Tank Air Pressure Decay Test Fixture

BSE Job 1732

This fixture was designed to allow ease of manual loading of the tanks. The operator manually loads the “capped” tank into a fitted fixture that locates the tank based on its geometry. The operator initiates the test cycle by engaging the two anti-tie touch sensors. The test sequence follows pre-set parameters and consists of maximum test pressure, minimum test pressure, and test duration. Parts that pass the leak test are automatically impact stamped and released. Fail parts are held until the operator acknowledges the failure through a reset button. Expected operating test pressure is 20-40 psi for 8 seconds, with pressure sensitivity dection of less than 10 psi.
