ATEQ USA’s products are in frequent use for leak detection in medical devices.  End users require a high-degree of confidence in such products as they are often used to deliver or extract fluids to or from a specific part of the body.  If a leak existed, then fluids could be inadvertently sent to the incorrect location, or the wrong fluids could be removed.  Either circumstance can result in dangerous consequences, and expose hazardous situations to healthcare professionals and patients.  Ultimately, manufacturers can be held liable for the failures of their products.  Therefore, having a robust testing methodology can minimize these risks by identifying components that don’t meet established production standards.

Medical device manufacturers continue to increase the expectations of their quality standards in order to decrease and minimize risk.  Therefore, leak detection in medical devices is of the utmost importance.  ATEQ’s products are able to meet these demands.  For example, the Hydra Silver, Four Channel Leak Tester,  allows for up to four separate channels of testing.   Each leak test channel its own leak test transducer with less than 1.5 cc of internal volume.

Our products can be used in a manual or automated environment, and have secure features which limit who has access to entering and altering the testing parameters.  ATEQ appreciates that when performing leak detection in medical devices, this may often include testing every single production piece.  ATEQ’s leak detection equipment is built for high capacity testing, and includes quick access to calibrated leaks to verify that testing is progressing as expected.

Below are some examples of products where ATEQ’s products are used today in leak detection.  Our sales application engineers are experts, so if you have a need for precise testing, contact us today!
