Checking Paint Guns for Leaks

A common application for EXAIR’s Ultrasonic Leak Detector is to detect air leaks in compressed air lines. As an Applications Engineer I get to talk to people across various industries. An interesting one I came across recently was for a paint ball gun manufacturer.

They needed to test their guns for air leaks. Typical water bath testing is far too messy and compromised the internal components. Pressurizing the gun and watching a pressure gauge for any pressure drops was way too slow.

Using an EXAIR Ultrasonic Leak Detector was much faster and actually enabled them to mark the source of the leak for rework.
