Surface Technology offer pressure
testing as part of our Impregnation and leak detection services. We
pride ourselves on being able to solve the porosity problems encountered
by a wide range of customers within the manufacturing industry.
The extensive range of post impregnation
services we offer has been progressively expanded and we continue to
grow our facilities to allow the introduction of new pressure tests to
identify leaks after impregnation.
Few manufactured products can be
considered to be absolutely free of porosity. Even the presence of
minute porosity can lead to the permeation of gasses through metals,
crystals, polymers and glass.Pressure testing can be undertaken prior to
impregnation to identify leaks and also after impregnation to confirm
Types of tests available
There are various types of physical
tests, which can be used to detect, measure and locate leaks. The best
test for each component is one that will provide you with the numerical
and physical data e.g. rate and location of a leak. Several military
agencies and a few industrial groups have developed specific methods and
procedures for performing leak tests. We are approved to carry out most
Here at Surface Technology we have the ability to pressure test cylinder heads and blocks up to a maximum size of 48" long.
