Pressure Leak Testing

special testing

Imperfections such as cracks, holes, or bad seals can cause gas or liquid to escape through the wall of a vessel. A difference in pressure generates a flow through the leak, from higher to lower densities. These leaks can result in costly downtime and lost production. At Applied Technical Services, we meet your pressure leak testing needs by utilizing industry leading methods for detecting, locating and quantifying leaks with enhanced accuracy.

Over the years, ATS has established a reputation as an authority in the leak testing industry, dedicated to providing you with service of the highest quality standards. Our pressure leak team has received certification over multiple leak testing methods by the American Society of Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT). Common services offered includes:

  • Pressure Decay
  • Vacuum Leak Testing
  • Bubble Leak Testing
  • Helium Mass Spectrometer Leak Detection
  • Helium Detector Probing
  • Duct Leakage Inspection
Unmatched Quality

At Applied Technical Services, we can detect even the smallest leakage rates (under 1 cubic centimeter per 300 years) for almost any vessel where a differential pressure can be generated. This testing is inert and does not react with components under examination. In evaluating the quantitative leak rate of components, our professionals use leak standards traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to calibrate and verify equipment and test systems.
