Major Types of Air Leak Tests

Air leak tests are crucial when verifying product integrity and performance. These tests assess the presence of leaks caused by imperfections like holes, cracks, or defective seals, allowing you to maintain product quality and meet regulatory requirements. Each test type serves a distinct purpose, enabling you to select the most suitable method based on product design, materials, and desired sensitivity:

  • Pressure Decay Test: Measures leaks by observing pressure changes within a closed system.
  • Vacuum Decay Test: Determines leaks by monitoring pressure changes in a vacuum-sealed system.
  • Occlusion Test: Checks for leaks by assessing the flow rate through an object or system.
  • Mass Flow Test: Measures leaks by analyzing the flow rate of gas or liquid.
  • Burst Pressure Leak Test: Determines the pressure at which a product fails, indicating potential leaks.
  • Pressure Cracking Test: Identifies leaks by assessing pressure fluctuations that cause cracks.
  • Chamber Test: Examines leaks by testing products or systems within a controlled chamber environment.

The Importance of Air Leak Tests for Manufacturers

Effective air leak detection ensures product reliability, minimizes waste, and upholds regulatory compliance. Manufacturers and OEMs like you rely on these tests to maintain high-quality standards and prevent potential hazards or malfunctions. By incorporating these test types into manufacturing processes, companies can assure product integrity and reliability while adhering to industry standards and regulations.
