InterTech Launches New Universal Leak Detector That Eliminates Part Volume Concerns – Universal Audit Tester

Posted by:

Now, one leak tester from InterTech does the job of many specialized instruments and is ideal for quality control in the lab: the new M1075-121y Universal Audit Tester.

The difference between this test instrument and others in the industry is a design breakthrough that eliminates the need for part volume matching as required in pressure decay methods.

“This is a transformative development in leak testing applications that require quick changeover and flexibility,” said InterTech President, Mr. Jacques Hoffmann. “It changes fundamental issues. We eliminate the need for specialized leak testing instruments in the lab. Now, the same instrument can be used for a large engine casting or a small solenoid – just change the part and go.”

Until development of the M1075-121y Universal Audit Tester, “small” parts required instruments with a “small” built-in reservoir, and “large” parts had to be tested on different instruments with correspondingly bigger reservoirs.

Specialized instruments are still best where application speed is paramount, according to Mr. Hoffmann, but he points out that as the instrument’s name suggests (Universal Audit Tester), this new & superior instrument is for labs and quality engineers.

“Whether it is incoming inspection, product development or supplier development, this is how to control costs and stay flexible, and more elegant compared to custom instrumentation dictated by part size or material properties,” said Mr. Hoffmann. “Now, with one leak test instrument from InterTech, quality engineers have more flexibility than they’ve ever had.”

Leak gaging with the M1075-121y covers a much wider range than other models. It handles an amazing array of volumes from 5 to 800 sccm. A bar code scanner interface, simplified calibration and touch screen menus make operation easy and intuitive.

Testing Proportional Valves for Brakes

Posted by:

The proportioning valve reduces the pressure to the rear brakes. Regardless of what type of brakes a car has, the rear brakes require less force than the front brakes.

The amount of brake force that can be applied to a wheel without locking it depends on the amount of weight on the wheel. More weight means more brake force can be applied.If you have ever slammed on your brakes, you know that an abrupt stop makes your car lean forward. The front gets lower and the back gets higher. This is because a lot of weight is transferred to the front of the car when you stop. Also, most cars have more weight over the front wheels to start with because that is where the engine is located.

If equal braking force were applied at all four wheels during a stop, the rear wheels would lock up before the front wheels. The proportioning valve only lets a certain portion of the pressure through to the rear wheels so that the front wheels apply more braking force. For example, if the proportioning valve were set to 70 percent and the brake pressure were 1,000 pounds per square inch (psi) for the front brakes, the rear brakes would get 700 psi.

To ensure that the Proportional Valves you manufacture are capable of handling pressures such as above consistently, test your parts with the InterTech patented Mass Flow technology based leak and functional testing systems. Our robust and efficient systems handle varied pressure ranges and test settings, customised completely to suit your production and testing requirements.

Functional Testing Solutions For Brake Calipers

Posted by:

The brakes are the most important safety feature of any vehicle, and the calipers are one of the most important components of the braking system. They apply the force necessary to slow and stop the vehicle. Producing quality calipers that stand the test of time, wear & tear and is essential to safe operation. If the calipers aren’t working, the car will just keep on going—even when one doesn’t want it to.

History

Disc brakes came on the commercial vehicle market in the 1950s. They represented an improvement over older drum brakes, which were prone to overheating and deteriorating performance over a short amount of time. Nearly all cars and trucks known have front-end disc brakes; some less expensive models still use drum brakes on the rear axle.

The standard brake caliper contains metal plates on both the outside and inside face of the rotor. The plates are faced with brake pads, which are the point of contact between the calipers and the rotors. When you depress the brake pedal, brake fluid flows through a master cylinder, which is linked to a piston housed within the calipers. The piston presses against the pads and forces them against the rotors. The action of friction slows down the rotor and the wheel.

Floating and Fixed

Floating calipers have their hydraulic pistons on the inboard side of the rotor; they move in and out as the brake pedal is depressed. Fixed calipers have their pistons set up on both sides of the rotor and apply pressure directly from both sides, allowing them smoother operation and more braking power; the floaters, however, are less tolerant of any defects or warping of the rotors.

Construction

Brake calipers can be one or two pieces and contain pistons or cylinders made of aluminum or steel. Two-piece designs are less expensive to manufacture, but have some disadvantages, which includes flex, less present in one-piece designs. Brake calipers hold the brake pads and have channels that accept the hydraulic brake fluid that activates the piston to push the brake pad against the rotor.

Materials

Most brake calipers consist of aluminum, as aluminum is very strong, but a light material that can handle the constant wear that exists in the braking system. Minimizing weight is crucial to the design of any vehicle and using forged or cast aluminum brake calipers helps accomplish this goal. Sometimes magnesium alloy is used, but it is expensive and often reserved for race cars. The brake rotors are made of a harder metal, as the friction against the rotor face during braking can bend or warp lighter metals.

The InterTech Solution for Testing Brake Calipers

Here’s one example of a turnkey system designed and built by InterTech Development Company in the USA. Do bear in mind that this technology is now available in India to best ensure that your products are tested with a robust and reliable system while ensuring that your parts meet the standard and quality requirements of your Customers.

Leak Testing Fuel Injector Components

Posted by:

A vehicle’s fuel injection system is responsible for injecting fuel into the engine cylinders, where the gas is burned to produce engine power. A leaky fuel injector, which is a common fuel injection system problem, can significantly compromise engine performance and produce a variety of symptoms.

As described in this article on eHow.com, small things like an erratic engine idle, a misfiring engine, reduced gas mileage and worst case, an excessive fuel leak onto the hot surfaces of the engine intake manifold or engine block causing the fuel to ignite and cause an engine fire. These problems can be arrested in the first instance with accredited testing systems.

Faulty fuel injector components not only are a threat to the end-user / consumer’s life, they also make terrible testimonials to your quality control. That we know isn’t the ideal situation for a component manufacturer, be it of any size.

InterTech’s leak testing solutions offer you unsurpassed excellence in testing solutions, both leak and functional. Here’s one such solution that has helped many manufacturers of fuel injector components to test and verify leaks in their manufactured components.

The Challenge

Fuel injection components often demand 100% leak testing to limits as low as .01 sccm with cycles as fast as 2.5 seconds, 10% R&R quality requirements, while also displaying significant part temperature variations.

Separate tests with different limits are typically needed in the same test cycle for body welds, seat leakage, and overall leakage. Integration of instrumentation software, fixturing and test circuit is essential, as is complete test documentation.

DR-109-Fuel-Injector-Components

Fuel Injector Test Fixture and Parts

Test Process and Solutions

InterTech’s downstream test process features a patented Micro-Flow mass-flow transducer to provide 10 times greater leak sensitivity than any other dry-air test method. A test part is enclosed within a test chamber and pressurized; leakage is measured as a flow increase into the test circuit outside the part, eliminating the need and time for pressure stabilization inside the part. The test circuit is precisely engineered for minimum volume, enabling the Micro-Flow sensor to almost instantaneously measure flows with a resolution of .0001 sccm.

Critical for fast small-leak testing, all fixtures and clamping devices are designed and built for absolute stability to prevent part movement during testing. Seal positioning mechanisms consistently address the test part squarely and firmly, stabilizing their closure forces quickly to shorten cycle times.

Seals are designed for high durability to run thousands of parts per day without replacement. With these unique features, Micro-Flow dry-air test systems deliver .01 sccm testing with less than 10% R&R.

Special Features

  • InterTech’s Patented Bias-Leak checking is especially important for fail-safe operation whenever testing to less than 1 sccm. It uses low-level airflow to confirm test-circuit integrity before each test cycle.
  • Temperature compensation sharpens test accuracy and repeatability by nullifying test part residual heat from welding, fabrication, washing or even operator handling. Custom algorithms based on the test part’s unique cooling characteristics supply appropriate corrective responses across the test cycle.
  • InterTech’s S-3085 networking/diagnostic software graphically visualizes for greater operator control the factors that can compromise a good baseline zero, trigger false rejects or otherwise disrupt accuracy and repeatability.
