It’s Not Just Hot Air…The New AURA Air Leak Testers Will Make Your Wildest Leak Testing Dreams Come True!

by LACO Technologies
Aura Multi-Test and Compact Air Leak Testers

LACO is Proud to Announce the Launch of our New AURA™ Air Leak Tester Product Line!

LACO’s AURA™ Air Leak Testers offer vacuum decay, pressure decay, differential pressure, mass flow, and mass flow differential leak test methods. They are ideal for manufacturers who require optimal uptime, test flexibility, accuracy, data logging, and quick results.

Air leak testing involves a family of several test methods including pressure decay, bubble immersion and mass flow using air as the test gas. These techniques are capable of measuring leakage outside-in or inside-out under vacuum or pressure conditions. Leakage is measured by creating a pressure differential across the test part and measuring the pressure rise or drop using a pressure transducer or the actual flow using a mass flow meter.

The new air leak testing line consists of an entry level unit called the AURA™ Compact (lacotech.com/leaktesting/aura-air-leak-testers-pressure-decay/aura-compact-air-leak-testers-pressure-decay.aspx)  and an advanced customizable unit called the AURA™ Multi-Test (lacotech.com/leaktesting/aura-air-leak-testers-pressure-decay/aura-multi-test-air-leak-testers-pressure-decay-va.aspx). The AURA™ product line has directly replaced the LT-3000 air leak tester which you may have been familiar with. We will continue supporting your existing LT-3000 units.

The AURA™ Compact is now part of LACO’s comprehensive leak testing instrument arsenal. It is ideal for the cost-conscious manufacturer who requires optimal uptime, test flexibility, accuracy, data logging, and quick results. The AURA™ Compact can be used in an array of industries for leak testing a diverse range of parts. Some examples of applications requiring air leak testing that the AURA™ Compact is best suited for include: Automotive applications (ABS valves & housing, ball bearings, brake pipes, catalytic converters, clutch casting, cylinder blocks, cylinder heads, exhaust recirculation valves, engine blocks, engine water cavities, engine oil cavities, exhaust manifolds, exhaust pipes, fuel caps, fuel filters, and more), and Medical applications (blood bags, dialyzers, filters, blood devices, blood filters, bottles and flasks, catch bags, catheters, cell cubes, centrifuges, coagulators, diagnostic devices, drug delivery systems, fiber optic scopes, spray bottles, sterile packaging, surgical equipment, syringes, vials and more).

Air leak testing has been a very popular leak test method for decades in many industries, but low cost instruments have fallen short in providing all the required features. The AURA™ Compact is now available, and delivers the most complete air leak testing solution available on the market.

Besides its unique sets of specifications, the AURA™ Compact can store over 5 million test results for QC analysis, and record tracking. This instrument is the long-awaited economical solution which manufacturers have been demanding. Not only can you now enjoy its flexibility and performance, but the built-in, ISO 17025 certified/NIST traceable calibrated leak standard with a lifetime warranty is the icing on the cake!

To demonstrate the AURA™ Compact’s performance capabilities; LACO Technologies welcomes customers to send in samples to run preliminary, and feasibility tests in our leak testing lab. We won’t just sell you a product, and walk away. We will be your leak testing partner, and give you peace of mind through our extensive application expertise.

If you are interested in more than just the leak test instrument, then we can offer you manual to fully automated custom systems to meet all levels of production volume.

To complement the market introduction of the AURA™ Compact, LACO Technologies is pleased to offer the following training seminars: “Leak Testing Theory and Practice” and “AURA™ Compact Operation and Maintenance”.
