InterTech’s unsurpassed patented test technologies

Posted by:

ASTM F2338 and ASTM F3287-compatible InterTech systems – testing down to single digit microliters per minute – are fast becoming a proven boon to new product development for a wide range of global life science product innovators.

InterTech’s patented MicroScale leak test technology eliminates the errors (both false positives and false negatives) inherent in previously used pressure testing methods.

Time-to-market for high throughput manufacture of fast clinical testing instruments is reduced by 50%.

Product quality traceability is assured by deterministic test technology that eliminates potential for lapses in operator judgement over entire product lifecycle.

GMP implementation is built in to all InterTech solutions – cutting waste and losses, as well as protecting medical manufacturers, drug processors and end-user patients from any negative product safety events.

InterTech Superior MicroScale Leak Testing – Biomed Application

Posted by:

Recent history has shown that global leaders in biomed product manufacture are often gaining market share because they have used the same superior InterTech MicroScale Leak Test technologies long proven in other industries, such as high-precisions automotive components.

By doing so, these best-in-class biomed product manufacturers accelerate their time-to-market for a wide range of medical products requiring superior microleak testing.

These turnkey microleak testing solutions – for both in-line testing and audit testing – have at their core InterTech’s unsurpassed patented test technologies– superior mass flow test sensors, pressure decay test sensor designs, and unique test fixtures.

Manufacturers of the valves, regulators and related components

The Challenge:

How much pressure?  Manufacturers of the valves, regulators and related components needed in these processes must assure that pressures sometimes in excess of 1000 bars are well within the functional range of their products.

Consider the skyrocketing growth of high pressure fuel injection, both Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) and Diesel Common Rail Fuel systems. Once limited to high performance vehicles only, GDI is now relatively lower cost, and utilized even in the smallest commercial gasoline engines.

Whether it’s GDI vehicles or other applications, functionality hinges on being able to operate in a high-pressure environment safely.

  • High-yield methanol production…
  • Food sterilization…
  • Hydrogen Fuel Cells…
  • Diesel and Gasoline Fuel Injection…

An extensive array of industries —renewable energy, automotive, chemical processing and more — have production applications that hinge on creating and maintaining high-pressure operating conditions.

These high-pressure industrial processes all have a need for valves and regulators that will work reliably and repeatedly in extreme conditions.

Life Science Glossary

Google has become a default dictionary. But really, Google is the tool that leads to the definitions we seek; it doesn’t actually provide the definitions.

Websites such as IDC do!

We understand that keeping track of all the new terms and acronyms on specific industries can be challenging; it seems like there are new terms and abbreviations popping up every day.

We’ve put together a list of some of the more common Life Science related terms that you may hear.

How Superior Leak Testing Is Paving the Way for New Energy Vehicles of ALL Varieties…

Posted by:

A consensus is building that perhaps the best approach will be to match the type of vehicle with the type of use. For example, battery EVs may be the best approach for city buyers to replace petrol cars. But more expensive Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV), powered by hydrogen, might replace diesel trucks, buses, and large SUVs because BEVs – or at least the designs of today—have too many batteries and take too long to charge.

It’s useful to remember that a hydrogen vehicle is still an electric vehicle that just uses a different mechanism to generate electricity for propulsion.

What is also clear to the deep bench of leak test engineering expertise at InterTech Development Company is also that the success of ALL of the New Energy Vehicle designs on the drawing board or in production, hinge, in part, on best GR&R leak testing technology.

Electric? Hydrogen? Hybrid? Autonomous? More topics…..

Topics Discussed in this Exceptional Design Update include:

  • Makers of Battery Operated Electric Vehicles (BEV) are always up against the extreme heat gain intrinsic to battery operation.  Without an effective electronics cooling technology of some type, battery life is short-lived.  Any and all designs for electronics cooling in turn rely on coolant system integrity.
  • Hydrogen powered electric vehicles must similarly safeguard the integrity of the fuel cell components operating at high pressures by mastering leak-proof sealing technologies. Similar to the Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) components of many plug-in hybrid vehicles, leak testing must contend with the real-world high pressure conditions in which components must reliably function.
  • Add to this alphabet soup of New Energy Vehicles (NEV), the demands that makers of Autonomous Vehicles (AV) face in ensuring absolutely fail-proof package integrity of sealed electronics critical for cameras, radar and lidar technology.
  • Simply put, every variation of NEV designs – both extant and in design phase—must have reliable and highly accurate leak test systems in order to function as designed. Contact IDC for a new design report n key technology in the BEV area.

Advanced leak testing systems for both hydrogen-powered vehicles (FCEV) and GDI components in Plug in Hybrid EVs (PHEV) designs

Advanced leak testing systems — used both in-line and for audits of a wide range of New Energy Vehicle components — have at their core InterTech’s unsurpassed patented test technologies: superior mass flow test sensors; test sensor designs; and unique test fixtures.

Now, InterTech test instruments can also handle the extremely high pressure test conditions required for GDI components used in plug-in hybrid designs.

InterTech’s Test Engineering Team has created turnkey test systems to verify coolant system integrity of BEVs, high pressure leak testing for both hydrogen-powered vehicles (FCEV) and GDI components in Plug in Hybrid EVs (PHEV) designs, and IP67 compliant sealed package testing for the electronics controls of autonomous vehicles (lidar, radar, and cameras.)
