Understanding Mass Flow Leak Tests with Isaac HD: Techniques and Applications Explained

Mass Flow Leak Tests are an efficient way to measure flow rates through objects. This test involves attaching a test object to a front port of our Isaac HD and pressurizing it. After that, a pressure sensor compares the test pressure against programmed tolerances, while a Mass Flow Sensor measures the flow during the test phase.

Understanding Mass Flow Leak Testing

This test evaluates whether the flow rate falls within predefined minimum and maximum flow values. Objects meeting these criteria pass the test, confirming expected flow rates and ensuring product functionality.

Differences Between Thermal and Laminar Mass Flow

Thermal Mass Flow measures flow rates by heating a sensor and calculating the energy required to maintain a constant temperature. It is ideal for gas flow measurements due to its accuracy and versatility.

In comparison, Laminar Mass Flow utilizes laminar flow principles to determine flow rates in parallel layers. Laminar Mass Flow is suitable for precise liquid flow measurements, maintaining accuracy despite varying fluid properties.

How Mass Flow Leak Testing Works with the Isaac HD

  • Attachment: The product connects to the Isaac HD’s test port, initiating the test sequence.
  • Pressurization: Regulated air fills the part while the pressure sensor measures test pressure within programmed tolerances.
  • Flow Measurement: The Mass Flow Sensor measures the flow rate during the testing phase.
  • Comparison and Result: The Isaac HD compares flow readings against preset values, determining a pass or fail. The results are displayed on the test screen, indicating pass or fail via illuminated lights.

When to Use Mass Flow Leak Testing

The Isaac HD’s versatility with Mass Flow Leak Tests extends across industries, ensuring the reliability and functionality of critical products within medicalautomotive, and various sectors and applications:

  • Catheters
  • IV Sets
  • Check Valves
  • Tubing
  • Needleless Injections

What is a Mass Flow Leak Test?

The Mass Flow test measures flow rate through an object. Once the object is attached to the test port it is pressurized with regulated air. The test pressure is compared to the programmed tolerance using a pressure sensor. During the test, the flow is measured with a Mass Flow Sensor. Objects that have a flow rate that falls between the max flow value and the min flow value pass while those that do not, fail.

How it works:

  1. The product is attached to the test port and the test sequence is initiated.
  2. The Fill step, pressurizes the part with regulated air. The test pressure is measured to the programmed tolerances using the pressure sensor.
  3. During the Test step the measurement of flow is taken by the Mass Flow Sensor.
  4. The Isaac compares the flow reading to the max and min flow values to determine a pass or fail. The flow reading and test result are displayed on the test screen and the pass or fail light are illuminated.
