The machine was designed to accept manually loaded moulded plastic parts and to leak test the inductance weld to ensure water did not leak through.

To test the parts at a differential pressure of 5 bar, a combination of external vacuum and internal test pressure was used, the maximum leak rate that was acceptable was 80mm3/sec.

The leak test facility used manual loading and unloading and achieved typically 120 parts per hour.
