If you use vacuum suction to create your product, you’ll understand just how important it is to ensure that you’re carrying out regular industrial vacuum testing to make sure you’re getting the best performance out of your appliances.

How does industrial vacuum testing work?
This process is employed to ensure that your hose assemblies and appliances are working to full capacity. With daily use, micro leaks start to form in ageing hoses and they will see loss of pressure. As you would expect your machinery won’t be working as efficiently which might use more energy or impact the quality of the final product. The result of this being that it causes more expense in the long run due to a loss in production as well as risking personal health. Unlike regular hose testing, industrial hose vacuum testing will often subject hose assemblies to any negative pressure reading down to a total vacuum state (-29.92inHg – inches of mercury).

Industries most commonly use vacuum in the forming of products and the transportation of raw ingredients in food and chemical processing. The most familiar household include bathtubs, sink units, open plastic containers and panels, food packaging and containers.

Who can do this?
You’ll need the help of a specialised team who have experience in identifying defects. More than a vacuum test alone you’ll need a team who can carry out a visual examination. Naturally, industrial hoses are exposed to high demands in sometimes, harsh conditions. Of course, some hoses will have a higher tolerance than others so knowing what kind of damage will impact performance or not is integral. A comprehensive solution is always best, ensuring the necessary actions will be carried out efficiently, whether it’s fitting, testing, inspection or cleaning.
