ATEQ is Available to Provide Consulting, Leak Testers and Flow Meters For Faucet Testing Applications.

There are several types of faucets. A ball faucet is a commonly used in kitchens and does not contain a washer but has a single handle that moves a ball inside the faucet to control the flow of water. Two handle cartridge faucets use a twistable knob to control a movable stem cartridge that moves up and down to control the water flow. The newer ceramic disc faucet design uses a wide cylindrical body topped with a single lever. Inside is a pressure balance cartridge that is a mixing chamber for hot and cold water. The disc at the bottom of the chamber moves up and down to control the flow and side to side handle rotation controls the temperature.  Finally, the older two rotating handle compression washer faucets, commonly used in utility sinks, are inexpensive but leak prone due to the wearing out of washers.

ATEQ has developed solutions for hundreds of different faucet leak and flow testing applications for well known appliance companies over the last 40 years.  Whether you are leak testing kitchen, bathroom or utility faucets, ATEQ can work with you to provide efficient leak or flow testers for faucets and develop integrated faucet production testing solutions.

An example of specifications for leak testing a kitchen faucet would be to use a pressure decay tester like the Primus F620 or F28+ leak testing instruments with a pressure testing specification range of 50 to 80 psi, leak rate spec range of 1 cc/min and a test time of 10 seconds.
