Vacuum leak detection – InterTech Research and Development Capability
Intake manifolds are tested for flow and leakage under adjustable vacuum levels.
- An InterTech M-1075 Mass Flow Leak Detector controls the test cycle. Vacuum level in the manifold is electronically regulated from 0.2 InHg to 20.0 InHg.
- Flows over a range of 30 sccm to 50 lpm are selectable and measured to an accuracy of 2% of reading.
- The vacuum transducer is connected to the test part. When this circuit is evacuated and isolated from the vacuum supply, any leak results in a vacuum rise relative to atmospheric pressure. The transducer output provides a measurement of the vacuum rise proportional to the leak rate.
- All test functions are menu driven and InterTech S-3085 software provides real-time test cycle display, test statistics and data storage.
