Pressure testing is a way of stress testing a product. The product is pressurized with air or other media to control the structural integrity. This type of test is always surrounded by thorough security measures.
Leak testing is performed with air or tracer gases to ensure that the test piece is not affected by the test. The goal is to measure the leak rate in or out of the component or product. Leakages can occur due to cracks or pores in the material. The test is performed against a product specification often seen on drawings, which states an allowed leak limit at a given pressure and temperature.
Leak finding aims to locate the leak in the product. It is not a method to determine the size of the leak. Methods range from pressurizing components under water and detecting bubbles to probes that detect tracer gases escaping the product.
Why leak test?
Leak test aims to reduce or eliminate leakages in the finished product. Products can be everything from engine components to complete heavy duty diesel engines. The main goal in leak testing is to avoid costly repairs due to leakages. Other benefits are lowered environmental impact, higher performance and longer life time of products.
We want our customers to notice a difference between us and other suppliers. This will be achieved through a professional and personal contact between us and our customers.
