Sciemetric Instruments has secured a patent for leak testing methods and systems from the US Patent and Trademark Office, covering the innovations contained in the 3520 Series leak test, which Sciemetric released in October 2014.

This flexible and intelligent system set a new standard for leak testing, by boosting the speed and accuracy at which leak tests can be carried out on the production line. Sciemetric began the lengthy process to patent many of the innovations contained in the 3520 during its development.

“For many companies that deliver leak testing products and services, it’s difficult to bring fresh thinking to the challenge,” said Richard Brine, Sciemetric’s, CTO.

“This is evident in the fact that we were able to cover 12 innovations in one patent, despite the supposed maturity of this technology area. We continuously invest in R&D to bring great new products to market.”
