A leak test is performed to identify weak spots as well as to improve product design. The test is performed by using high pressure to check if there is a pressure drop caused by an unintended crack or hole.
Leak tests are often performed before the distribution process in order to meet the safety and quality standards –

Goals of the tests:

  • Improvement of seals
  • Identify the weak spot of a pressure component
  • Determine min and max burst pressure
  • Defining the product specifications
  • Test on leaks of repaired parts
  • Check of leak tightness on connections
  • Check of seal alignment
