The Leak Test consists of a tightness test or leak detection which can be carried out on lines, welds, tanks and other products to search for any leaks.
High-sensitivity foaming action detectors can be used in areas at risk, as well as sniffers and other equipment designed to detect pressure drops or leaks.
On equipment where it is not necessary to create a pressure difference (e.g. methane line), you can spray directly and observe the possible formation of bubbles.
If you need to create a pressure difference, the equipment Vacuum Boxcan be used, which consists of a set of transparent boxes equipped with gaskets that adhere to the piece by depression (e.g. tank bottom).
ISPECO also uses electric pumps able to reach pressures up to 180 bar for cylinders and hoses testings.
Moreover, if you are interested in the identification of losses of volatile organic compounds (VOC), such as methane, benzene, ethylene, propylene, see
THERMOGRAPHY for the identification of losses of volatile organic compounds (VOC).
