Ultrasonic leak test

New dimension of the bubble test in the water bath

Detect and localize leaks with an ultrasonic leak tester up to 10⁻⁵ mbar x l/s

Ultrasonic leak testers are the further development of the so-called “bicycle tube” method – you are probably familiar with them. Your bike has a “flat tire. And now? Now it’s time to remove the defective hose, inflate it, keep it under water and analyze where the ultrasonic leak testers for fuel tanks air bubbles come from! This procedure comes pretty close to the actual ultrasonic leak tester. What is hopefully only seldom necessary for your own bicycle takes place every day millions of times in industrial series production. Because an infinite number of products have to be leak-proof and are tested using the “bicycle tube” method, also in the automotive industry (tank, petrol or brake line, pump housing …) or in building technology (gas meter, radiator or faucet).
By using our ultrasonic leak testers, the formerly subjective worker water bath test becomes an objective, semi or fully automatic ultrasonic leak test system. It is also possible to use an ultrasonic leak tester to not only detect a leak, but also to localize it. Furthermore, this can be implemented up to a leak rate of 10⁻⁵ mbar ⋅ l / s. Therefore, the ultrasonic leak tester can be used for a wide variety of components and test parts. E.g. for fuel tanks, gasoline or brake lines or fittings and radiators.
In addition, this test can be used universally and can be used in industrial series production in various industries.

✓ Brake lines
✓ Die-cast parts
✓ fittings
✓ Gas meter

✓ radiators

✓ Canned food

✓ fuel tank

✓ fuel lines

✓ Alloy wheels
✓ Pump housing
✓ Spray cans
✓ valves
✓ water taps
✓ etc.

Areas of application

Not only the automotive industry has special quality requirements for its products, but other industries also manufacture products that place high demands on a corresponding tightness. Among other things, the leak test of hot cylinders (boilers) from the heating, building, water management and energy sectors should be mentioned here.
Not only do fuel tanks have to be checked and tested for leaks in the automotive sector, but also filler pipes. This can easily be done using ultrasound, even with a combination of fuel tank and filler pipe. Leak testing by means of an ultrasonic leak test is a proven and reliable quality control method.
Due to the strict requirements for the hydrocarbon emission values ​​of fuel tanks, the ultrasonic leak test plays a central role in the quality control of fuel tanks. The specifications are increasingly tightened. With the optional ultrasonic gas bubble detection, not only can the leak be detected, it can also be localized.
