Air Leakage Tester Pushes Boundaries

Sep 21, 2023 |

The acceleration towards electric and green technologies has led to fresh challenges for vehicle designers and manufacturers. Reduced interior noise – in both the test room and in vehicles –  extended glazed areas and the general need for improved air quality are pushing the envelope of test machinery, often requiring substantial capital expenditure to find solutions.

Sensing Precision has supported vehicle manufacturers globally for over 30 years with its range of cabin leakage testers. This now includes the new Paton 225 NVH leakage tester – a small, portable device capable of supplying and extracting up to 225 l/s of air from vehicles. With it’s easy to use custom interface for fan control and flow/pressure reporting, the Paton 225 is ideally suited for R&D and is perfectly sized for medium to large European cars and SUV’s. It also makes a great first unit for customers new to equivalent body hole size testing for both product improvement and competitor bench marking purposes.

Designed to reduce the time taken to validate build accuracy, the time savings made by adopting  the Paton range help decrease bottlenecks in design and production associated with cabin leakage testing. It also offers engineers the power and flexibility to examine build accuracy at all stages, from design through to final assembly.
