ATEQ is Available to Provide Consulting and Leak Testers For Kettle Leak Testing Applications.
There are several different types of kettles used for heating up liquids. There are electric kettles and stove kettles. Which can be made out of stainless steel, cast iron or copper. Basic stove kettles simply heat up from the stove, electric kettles have a plug and buttons and dials to control the heat. There are even kettles now that use smart technology and are controlled by a smartphone app. No matter what type of kettle is manufactured, all kettles require leak testing to keep the hot liquids safe inside the container. Electric kettles especially require leak testing since electric components are involved.
Electric components within an electric kettle should be leak tested as they are manufactured to make sure they are air tight so liquid and moisture does not short out the electricity. In general, typically kettles are leak tested after final assembly using an indirect leak test which means that it is tested inside a chamber. The benefits of indirect leak testing are a reduced volume, very low pressure and a fast cycle time. The leak testing instrument will measure a pressure rise. If there is a leak at the outlet of the kettle, the pressure will rise in the chamber
