Custom Leak Test Applications

New, higher cost refrigerants, hydroscopic concerns with POE oil, and the flammability of environmentally  friendly refrigerants has put more emphasis on the leak testing process. Combining multiple tests into a single automated cycle performed within a required takt time is the goal of many manufacturers.  A comprehensive leak test process can include multiple tests, including:

  • N2 Proof Test
  • Pressure Decay Test
  • Capillary Flow Test
  • Helium Leak Test
  • Evacuation and Vacuum Test

These systems can be configured to accommodate multiple units in a mixed production environment and automatically sequenced to provide a comprehensive, efficient leak testing process.

Attaching DataServ 3.0 to this test process can create a very effective tool to monitor , record, and improve your process and product quality. DataServ 3.0 provides a detailed operator interface, a process analysis tool, test result storage and retrieval, communication with upper level process scheduling systems, maintenance support, and remote intranet / internet access.

These systems can operate from a local test gas supply or in conjunction with our centralized Helium Recovery and Recycle System.
