Market driver: Dishwashers are a typical feature in most kitchens today. This appliance handles water and must not leak or it can cause damage to a house if undetected for a long period of time.
Test Requirements: All the water handling components of a dishwasher are leak tested to assure their leak tight integrity. Components include water valves, fill pipes, water pump, sumps, and return lines.
CTS Solution: Because these components need to be water tight, test stands incorporate the Sentinel C-20 pressure decay leak test instruments to quickly and accurately test 100% of the components. The operator independently loads each station where automatic tooling clamp and seal the part and sequence into the leak test.
