PATON 500 Leakage Tester
The PATON 500 Leakage Tester is designed to allow an engineer to test the leakage rate of a vehicles’ cabin. It is the extended-range machine in terms of performance and is ideal for NVH leakage testing most road vehicles including vans and minibuses.
The PATON 500 Leakage Tester is designed to allow an engineer to test the leakage rate of the cabin of larger vehicles such as vans and minibuses whilst still being able to test the smallest passenger vehicles. The PATON 500 Leakage Tester works by pressurizing and depressurizing the vehicle under test to a specified pressure, and measuring the air volume flow generated to produce a leakage rate, or equivalent body hole size.
The PATON 500 is the mid-range NVH leakage tester designed to meet 90% of NVH leakage testing requirements. It is equipped with a fan that is capable of achieving 500 l/s of air flow, and static pressures in excess of ± 2500 Pa.
The Paton 500 includes a touchscreen windows PC control system, an air heater and a smoke machine.
