At FTI, we understand that our safety component manufacturing customers are depended upon to provide thoroughly reliable parts and products. Because of this, our job as a leak test provider for that industry is even more critical. FTI follows the highest industry standards for quality and safety, and because we serve an international market of customers, we make sure that we meet the standard global regulations for fuel tank leak testing as well.
Which Leak Tests Are Most Beneficial to the Safety Component Manufacturing Industry?
Safety components come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and as such the industry requires a variety of leak testing options to suit each part’s unique needs. Explore a selection of our available leak-testing methods below:
Helium Testing for Braking Systems, Air Bag Inflators, and Other Safety Components
The Accumulation leak test is a testing method used to detect leaks without the use of vacuum chambers. As a company that is dedicated to leak testing, we know what works when it comes to accumulation leak testing. Explore the advantages of working with Future Technologies.
Pressure Decay for Safety Components and Braking Systems
As one of the most commonly used testing methods, it is important to find a pressure decay leak test provider that is both reliable and efficient. Because pressure decay leak testing is very simple and not expensive, it is the first method to be considered for most safety component projects.
Hard Vacuum Mass Spectrometer (Inside/Out) Leak Testing for Air Bag Inflators
The “Inside Out” testing method is a type of hard vacuum mass spectrometer test that quantifies leaks without being affected by volume or temperature. Because of this, “Inside/out” leak testing is commonly used to verify the integrity of safety components, including air bag inflators.
When it comes to air bag inflators, precision is key. An exact amount of gas is used to inflate the car’s airbags during a car crash to prevent injury, which is why it is crucial that the amount of gas stored in the device not diminish over time due to a leak. Hard vacuum mass spectrometer leak testing ensures each inflator is reliable through the use of an evacuated vacuum chamber.
Air Flow Testing for Safety Components and Braking Systems
Air Mass Flow Testing is a technology that can determine the rate in which a fluid or gas leak flows. This testing method can be used for calibration purposes, when safety components must meet certain flow requirements. When our customers come to us with large volumes of safety parts that need testing, we often recommend air mass leak flow testing.
