Leak Test

The noise in the background: Ensuring accuracy with helium leak testing

  • Article in Quality Magazine
October 1, 2018

There are some instances where an acceptable leak rate is so small as to be practically zero. Few air leak test methods, such as pressure decay, have the necessary detection range. These situations call for a trace gas-based test method. Learn more in this article in Quality Magazine, written by Cincinnati Test Systems' Systems Engineer, Peter Bonyhati.

How not to fear the Gage R of your leak test

  • Article in Quality Magazine
October 1, 2017

In this feature with Quality Magazine, Rob Plumridge, Sciemetric leak application engineer, discusses how to tackle the first “R” of Gage R&R for leak testing – repeatability. By focusing on repeatability first (before the other “R” – reproducibility), manufacturers can be certain they have addressed all the controllable variables that can impact the leak test, regardless of the equipment.

November 1, 2016

Sciemetric product launch manager Robert Ouellette shares with Quality Magazine how quality engineers can measure and compensate for the sometimes dramatic effects of temperature variations on the accuracy and repeatability of a leak test.

Data Leads to Good Leak Test Decisions

  • Article in Quality Magazine
January 1, 2011

Through the adoption of new leak testing approaches that provide comprehensive data about the entire leak test cycle, manufacturers can get more out of their leak test. Use of process signature technology that provides comprehensive data about the leak test offers manufacturers significant benefits that impact the bottom line. Investment in modern leak test technology delivers a quick ROI, supports compliance initiatives, improves productivity and ultimately, improves product quality.
