  • Designed for performing pre-shipment leakage tests to ISO 12807 and ANSI N14.5
  • Particularly suitable for measuring and calculating the leakage rate of double O-ring seal closure arrangements typically present on transport packages for radioactive materials
  • Measures leakage rate and provides a detailed print-out of the test parameters and results as a Standardised Leakage Rate (SLR) / Reference Air Leakage Rate

New Features

  • Touch screen interface
  • 8-inch colour screen
  • IP67 case
  • CE and FCC marking
  • Impact and vibration tested
  • Easy reboot
  • Combined measure volume and leakage test if required
  • Test history saved for future print outs
  • Automatic parameter testing

Customers familiar with the CALT9 operation will be fully conversant with the CALT10, as the testing principles and the test procedure remain unchanged.  The CALT9 will continue to be supported for spares, maintenance and calibration


  • Designed for ease of operation within safety critical environments. Fail-safe operation provided by the internal computer, which displays a series of screen prompts; leading the operator through the leakage testing procedure in a simple and comprehensive manner
  • All calculations are made by the computer, eliminating potential user calculation error. Full test details and results printed out automatically at the end of test, providing a hard copy data set for operational quality control
  • CALT10 utilises pressure drop / pressure rise method to provide a quantitative result of leakage rate. The software automatically corrects for the change in dynamic viscosity of air which varies with temperature and converts the measured leakage rate into Standardised Leakage Rate (SLR) / Reference Air Leakage Rate

Menu Options

The CALT software has five main options:

  • Leakage Test – Pressure drop or Pressure rise
  • Measure Volume – The volume of the interspace must be known or measured before leakage testing can be carried out
  • Print-Out – Prints out the last test performed or stored tests
  • Gauge – Pressure / temperature gauge with or without a print-out
  • Utilities:
    • Password
    • Calibration
    • Pressure rise or drop
    • Standard (ISO or ANSI)
    • Username to appear on print-out
    • Set system clock and date
