FasTest Partners With Leading Diesel Engines Manufacturer to Improve Leak Testing Process

FasTest Introduces Quick Connector for Large Diameter Ports

FasTest, Inc., the industry leader in standard and customized quick connectors for leak and pressure testing has partnered with a leading global manufacturer of big bore diesel engines to design a new quick connector ideal for large diameter ports. FasTest worked with the customer to modify a standard FI Series connector by adding a unique collet design to improve internal gripping on the test piece.

Customer Need

The customer required a leak-tight connection to a 2-inch rough cast port on the coolant inlet and outlet ports of a big bore diesel engine. The air test was being conducted at 20 psi. Previously, the customer was using a rubber hose and a screw clamp to affix the hose to a coolant intake port. This process was very time consuming and often resulted in blow offs, putting operators at risk of injury.

FasTest Introduces Updated Connection Verification System

FasTest Adds M8 Termination Option and Introduces New Calibration Tool

Minneapolis, MN—May 1, 2017—FasTest, Inc. introduces the latest generation of its Connection Verification™ technology for its industry leading pneumatically actuated FE Series and FI Series quick connectors. FE+ and FI+ Connection Verification enabled quick connectors utilize an embedded, high-resolution sensor to signal when the connector has properly actuated. This unique technology improves leak testing efficiency by reducing the number of failed tests due to improper connections caused by a variety of common problems, including operator placement or even worn seals. Connection Verification technology improves safety and efficiency in automated, semi-automated or manual leak test stations. “Connection Verification was specifically designed to eliminate waste caused by unidentified connection failures during leak tests,” said Dustin Sirny, Product Development Manager. “By enabling operators to pinpoint a failed connection prior to running a leak test, we are able to eliminate diagnostic time and the associated costs.”
