Validate systems with fast and accurate leak testing

Accurate leak testing setups validate process integrity and prevent manufacturing failures and hazards. To reliably leak test components, equipment must repeatably measure low flows.

  • Multi-variable control. Maintain pressure and measure flow with one device, for all-in-one leak testing.
  • Fast system stabilization. Low pressure drops minimize restriction and enables rapid pressure stabilization, for a leak test much faster than pressure decay testing.
  • Reliable control and measurement. Repeatability to ±(0.2% of reading + 0.02% of full scale) from 0.01% to 100% of full scale.

Using a single device for fast and simple leak testing

A single Alicat mass flow controller can control pressure while monitoring flow rate, for a fast, simple way to validate small volumes and components.

Accurate, repeatable low flow detection

Alicat devices are accurate to ±0.5% of reading and ±0.1% of full scale, with 2σ repeatability of ±(0.1% of reading + 0.02% of full scale), for highly reliable leak tests.

Rapid stabilization and direct flow measurement

Pressure decay tests are slow, requiring time for stabilization and calculation steps. Whisper™ instruments with low pressure drops enable the fastest pressure stabilization.

Accounting for natural oscillations

Components like flap valves naturally oscillate. Totalizer and averaging functionalities on leak testers enable component validation even when flow rate varies.

Reducing the Proportional component reduces oscillations: largest value (red) overshoots and oscillates.
