The KaMOS® test method is based on pressurizing the annular space above and below the seal ring using test gas.
If no pressure loss is recorded during this pressurization, the seal is deemed tight.
The test medium that is applied to the annular space is applied by using KaMOS® Test Equipment (containing a reservoir, a manometer and hoses), a simple portable test equipment. The KaMOS® Test Equipment is easy to handle and will make it possible to leaktest flanges on a one-off basis without pressurizing entire systems.
The KaMOS® test system will also check the primary and secondary sides of the seal for tightness. Other leak testing methods that are used today cannot distinguish these two sides, only if it is tight or not.
