Vacuum Leak Test Systems
Vacuum leak testing is the principal leak test method for testing parts that could have leakage from an external source into their housings and casings. Parts like underwater sensors or housings, outdoor electrical housings, sealed components, and components associated with vacuum sources are all prime candidates for vacuum leak testing. Operation of instruments that supply vacuum to test parts instead of pressure works in a similar, yet essentially opposite, manner as pressure decay testing.
Why Vacuum Leak Testing?
It is sometimes necessary to combine high pressure and vacuum testing. In comparison to pressure decay testing, vacuum leak testing can provide better repeatability because it is less sensitive to environmental variables created by temperature changes. Vacuum leak testing often requires less time to reach a stable test pressure, is less susceptible to potential instability of tested parts, and offers shorter cycle times than tests in many pressure decay applications.
