LACO’s AURA™ Air Leak Testers offer vacuum decay, pressure decay, differential pressure, mass flow, and mass flow differential leak test methods. They are ideal for manufacturers who
LACO Technologies is excited to announce the launch of LACO Technologies México. This new office will be managed by Mr. Hermann Reese, who has over
Successful implementation of a leak test system in a production environment starts with clearly stated requirements. Those requirements are often supplied to a prospective supplier
In this article we cover the leak testing method of visual vacuum bubble leak testing for use on product and food packaging containing headspace gas.
Just as a high altitude mountain climber will experience lower oxygen levels due to reduced atmospheric pressure, packaging will be exposed to pressure changes associated
Vacuum degassing of oils (hydraulic oil, hydrocarbon oil, transformer oil, turbine oil, brake fluid, hydraulic brake oil, etc.) is a common process to improve purity
In this article we will cover production leak testing of gas insulated high voltage switchgear and associated subassemblies. Gas-insulated high voltage switchgear typically use a sulfur hexafluoride
WHY LEAK TEST? Production leak testing is implemented to verify the integrity of a manufactured part. It can involve 100% testing or sample inspection. The goal
An airbag inflator is a device which fills airbag cushions with gas during a car crash. They exist everywhere there is an airbag in your
dslauretta Guest Blogger: Vicky Hamilton, OTES Deputy Instrument Scientist To help characterize the asteroid Bennu and aid in the selection of a scientifically compelling sampling
NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission will send a spacecraft in September 2016 to the asteroid Bennu in order to extract a sample and bring it back to earth.
In some leak test applications production part contamination cannot be avoided due to harsh manufacturing environments, especially in industrial processes. These contaminants might include oil, grease, water,
