Dual Station Cylinder Head Leak Test System

This specialized dual station leak test system was designed to test front and rear engine cylinder heads to ensure the castings meet manufacturer specifications. Both test stations function the same way, with custom part fixtures and part clamping and sealing supports that allow parts to be tested independently or simultaneously. CTS’ dual station cylinder head leak test system tests “as cast” parts with air checking for flow (blockage) and cavity leakage. This pneumatically operated device provides automated part clamping and sealing along with semi-automatic operation—once test parts are manually loaded and the system is activated, the system can complete the part testing with no operator intervention. Parts are automatically shuttled to the test position, clamped, and sealed to isolate the test cavity. The actual leak test is then initiated, utilizing one of our Sentinel I28 test instruments. Status lights provide pass/fail/test malfunction reporting. When testing is finished, parts are returned to the load position. Cycle time is approximately 42 seconds.
