Leak Testing for the Aerospace & the Aeronautics Industries
The aeronautics industry is one of the sectors where value added for each part is very important, this is the reason why our non-destructive Helium detection is perfect for your cutting-edge industry.
The air transport market is a global, economic reality and a dynamic industry. Despite the increase in oil price, and although energy currently accounts for 30% of airlines operating costs, flying remains accessible and the volume of flights continue to increase. This constant increase in the number of passengers and flights is requesting more and more planes and, as a consequence, more parts to control!
We are able to outperform leak detection system using Helium, H2 tracer gas, etc. in order to meet ever more stringent quality control requirements. This non-destructive leak testing method will ensure you a reliable, accurate and clean leak detection, regardless of the parts to be tested: engine parts, landing gear (shock absorbers, cylinders), braking (brake pistons, hoses), primary and secondary control systems.
Leak Testing for the Aircrafts Brakes Pistons
Aircrafts’ landing gear, particularly the brake system, is used extensively during braking. The disk brakes principle requires the use of pistons and cylinders that meet very high-quality requirements, particularly in terms of tightness.
Once actuated by the brake fluid, the moving part of the pistons comes into contact with the carbon disks enabling the aircraft to be stopped. This system could not function properly if it was not resistant.
For this purpose, Alliance Concept has developed a gas leak detection system using Helium, H2, etc. This dual station model enables the resistance of brake pistons to be controlled in its overall mode. This leak detection system was ingeniously designed around our Modul’He, a versatile standardized base equipment which can adapt to many projects.
A few technical data:
- Detection in global mode (chamber)
- Detection in sniffing mode
- Primary pumping of the chamber and the part
- Cycle time <180s
