InterTech Development Expands Leak Testing Department

SKOKIE, IL - Responding to the requirements of U.S. and worldwide automakers to speed time-to-market for hybrid vehicle designs, InterTech Development Co. announces an expansion of its Chicago-Detroit Applications Engineering Team that designs high gage R&R turnkey leak test solutions.

Applying best-match leak test technology as required-pressure leak testing, differential pressure decay leak testing, mass flow leak testing in either downstream or upstream leak test configurations, and helium leak testing-InterTech Development Co.’s applications engineering department combines custom leak test sensors with fixture design requirements for hybrid vehicle components.

Jacques Hoffmann, president of InterTech Development Co., comments, “Given the costs of helium leak testing there has especially been a recent interest in InterTech’s custom mass flow sensors and other patented technology that enables us to get accurate leak test results in applications that would otherwise be done with prohibitively expensive and cumbersome helium mass spectrometers. We work with automotive manufacturers worldwide-both for hybrid vehicles and traditional automobiles, among many others with demanding leak test applications. Our sole focus on developing test technology for more than four decades helps us keep our customers competitive and ensures that their globally-distributed manufacturing processes up to top quality standards.”
