50 years ago, Uson first developed the technology for automated leak testing for the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Later, our leak testing methods were applied to a variety of industrial applications.
Leak testing innovation has continued at Uson as is evident by our recent unveiling of the Optima vT, a leak tester that is capable of performing nearly half a billion permutations of leak, flow or other NDT tests. It is by far the most advanced testing technology in a highly configurable and versatile package that can handle a wide range of applications known today as well as testing products of the future.
Despite all of the innovations in leak testing, one thing hasn’t changed – the laws of physics. Physics has always been and will continue to be the primary driver of all leak test specifications. It determines the choice of test methods and the optimal test times at specific pressures and other parameters.
To quickly identify the best leak testing method, technology and the right equipment, requires being very familiar with the relevant physics. That comes easy to us at Uson because we eat, breathe, and sleep leak testing.
