  • Invisible Threats

    As a kid, I couldn't understand why my mom would get so upset whenever I unplugged the carbon monoxide detector to plug in my Casio keyboard for a living room concert. My stuffed animals had paid good money for their front row tickets and I was sure we would be safe from whatever carbon monoxide was for just half an hour or so. Now I see why my mother was so concerned, especially since I rarely remembered to plug the device back in after my rousing encore. I understand now...

  • Saving the Whales and Leak Detectors

    Most people remember the movie Free Willy. Growing up I both loved and hated it because it was so incredibly sad. It (along with the Fox and the Hound) was one of the first movies I cried in as a kid. If you remember, in the movie the Willy drama really takes of when the bad guys come and crack wholes in the glass, causing massive leaks. These leaks would have slowly drained the tank until there was no water left, and would have resulted in Willy's death. It has...

  • Remember Gas Stoves?

    For my nieces and nephews, it is hard to understand the idea of a gas stove. You mean you have to light it first? Why can't you just turn it on like we do with ours? Being younger myself, I know sort of how they work because my grandparents still have one and I may have gotten in trouble before for not waiting for the stove to catch and nearly blowing the house up but even for me these old products are pretty rare. Much more common, and safe today,...

  • Leak Testers, Keeping People Safe

    In industries such as food production and preparation, medical and automotive, where people are constantly around, gas and liquid leaks have the potential to be deadly. For example, a gas leak in a car or at a restaurant, could easily lead to a major explosion. Having this happen in an enclosed car, or a restaurant or hospital filled with people is a terrible thing to even imagine. Radiation leaks in cars and microwaves can also have negative effects on health. For these reasons and countless others, many of these places...

  • The Resolution That Takes Time

    How resolution can effect leak test cycle time. Some time ago we looked at Gage R&R. In that post we suggested that most repeatability studies require a 10% or better repeatability. This is perhaps better expressed as an example. If the leak rate specification for a part calls for a leak rate of 10 sccm then the system must be repeatable to 10 sccm + 1sccm. Because the 10% repeatability encompasses the complete system – part, seals, air lines, valves etc the instrument itself should...

Industry Information

Leak Testers

Leak testers offer a wide range of methods and mechanisms designed to detect and measure predominantly liquid and gas leaks in industrial, commercial and domestic settings. Food production, medical, automotive and industrial systems frequently use leak testers. Some manufacturers test products and their components before they are released to consumers to ensure quality control.

Unlike leak detectors, leak testers generally do not monitor systems; instead they are used as a diagnostic tool when a given system is running at less than optimal levels. Appliances using refrigerants and methane gases should be tested at the first sign of decreased productivity because the release of these materials can be hazardous to health. Leaking gases can also lead to loss of money and eventually to appliance failure. Depending on the type of leak, the substance can also hurt the environment. As many methods and techniques for leak testing are available, the specifications of the mechanism to be tested should be considered. Pressure decay, mass flow, helium accumulation, vacuum decay and colorimetric development are some of the many testers available. Some of these systems recognize changes in pressure or flow, while others use chemicals to produce visible reactions at the site of a leak.

The most simple leak tester, the bubble test, involves submerging a pressurized test subject in water or coating it in a soapy substance, at which time bubbles emerge from the site of the leak. Although the bubble test is effective and inexpensive, it is not applicable to sensitive equipment. Leak testers should be carefully chosen for more sensitive equipment and situations. Also, testers do not identify the substance that is leaked and so are often used in conjunction with liquid or gas analyzers. These products in the leak detection line are meant for fairly specific scenarios, although leak detectors are more generalized. That is why using leak detectors and leak testers together, produces a well-rounded solution. A variety of methods exist to detect a leak. Gas detectors use a tracer gas to measure the leak based on its ion charge response to the helium or hydrogen they put into the air. Ultrasonic detectors measure the sound waves emitted by gas leaks to locate and identify a leak. Often these detectors are hand held, since leaks usually originate in complex pipe systems that are difficult to maneuver.
