The Pioneer of Modern Leak Testing

Leak Testing – Is Near Enough Good Enough?

That’s an interesting question. In the world of leak testing and test and measurement in general we strive for perfection every day. That’s the point of measurements, surely. We want them to be accurate, repeatable and reproducible.

In test and measurement we usually accept some degree of variation which we

SprintmD Demonstrates Innovation

Innovation: That’s the subject of this post. I have been with Uson for over 38 years and in that time we have introduced new products at probably much the same rate as any other industrial goods manufacturer. However, over the last few years I have to say the rate of

I came across this quotation recently and it quickly struck me how it relates to quality assurance. And so, with it being the beginning of a new year, this post is rather more

Leaks in Perspective.

In this post I thought we might try to put hole sizes,leaks, and leak rates in perspective. Much continues to be written about determining realistic leak specifications and the chestnut of the “no leakage permitted” type of specification is still commonly encountered.

Looking through some old training material I thought
