Pressure Decay Leak Detection
Pressure decay leak detection testing instruments are extremely useful for checking components that have relatively small volumes. The component is pressurized with air and the pressure transducer monitors the pressure for negative changes. Any pressure drop indicates a leak. The test is very fast, a matter of seconds, and is therefore popular in high-volume industries such as automotive components, castings, medical devices and consumer goods.
Sometimes this technique is referred to as gauge decay leak testing or absolute pressure leak testing because it basically measures the drop in pressure on a gauge (transducer) during the leak test.
