Description

Sanatron Force Decay Leak Testing System is an instrument that will enable you to detect and quantify a leak via the force decay method. This instrument is a single channel instrument that enables you to test one specimen at a time. A force decay is a qualitative and a quantitative leak detection method.

The way a force decay test works is by inflating the specimen. This inflation is done by internally pressurizing the specimen through a pressurized air line or placing the specimen inside a vacuum chamber, pulling a vacuum, and generating a pressure differential. The pressurized specimen will swell up and apply force to the transducer. This transducer will measure the force applied and monitor the change in force over time. If there is not change in force, this means that there are no leaks since the pressure inside the specimen stayed constant. On the other hand, if the force applied by the sample decreased over a specified amount of time, you have a leak, this is because the air escaped through a leak path and hence decreased the pressure inside the sample which in turn decreased the force applied to a sample.

Please note that this instrument is not intended to be purchased as a standalone item but rather as a part of a whole leak testing assembly. Feel free to contact us to find out how you can implement a leak testing instrument into your quality control program.

Helium Leak Testing Systems
Helium Leak Testing Systems are instruments which detect leaks in specimen by detecting present of helium. Helium is used as a tracer gas to detect and quantify a leak. For example, a test specimen is filled with helium and placed into a test chamber, a vacuum is pulled and a helium mass spectrometer is connected to the test chamber. If helium is detected, it is due to the fact that it has escaped from the specimen through a leak path. Helium Leak Testing is a qualitative and quantitative method of detecting product leaks.
Roots Blower Vacuum Pumps
Roots Blower Vacuum Pumps are used when a large amount of Volumetric Airflow is Required. Root Vacuum Pumps cannot operate independently and must be used in conjunction with another roughing pump such as Rotary Vane Pump or Piston Pump. The advantages of a Roots Vacuum Pump is that the Pumping Speed can be increased by a factor of 5 up to a factor of 10; meaning that a 20 CFM Rotary Vane Vacuum Pump can now be boosted to pump 120 CFM!
Our Work: Research, Development, and Testing of Weather Balloons inside a Clear Vacuum Chamber
A wonderful company (more like one of the best companies in the world) which is currently involved with the research, development, and testing of high-altitude weather balloons, had a need for a vacuum chamber capable of achieving about 100 micro Torr (Micron) of ultimate Pressure for their testing environment. Fortunately, acrylic vacuum chambers are the perfect choice when it comes to Low, Rough, and Medium Vacuum.

In this article we will discuss the vacuum levels of an acrylic vacuum chamber. This article also covers the leak rate or the leak tightness of the acrylic chamber. Additionally, we are going to recommend a rule of thumb used for vacuum pump selection based on the size of the vacuum chamber.
