Pressure Gain Systems

With over 30 years of experience in building leak detection systems, Cincinnati Test Systems (CTS) has touched every market and has the knowledge base that makes us the best in the world. We provide optimized test technologies, including pressure gain, which allows a part under test to be measured with more precision at lower leak specifications.

Pressure leak testing technology is valuable for a variety of uses, including:

Sealed Components

One area where our pressure leak testing equipment excels over the competition is testing parts that are completely sealed—for example, an enclosure containing electronics with potted terminals. We are able to leverage the experience gained as a result of the design and manufacturing of thousands of unique test applications. A leak test method developed and optimized by CTS, called “volumetric fill,” allows our leak detection systems to detect the smallest leaks in almost any sealed part.

High Pressure

Another application for pressure gain systems is testing high pressure components where test performance may be degraded due to adiabatic effects caused when filling with high pressure. This usually registers as “noise” to the leak testing equipment. By placing the component within a sealed chamber, pressurizing the part to the desired test pressure, and actually measuring the pressure gain inside the sealed chamber, a CTS high pressure leak detection system can isolate the adiabatic effects within the part for improved test performance and reduced cycle times.

Burst Test/Integrity Test

We can also provide leak testing equipment for burst test or part integrity test requirements. Our burst test/integrity test solutions operate in a similar manner to our high pressure leak test systems. As a part is pressurized, the leak test system monitors the chamber for sudden changes in pressure or in gain. The chamber includes special design features to protect against damage in the event of a burst.

Pressure Leak Testing for Specialized Parts

Pressure leak testing components like carbon canisters and charcoal water filters pose unique challenges due to the absorbent nature of the materials housed in them. CTS has extensive knowledge of chambered test methods where positively pressurized components are placed in a chamber. Our specialized leak testing equipment applies vacuum to the chamber to create a pressure differential across the part walls. The resultant pressure gain in the chamber (due to the leak across the part wall) is measured to verify whether or not the component meets the stated specification requirements.
