LEAK & PIN-HOLE DECTECTOR “SPARK” TESTERS
Spark testers produce a high frequency spark that will arc approximately 1″ (25mm) to a conductive material. The main use of a spark tester is to identify and locate pin holes or leaks in molded containers and large molded tanks.
Detection of weaknesses in the coating when it is applied to a metal substrate can be determined by the use of the low-voltage sponge test or the high-voltage spark test for non-conductive coatings applied to electrically conductive substrates such as steel. Defects will be located when current flows between a probe and the conductive substrate, which is connected to the voltage source by a signal return cable.
