New leak and flow test system

15 June 2021

Chell Instruments has introduced the PIT 100, a self-contained automated leak and flow test system.

Pipe-work integrity (the PIT 100) is said to be the first instrument of its kind – performing a number of tests to determine the integrity of pressurised pipe-work, looms or harnesses. 

Leaks threaten the integrity, accuracy and safety of many critical pressurised systems. This automated system can quickly and consistently calculate leaks in tubing looms. It can test both a single port or up to 16 ports simultaneously, so can be used for both small and large operations. 

It’s three main functions are leak testing, continuity testing and flow testing. 

It can perform leak tests by applying pressure to all the ports in use, isolating the pipe-work or harness from the supply and then measuring any pressure decay. 

For continuity testing, it can also test multi-way looms. Each channel is pressurised and the operator can then confirm that the gas is being passed through the appropriate port. 

Lastly, it can be used as a flow tester. The test is used to detect abnormalities in the system, such as restrictions or breaks which give a different flow of gas and therefore a different measured pressure.
