Pneumatic Cylinder testing for leaks

  1. Mar 17, 2015 #1

    Excuse the ignorance of an electronic engineer here but is there a procedure/tool to measure for leaks in pneumatic cylinders? One that will give a percise reading, ie. 30% pressure loss in a cylinder. This is not an automobile qusetion and not a combustible engine leak down test just a simple liner pneumatic cylinder. Thanks in advance.
