Scalable Leak Testing Equipment for Changing Application Requirements

The Optima vT Leak Tester Offers Scalable and Highly Customizable Testing Options For The Most Complex Applications

Manufacturing engineers, quality engineers, automation specialists, design engineers, machine builders and others seeking leak testing equipment for today’s and tomorrow’s application requirements without added costs. To meet these needs, Uson’s Optima vT offers highly customizable leak testing options for the most complex applications.  The Optima vT includes one or two test channels with up to four sensor inputs each, totally customizable pneumatics, multiple built-in automated calculators, myriad data handling and storage options and other features that combine to make the Optima best-match test technology for the greatest number of leak and flow test applications.

Best-in-class leak testing technology without a premium price tag

R&D for the multi-function single or dual channel configured Optima vT Leak and Flow Tester began in 2009 and incorporates Uson’s vast and unparalleled knowledgebase of the wide ranging requirements for leak and flow testing in medical, automotive, packaging, and other industrial parts testing using the unique and adaptable two-channel 8-sensor technology in its core to deliver best-in-class leak test technology without a premium price tag.

Optima vT for your current and future application requirements

Joe Pustka, Uson Technical Specialist comments, “No matter what you want to achieve in your test application Uson can do it and the Optima vT will most often be the leak tester of choice. You want production speed on the order of a million parts a year including highly accurate and multiple tests? We can configure the Optima to be that throughput king. You want a variety of tests done in sequence such as a pressure decay test followed by a series of flow tests in different ranges? That is doable too. Add in custom pneumatic configurations allowing you to select best-match regulators, valves and additional sensors plus a wide range of built-in automated calculators such as those used for temperature compensation or total leakage calculators that can eliminate needs for added test sequences, and other built-in math and you have Optima vT, which hands down is the most versatile leak tester design to ever be released. Optima vT configures to the highly varied specifications for testing that Uson has helped engineer test solutions for ever since we first developed dry air leak testers for NASA almost 50 years ago and then introduced to commercial applications. The Optima vT is a scalable leak and flow tester that is best-match for your application today but also will be configurable to your changing test requirements of tomorrow.”

Key features of the Optima vT  Leak Tester include:

  1. Capabilities for vacuum decay tests, pressure decay leak testing, differential pressure decay leak tests, mass flow leak testing (including back pressure and differential), upstream and downstream cracking pressure, pressure rise tests, burst tests, laminar flow tests, force decay testing, and occlusion testing
  2. State-of-the-art microcontrollers comparable to those used in the most sophisticated and demanding consumer electronics applications
  3. 2 Channels with up to 4 sensors/channel, totaling up to 8 sensor inputs
  4. Simultaneous testing on all sensor inputs
  5. Built-in automated calculators to speed testing and data handling
  6. Fully customizable pneumatic controls
  7. Large easy-to-read full color touch screen display with intuitive user interface
  8. Advanced security features enabling 21 CFR Part 11 compliance
