Learning Theater: Ingress Leak Testing—Protecting Products from their Environment

What is the impact of foreign material ingression on your product?  Leak Detection Product Manager JP Deluca will present Ingress Leak Testing: Protecting Products from their Environment.

  • When: Wednesday, October 24 at 1:00 pm
  • Where: Learning Theater Track #2

What will I Learn?

Engineers are required to design and manufacture products which must function in a wide range of challenging environments. Ingress of foreign materials into a product can reduce shelf life, operating life, alter performance, or render the product inoperable all together. Such environments include high dust and humidity, water immersion, or even the inside of the human body, just to mention a few. Understanding the wide range of environments a product will be exposed to and the impact foreign material ingression may have on the product is key to developing a maximum acceptable ingress leak rate for the product. Additionally, a comprehensive knowledge of the different leak testing methods including capabilities, strengths, and limitations, is essential to successfully implementing an effective production leak test protocol. To gain a greater understanding of the different leak testing methods, we will review common challenges, leak test methods, and industry standards and practices related to leak testing for ingress protection.
