Versaperm Vapour Permeability measurement

Solving the Solvent (Permeability) Problem

    Solving the Solvent Permeability Problem


Solvents are used by practically every industry, manufacturing plant, laboratory and development facility in the world.  The problem is that they are very good at getting into areas they shouldn't be in!  This is because the vapours that emanate from solvents can pass through virtually anything, including material barriers, before condensing on the other side.

Versaperm’s equipment can test this (vapour permeability) for any materials or product housings, as well as for seals, gaskets, grommets, O-rings and mastics - either using samples of the material, or the components themselves.  Many common solvents are hydrocarbon based and the Versaperm range has introduced specialist sensors for these. There is even a mass spectroscopy sensor which can individually measure every separate element in any solvent vapour with just a single measurement.

Solvent permeability has applications that range from aerospace through to general manufacturing, engineering, food production pharmaceutical and medical products.  Versaperm’s equipment provides fast, accurate measurements for all of them - usually in the PPB (parts per million range) to PPB ranges.  Measurements are both simple and computer-controlled and the systems can even measure several samples, seals, enclosures or products at a time. 

In addition to manufacturing the instruments, Versaperm provides a technical consultancy and a measurement/testing service for companies that only need testing on an irregular basis.
