    at / with / under pressure - which preposition is correct?

    Hello again!

    When writing about various pressure tests, I often worry about which preposition to use.

    For example:

    The cooler was subjected to a leakage test under air pressure of .......

    The cooler was subjected to a leakage test with air pressure of .......

    The cooler was subjected to a leakage test at air pressure of .......

    What do you think?

    Thank you.

    I'd use 'under'.

    I think "at" would work also.
