Non-destructive fast IP67 leak testing

Posted by:

It is often confusing for an engineer to know what type of rating they need to look for when they desire to have a “waterproof” enclosure as there is a big difference between waterproof, water resistant, and other descriptive but not specific labels / requirements.

The Ingress Protections (IP) rating system is published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

Users of InterTech’s test instrumentation get the competitive advantages of streamlined leak testing for various user product types with quickest response times, fast recovery from gross leaks (transducer saturation), testing that is independent of variations in supply pressure, and constant cycling from ambient pressure to test pressure, among other benefits.

Leak Testing Trends: Technology Updates – Article

Posted by:

For a broad range of automotive, medical and other products, leak testing requirements before products are released to the marketplace have not changed. What has changed in recent years is several new technologies—some related to data handling and the Industrial Internet of Things and others relating to test techniques—that now change the calculus of determining best-match solutions for leak testing.
