Companies already know that leak testing offers many benefits. These benefits include having better quality and safer products. In addition, some products perform better when they are maintained as close as possible to their original condition.

 

In addition, exceptional quality control that limits packaging defects also helps manufacturers to gain reputation for delivering products that are consistent in their quality. This means better sales, more returns for investors and ultimately growth in the company's output. However, what other benefits of leak testing are there?

 

Here are some leak testing facts and the benefits of leak testing that you may not already know.

 

Gather Data With Leak Testing


Leak testing involves much more than simply finding leaks in packaging. In fact, a leak testing system offers much more than that in terms of data. Every time you test a product with leak testing equipment, you are gathering data about your manufacturing processes that help you determine the efficiency of your overall manufacturing system.

 

Identify System Failures


Every rejected product serves as a data point that will deliver an explanation for the failure of your manufacturing process. The leak tests will actually be able to uncover exactly where your manufacturing process is failing, allowing you to act as a detective to figure out where the problem is.

 

The type of leak that is detected by the leak detection equipment can also tell you if there has been a failure of a specific part within the leak testing equipment itself or within another part of your manufacturing system.

 

In general, there are 5 different types of leaks. Since each type of leak displays different characteristics, it is possible for you to use the type of leak to uncover exactly where your system has failed during the manufacturing process.

 

Creating Better Products


Sometimes leak testing equipment can help identify leaks that are actually the result of poor product design. This means that product itself is actually the culprit of the leak and not actually the subsequent processes involved in manufacturing the product. In this instance a full examination of the product design is essential to ensure that the product is actually up to standard.

 

In short, leak testing equipment have the potential to impact every step of the manufacturing process. From product design all the way to the packing line, leak testing equipment help companies ensure that they produce the best quality products possible and that they are always improving their operations in order to continue delivering products that meet and exceed the professional standards of their industries.
