurement
resolution may be typically 1 x 10-6 atm.mm3/sec.
- Lowest cost
- Simple to understand
- Direct value results
- Direct calibration
- Temperature dependent
- Component must be stable
- Limits temperature effects
- Assists sealing loading
- Reduced stabilisation time
- Often a faster throughput
- Indirect leak calculation
- Complex fault detection
- Most sensitive (x 10-6)
- Independent of temperature
- Independent of volume
- High throughput
- Most expensive
- Most complex
