Differential Pressure Decay Testing
One of the fastest methods of leak testing, differential pressure decay is well suited for many applications. Like pressure decay, this method also involves measuring the drop in pressure inside the part over time as a result of escaping material. However, in a differential pressure test, the change in pressure is measured inside the part compared to the pressure inside a control volume charged to the same pressure as the part.
The differential pressure leak test, like the pressure decay test, is easy to set up, but can prove much more sensitive in certain leak detection applications. The sensitivity of the transducer is not related to the actual pressure in absolute or gauge pressure terms, but to the sensitivity of the differential pressure transducer at the test pressure.
Our product line includes unparalleled differential pressure testers and equipment serving the automotive, engineering, medical device and pharmaceutical markets.
