In-House Product Testing

Industrial Specialties Mfg. offers a full line of specialty services to complement our products. One very valuable service offering is our wide array of in-house testing capabilities. These include: leak, pressure, vacuum and burst testing.

Some of the steps used to test fittings are listed as follows:

Leak Testing

Leak Testing

Custom and standard fittings, valves and filters can be tested for leaks. Parts are either connected to a pressurized line and held under water for bubble testing, or we use a pressure decay leak tester to verify the fact that the part doesn’t leak.

Pressure Testing

Pressure Testing

The pressure decay tester is also used to make sure that other fittings are pressure tested to meet strict ISM standards.

Vacuum Testing

Vacuum Testing

Depending on the use of the fitting, ISM also performs vacuum testing, as necessary.

Burst Testing

Burst Testing

Our laboratory also has a burst system. Burst testing is performed to determine the maximum pressure a fitting, valve, filter or tubing assembly can handle before it fails. We use a standard 4 to 1 safety factor to determine maximum working pressure. Therefore, for example, if a valve fails at 200 psi, we will then rate the valve with a maximum operating pressure of 50 psi.
