Which industries can benefit from vehicle deluge water tightness test facilities?

DRYSYS designs and builds every deluge testing facility to meet specific testing criteria. A vehicle is drenched with water at a set flow rate and pressure to ensure the vehicle meets the build criteria in testing facilities incorporated into production lines. Deluge models are controlled by a PLC network that monitors the test criteria, such as water flow rates and water pressures, and time and travel speeds.

At DRYSYS, we offer a bespoke, personalized service, which means our team is ready to assist you from start to finish, regardless of what industry you are in. The entire process of conceptualizing and designing, testing and commissioning, and after-sales support is handled in close coordination with your team. As a leading design and construction company for vehicle water deluge systems, we excel in providing custom facilities that are tailored to the needs of our customers.

Deluge watertightness testing facility can be designed, developed, and manufactured to suit any type of vehicle for a range of automotive sectors.

As far as the automobile industry is concerned, finding and irradiating leaks is crucial not only for measuring, reporting, and marking the quality of new vehicles but also for ensuring a durable and long-lasting product throughout its lifecycle.

Following the production process, a leak detection test will be carried out throughout the entire process. However, a final check will be carried out at the final assembly line after all the parts have been assembled, along with the vehicle’s air conditioning and fuel systems.

Undoubtedly, the identification of leaks in the fuel and air-conditioning systems is extremely important to ensure safety and regulatory measures are taken before the vehicle leaves the assembly line. The testing of these systems is extremely regulated, whether it is a passenger car, a truck, or a farm vehicle.

 

A wide range of leak rate requirements applies to the various parts of the vehicle that need to be tested. Fuel components must be leak tested with higher sensitivity as a result of stricter emission regulations.

Vehicle deluge water-tightness test facilities today are equipped with digital components to meet the ever-increasing demands of the automobile industry. As a result, these companies are being pressed to innovate, strengthen their competencies, and achieve higher results.

The refrigerant in the air conditioning system, the transmission fluid in the torque converter of an automatic transmission, or the helium-argon mixture in the airbag inflator must not escape through leaks. In response to a growing demand for leak-proof components, stricter legislation may lead to stiffer tightness requirements.

The leak testing and leak detection are far from simple tasks. The choice of the appropriate test method must also be carefully considered. It hinges on many factors which method is most appropriate for a particular application. Integral testing on the production line is influenced by the sensitivity, as well as marginal leak rates and cycle times. At the same time, the repeatability and reliability of the testing process, along with capital expenditures and operating costs, should be considered.
