Seal material testing solution
Published: 2 April 2013 - Rachael Morling
Sometimes a failed seal is not much of a problem, but for mission critical occasions a seal must not fail. So, Versaperm has a range of permeability testing instrumentation to help accurately test and measure seals and enclosures – including individual seals, material samples and even finished units.
Not only will this enable designers and manufacturers to specify the right materials, but it enables QC departments to investigate new materials and check both incoming and outgoing products.
Using products with the wrong permeability causes seals to leak, electronics to fail, and mechanical systems to jam or rust. So, the company’s latest instrument and sensor range can measure permeability for virtually any gas or vapour used by industry. The system can measure several samples, seals, enclosures or products at a time and can be configured to measure permeability with respect to water vapour as well as most other gases.
