Leak Testing – How Your Solutions Provider Can Ensure Speed and Accuracy

There are many factors to consider before implementing a successful leak testing solution, such as test pressure, temperature production rate, volume, and part dimensions (including interior dimensions). Then there is leak rate detection to consider. Can the quality of the part be determined with a pass / fail result, or does the leak rate need to be determined and how accurately?

The simple answer is that the acceptable leak rate reduces the options to the two most common methods of leak testing: vacuum or pressure drop. The budget and whether or not leak rate data results are required determine whether an alternative method is necessary. You can also Request a Quote for package leak detection services.

Fortunately, it's your solution provider's job to dig into the details. How deeply your solution provider digs can determine the overall success of the project. Consistently inadequate measurement methods can lead to unnecessarily rejected parts, and process errors can pass parts that will compromise the quality of the final product. supplier and customer to clearly discover the end goal. 

Once the customer's needs are understood, the solution provider's engineering team will analyze the part internally and collect data on leakage limit, ambient temperature, hidden interior volumes, sealing surface finish, the rigidity of the material, and the dryness of the part. 

Tests can be easily configured for various styles of parts, or multiple tests can be performed on a single part, making the leak tester suitable for high- and low-volume production. By adhering to the development process, the leak testing equipment will deliver speed and accuracy, reducing production time for the customer.
