Leak detection

High voltage can be used not only to increase the surface tension of an object. Tantec’s engineers have taken advantage of the principle that a voltage between two electrodes always looks for the shortest path – and thus developed a technology that can detect even the smallest holes as small as 3 micrometers.

LeakTEC can be used in the inspection of all non-conductive materials and is particularly suitable for quality control of cast joints and welded joints in medical equipment such as pipettes, needles and containers. The test is fully automatic and can even be performed at very high production speeds. Via a digital interface, LeakTEC can be integrated into an existing production line to automatically separate defective parts from intact parts.
