Versaperm Vapour Permeability measurement

Hot squashed Enclosures and Tubes

Permeability of enclosures and tubes

So, how does temperature and pressure effect containers and tubes?  Well, it can dramatically change the rate at which gases permeate or leak out.  It can also allow a lot more contaminants to seep in.   This directly affects their performance.  Vapours can pass directly through the very materials the items from which the items are made.   The gas flow is called Vapour Permeability and Versaperm equipment is designed to help control it.

Versaperm’s vapour permeability systems measure how well the tubes, containers, seals or joints work under environmental changes. It can control a very wide range of temperatures and pressures – from -80 to +1100C and from 0-300bar.

Not only that but it can measure this permeability for virtually every gas, or gaseous compound. This gives designers and manufacturers the ability to test, and effectively eliminate, problems across almost all standard and most non-standard environmental and operational conditions.

The system can also simulate diurnal, seasonal and other changes.

The Versaperm equipment achieves results that are accurate in the PPM (Parts per Million) to PPB ranges.  It can optionally measure several samples, seals, enclosures or products at a single time. 

The company also runs consultancy and laboratory services that offer advice on complex cases or where the volume or logistics do not mandate a dedicated instrument.
