ATEQ is Available to Provide Consulting, Leak Testers For Medical Fittings, Valves and Connectors Testing Applications.

There are several types of medical fittings, valves and connectors used to connect medical devices and tubing together that require leak testing such as connector fittings, push-in fittings, quick-couplings, disconnects and luer fittings. These connectors come in various shapes, sizes and materials like Nylon, Kynar®, Polypropylene and metal. If these fittings do not connect properly to the medical devices, the devices will not perform efficiently and there could be deadly consequences-like a ventilator hose that has a loose connection to the machine so it does not supply the right amount oxygen to a patient.

Although medical fittings, connectors and valves are various shapes and sizes, generally the recommended leak test for medical fitting is to use a flow tester since the fittings typically connect a medical device to tubing. A flow test is preferred over a differential pressure decay test because the specifications for most fittings aren’t for them to be completely air-tight, but rather to allow a specified amount of air through the fitting’s two open ends.

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 fittings, catheters, pacemakers, or an automotive engine, ATEQ can work with you to provide efficient leak testers and develop integrated medical fittings production testing solutions.
