Which Leak Tests Are Most Beneficial to the HVAC Industry?
A wide range of leak-testing methods are available for HVAC products. While each method has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, the following list includes leak tests that are thoroughly approved and capable of handling HVAC applications:
Pressure Decay for HVAC
Pressure decay leak testing is both a reliable and efficient leak testing method which is why countless HVAC manufacturers already depend on it for Gross Leak Testing their products. Because the pressure decay process is simple and inexpensive, it is the first method to be considered for leak testing.
Air Flow Testing for HVAC
The Air Mass Flow Testing method ensures that HVAC parts meet certain flow requirements. When our customers come to us with a large HVAC testing order, we often recommend air mass leak flow testing.
Helium Testing for HVAC
The Accumulation leak test is a testing method used to detect leaks without the use of vacuum chambers. The accumulation leak testing method is an excellent method to use for applications that see variations in temperature, making it ideal for HVAC products.
Hard Vacuum Mass Spectrometer (Inside/Out) Leak Testing for HVAC
The “Inside Out” testing method is a type of hard vacuum mass spectrometer test that quantifies leaks without being affected by volume or temperature. Since this leak test is temperature independent, it can endure hot, cold, and fluctuating temperatures alike.
