Identify Leak Testing Market growth opportunities by

Chicago, Sept. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Leak Testing Market by Supply, Vertical, Equipment Type and Geography – Global Forecast to 2027. Leak testing determines if an object or system is functioning in a specific leakage limit. Leaks occur when there is a defect – a hole, crack, or other type of defect in an object, allowing any liquid or gas it contains to leak out. Leak testing uses pressure to find these faults so they can be addressed as part of regular maintenance procedures.

Increasing requirements for inspection of cracks, holes, weak joints and other defects and imperfections in automotive, oil and gas, medical devices, consumer goods and packaging are the main drivers which drive the growth of the market.

Drivers: Development of advanced NDT technologies and increasing penetration of IoT and Industry 4.0

Increasing advancements in sensors, chips, valves, and other types of technology have made leak testing more necessary, sensitive, and capable of the non-destructive testing (NDT) method. Advances in NDT have led to the development of ultrasonic leak testing technology used for quick and easy leak detection on compressed air, inert gas and vacuum systems. All of these advancements have made leak testing faster and more accurate and have helped companies improve the quality of their manufacturing processes and overall output. Another significant advancement in leak testing has been the advent of the Internet of Things.

The penetration of IoT has enabled inspectors to collect, monitor and share leak test data remotely, enabling them to get the information they need in time to ensure ideal maintenance. This data can be evaluated not only by inspectors, but also by manufacturing engineers, production managers, maintenance managers and other stakeholders in the manufacturing process, allowing for better real-time understanding. of the state of the assets. Moreover, in the field of leak testing, Industry 4.0 is also driving changes in many critical areas, including the rise of smart test connection tools. These tools allow users to safely make the necessary connections to perform a proper leak test without worrying about false failures or unintentional disconnects.

Important leak test requirements in several automotive industry processes

Many automotive manufacturers around the world rely on top quality leak test systems to detect faults in automotive components or products. This is because many components need to be leak tested to ensure environmental guidelines, safety and function. Detecting fuel and air conditioning system leaks is essential for safety and regulatory steps before the vehicle leaves the production line. In addition, standards organizations define various leak testing procedures for the automotive industry, including the American Society for Testing and Materials and the Society of Automotive Engineers. Thus, the automotive sector is expected to drive the leak testing market in the coming years due to more stringent regulations regarding emissions, fuel component leaks, HVAC system leaks and other higher sensitivities regarding leaks.

Challenges: Excessive purchase, installation and maintenance costs associated with leak testing methods and equipment

One of the most critical challenges with leak test equipment is the high cost of purchase, installation, and maintenance. The maintenance activity also includes the complexities of adding leak testing machines to the existing plant infrastructure. Besides, there are different leak test methods, such as air decay, helium leak, etc. Many industries rely on helium leak testing methods because helium is a common tracer gas in the production of leak tests. As a result, the amount of helium became important when testing large volumes at higher pressures and at high speeds. This has increased the cost of helium in recent years.

Challenge: functional constraint increases maintenance costs in a process

The introduction of water spray creates a temporary two-phase flow in the steam line. The desuperheater should limit the negative effects by reducing the time the steam resides in the system. Vapor velocities are a critical factor in limiting these negative effects. Good piping practice dictates that water flow be limited to velocities of 15 to 25 feet/sec, but steam line velocities are often between 200 and 400 feet/sec. Until the spray water evaporates, the water droplets will remain entrained in the high velocity steam. If these droplets strike pipework or other equipment, they can cause erosion damage.
