The portable leakage tester now makes it possible to ensure that actuators are still leak-tight and moisture-proof following interventions like electrical installation, retrofits or repair work. Critical factors for leak tightness include making sure that cable entries at the actuator’s electrical connection are properly sealed, and that O-rings in the housing joints are intact and correctly seated.
To carry out a leak test, the compact device is screwed to one of the various housing openings on the actuator or the actuator controls. An integral pump pressurises the housing, after which the device measures the pressure loss over a predefined period of time. The result is shown directly on the display.
Intuitive design and pre-defined test procedures make the tester easy to use. Custom test procedures can also be stored. The battery-operated device can be used throughout the plant, with no external power supply.
