Know Your Leaks

Where safety and operating costs are paramount, even one leak in a system is too many. When maintaining fluid systems, remember:

  • Making highly reliable metal-to-metal seals is a difficult task—follow manufacturer guidelines precisely
  • Leaks occur most often in valves and connectors because they are the most prevalent components in facilities
  • A good leak detection program increases worker safety and decreases risks to your operation

Types of Leaks

Real leak

When a pressure barrier fails to contain or isolate a system fluid from the surrounding environment (result of cracks or gaps between sealing surfaces or permeation through seal materials).

Virtual leak

A release of internally trapped fluid into a fluid system due to material outgassing (escape of gas from a material under test in a vacuum), absorbed or adsorbed fluids, entrapment in cracks, or deadlegs.


The passage of fluid into, through, and out of a pressure barrier having no holes large enough to permit more than a small fraction of the molecules to pass through any one hole.
