Leak Testing & Inspection
Leak testing, in a basic sense, can be traced back as early as 300-400 BC, when it was originally used to determine the ability of a container to hold water. Modern leak detection techniques advanced during World War II and the Manhattan Project. The last few decades of technological advancement have necessitated and improved the simplicity and sensitivity of leak testing equipment. Improved electronics, higher quality pumps, and more automated systems make leak detection, specifically HMSLD, a very reliable and repeatable process.
A “leak” is any unintended crack, void, porosity, or flaw which leads to the escape or admission of contaminants such as a liquid or gas. “Leakage” is the actual loss or admission of material. Leak tests are direct evaluations of the quality of a component. Tests can be as simple as submerging a pressurized component and looking for bubbles. Depending on the technique, results can be qualitative or quantitative.
