Helium is the best tracer gas for many reasons. Helium is an inert gas, is not flammable, and non-toxic. The helium atom is tiny and will pass through the most minor leaks and can be detected by mass spectrometers.
Helium Leak detection
Helium leak detection is a process used to measure the size of cracks, holes, and leaks in the product or system being tested. A leak detector (also known as a mass spectrometer or MSLD) is used to conduct the testing. The Mass Spectrometer pumps out the atmosphere in the test piece or the vacuum chamber, creating negative pressure. After introducing the helium to the test piece, the tracer gas will travel through the imperfection, and the leak detector will read the size of the leak.
Helium Leak Detection Applications
Production parts and assemblies using helium leak detectors can help ensure the integrity of your production process.
Examples include hermetically sealed packages, valves, manifolds, seals, vacuum vessels & systems, medical devices, high purity piping, brake lines, fuel lines, hydraulic lines, refrigeration assemblies, radiators, heat exchangers, condensers, and storage tanks.
Our TVACs are designed for performance and reliability and can be built
to meet your testing needs
Industrial process tools that use vacuum systems or pressure systems must be tested to check for occasional leaks. This can be part of preventative maintenance or in the event of an unexpected failure.
Examples of vacuum systems include vacuum furnaces, vacuum coaters, electron microscopes, glove boxes, linear accelerators, electron beam and ion beam process equipment, semiconductor process equipment, laser process equipment.
Examples of pressurized systems include Power plants, gas handling systems, bioreactors, liquid gas facilities, underground tanks, underground cables, and pipes.
