Vacuum Box Testing – VBT

Vacuum Box Testing is a non-destructive testing method that is used to locate weld seam leaks. Vacuum Box Testing uses a vacuum box and compressor to create high- or low-pressure vacuum while a detergent solution is applied to test the area. The detergent creates bubbles when a leak has been located. Vacuum Box Testing is primarily used with tank floors, ERW seamed pipe in pipelines, pressure vessels, and welds.
