Vacuum Testing to Prevent Product Failure – Part 1

Posted: Aug 01, 2018
Product failure can be catastrophic, especially in circumstances when lives are at stake. Transportation at high altitudes can alter the pressure of sealed products, and this pressure changes significantly with every flight. These pressure changes can damage gaskets, potentially exposing parts to humidity and contaminants that can alter performance. In addition, many electronics depend on the normal insulating properties of standard air pressure to avoid short circuits in components. High altitude conditions remove that air and corresponding electrical insulation thus creating short circuits and critical component failures that otherwise would not be experienced at normal site pressures found near the
