There are occasions when a failing seal is not too much of a problem, but there are also mission-critical occasions when they must not fail – and every stage between the two.  In all of these cases seals, O-rings, mastics & enclosures are designed to keep things either in, or out – usually water, grease, CO2, oil or solvents.  The way to ensure this happens is where Versaperm comes in.

Versaperm has a range of permeability testing instrumentation to help companies accurately test and measure seals and enclosures – including individual seals, material samples and even finished units. In many cases it takes just 30 minutes to achieve results in the Parts per Million (PPM) range.  This allows designers and manufacturers to specify materials that bypass problems and it also enables QC departments to investigate new materials as well as check both incoming and outgoing products.

Using products with the wrong permeability causes seals to leak, electronics to fail, and mechanical systems to jam or rust! 

Versaperm's latest instrument and specialised sensor range can measure permeability for virtually any gas or vapour used by industry, including oxygen, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons, helium and nitrogen.  The system can measure several samples, seals, enclosures or products at a time and can be configured to measure permeability with respect to water vapour as well as most other gases. 

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