Countless defects, such as failed seals and microscopic holes, can cause problematic leaks in would-be leak-free products. Air leak testing is a clean, fast, effective, repeatable, and non-destructive method of determining whether or not a product has been properly manufactured to meet leak-proof requirements. This process can be applied to any product that requires water- or air-tight construction. Air leak testing not only detects leaks, it also provides non-subjective data on leak rates for further study. With air leak testing, OEMs can be sure that their products are being manufactured to their specifications for leak-tightness. It can also help them identify design flaws that can cause leaks. Fire sprinkler systems, automobile radiators, medical devices, and countless other products require air leak testing the guarantee proper performance. A wide range of specially designed equipment exists for air leak testing purposes, from small benchtop models to complex, multi-device systems.
