Leak test and flow test equipment "all in one"


A touch of innovation
The new T8997 leak tester was designed with the idea of combining two different types of measurement in a single instrument, making it suitable for leak tests and flow tests.
The new video controller “ForTest MMI” brought a superior level of human-machine interaction, thanks to an innovative capacitive panel in tempered glass, around a splendid 6.2” colour display.
Parameter programming is much faster thanks to the new numerical keyboard integrated in the menus, and the big display makes viewing even clearer of the test cycle.
The main screen also enables interaction with shortcut functions, such as test program change, "smart" test archive menu and locking/unlocking using a password.

Limitless connectivity.
The new T8997 equipment includes ports for the USB slave, RS232, RS485, Can bus, TTY, Profinet and EtherCAT. Assembly may also include an optional Ethernet port and a 26-pole connector with 4 inputs and 8 outputs, which are completely programmable, for interfacing with the external valves, safety barriers, switches, etc...
The front panel has a master USB port assembled on it for connection to a USB key to save the tests conducted, backup/restore parameters and upgrade tool firmware.
The connection to thermal printers, barcode/data-matrix readers and markers takes place automatically using an internal menu.

Always better measurements.
T8997 contains two different technologies, the measure with absolute pressure drop and mass. The first one is suitable for the detection of micro losses, while the second one is created for the flow test.
This instrument is suitable for tests in the GAS sector (gas ramps, injectors) and medical (bags, lters, etc ...).
The two measurements work individually and not simultaneously, and it is possible to program automatic sequences directly from the instrument panel.

The test cycle was further accelerated thanks to processor and coprocessor interaction, maintaining the reliability that has always made ForTest unique.
We can say with certainty that T8997 avails of the most advanced measurement section in the world, thanks to the centring technology in windows and the double Faraday optical-isolated cage, which reduces the settling times under 18 ms.
This gives a real measurement resolution of 0.1 Pa at 1 bar (0.5 Pa at 6 bar), stable and noise-free.

Built-in processor and coprocessor Centring technology in windows Resolution from 0.1 Pa

Optimised pneumatic section.
Assembly of the latest generation solenoid valves has enabled a 30% increase in the filling speed compared to the previous model, maintaining reliability unaltered over time. Our tools do not require expensive maintenance in the pneumatic department. Actually, our objective is to make them increasingly reliable and long-lasting.
Filling speed +30% High strength against humidity No periodic maintenance

Innovative design.
What appears to be a simple design exercise, in fact hides an in-depth study to make use and understanding of the tool as simple as possible.
The front panel is made of a single sheet of tempered glass and aluminium, which makes it extremely easy to clean, making the T8997 suitable for use in the laboratory and on the production line.
The extensive internal menus are easy to understand and the graphic interface was designed to only display important information.
Everything is exactly where it should be.

User-friendly interface Easy to clean Use in sectors at 360°
