ATEQ is Available to Provide Consulting, Leak Testers For Condom Testing Applications.
When it comes to a manufacturer’s decision if it needs to add leak testing as a quality control test on the production line, one of the major deciding factors is the consequence of a faulty product. A condom may be an inexpensive, disposable medical product but it is essential that condoms do not leak. While a faulty condom with a tiny pinhole leak or a weak spot in the latex may not be the difference between life and death, a leaking condom can cause unwanted pregnancy or STDs.
How to leak test a condom during production can be a different process than many of ATEQ’s typical leak detection methods due to its flexible material. One method could be an air burst leak test where a random batch sample of condoms is tested to see if they can contain a specified minimum amount of air pressure and volume without breaking. ATEQ also offers an ioniq leak tester that is good for testing non-metal products at a fast speed by using electricity to find any thin vulnerable areas that may not be as insulted as the requirements designate.
Besides testing the actual condom itself, the condom inside the sealed packaging also should be leak tested to make sure air can not get into the package and hinder the integrity of the condom. This type of condom leak testing is typically done by a random sample vacuum leak test.
ATEQ has developed solutions for hundreds of different medical leak testing applications for well known medical manufacturers over the last 40 years. Whether you are leak testing condoms, catheters, pacemakers, or an automotive engine, ATEQ can work with you to provide efficient leak testers and develop integrated condom production testing solutions.
