Coming up with ways to quickly connect products to test instruments and still maintain leak-tight seals is a common challenge facing test engineers. Uson has released an application note describing how the use of Autocouples or Quick Connectors is an effective and reliable method of easily connecting a device or component to a leak tester.

Integrity testing by it’s very nature means connections must allow no leakage.Also, connecting products to the measuring instrument must be made in a way that can be controlled by the tester and not slow down the test operation.

Uson recommends using a line of sealing devices known as autocouples.These devices generate leak-tight seals on smooth tubes and    even on rough and irregular surfaces.

Because the seal is activated by air pressure, the tester can easily control the clamping.
