Where to Start

How do you determine which leak test instrument is right for your application? If you already know the parameters of your leak testing requirement then you can use the charts below to select the leak test instrument that will meet those requirements. The charts below provide an easy to reference model comparison of all of our products. Match your leak rate with the flow and pressure ranges listed to find the leak tester that fits your needs.

You can analyze your application or contact us directly if you aren’t sure what your leak rate is or if you need help with defining your leak test requirement.
