Pressure Decay Leak Testing Automated Calculator Now Available from USON

Press release date: March 21, 2012

(Houston, TX) Manufacturing and automated process engineers can now obtain the USON Pressure Decay Leak Test Calculator-- the first in a family of automated USON NDT Test Calculators - to generate nearly instantaneous answers to "What If" modeling of pressure decay leak testing variables and exact returns-on-investment from new 8-sensor concurrent leak testing technology. Copies of the USON Pressure Decay Leak Tests Calculator can be obtained by writing to or calling Joe Pustka, USON Leak Detection Equipment Technical Specialist at 281-671-2212. These automated calculators are available at no charge. Some of the variables that the USON Pressure Decay Leak Test Calculator enables engineers to manipulate includes: -Pressure Ranges (PSIG) -Leak Rate Target -Number of Concurrent Pressure Decay Sensors in Use (up to 8 with USON's Optima vT Leak and Flow Tester) -Customization of test cycle times, including all stages of fill, stabilization, test time, and total) -Part/test volume -among other specifications that vary from application to application, and that Optima vT Leak and Flow Testers can be custom configured for maximize efficiency. Joe Pustka, USON Leak Detection Equipment Technical Specialist, explains that this is the first of several automated calculators USON will be making available in the coming months. Pustka comments, "Pressure decay leak tests are only one of the dozen types of tests that the unique Optima vT Leak and Flow Tester performs. That gives you nearly half a billion different permutations of how you could use this technology if you are looking at test methodology alone. When you add in the innumerable possibilities for part sizes, shapes, volumes, test pressures, acceptable leak rates, pneumatic controls affecting cycle times, and so forth-ALL of which Optima vT can be custom-configured to handle with maximum efficiency-it becomes apparent why we are creating these automated calculators for our customers and all those who are looking at ways to constantly improve test processes, efficiencies and throughput." Pustka continues, "Say, for example, a manufacturing engineer has fixed test pressures and parts volumes but wants to ask "What if we used 8-sensor concurrent leak testing instead of simple two-channel dual testing?" He or she could calculate throughput improvements in seconds and in turn get an exact return-on-investment from trading up to Optima type leak detection technology. As another example of how these calculators can be used, design engineers grappling with effects of subassembly re-designs affecting test volumes will similarly get one-click answers to various "What If" modeling scenarios." Announcements of additions to the USON Automated Calculators for NDT Testing will be made in the coming months. Optima vT and other product inquiries can be directed to Joe Pustka, USON Leak Detection Equipment Technical Specialist, at 281 671 2212, . About USON USON first developed high accuracy leak testing methods for NASA and for nearly half a century has been at the forefront of leak detection, leak testing, and non-destructive testing ---pioneering the development of automated leak detection equipment for the automotive, industrial, medical device and packaging industries. The recently unveiled USON Optima vT Leak and Flow Tester is the world's only leak test instrument with 8-sensors enabling 8 concurrent tests at optimal efficiency to desired leak rate specifications. Headquartered in Houston, TX, the company has additional offices in Detroit, MI, the United Kingdom and China and sales partners around the world. Visit for more information.
