What Is Helium Leak Detection?
Helium is a tracer gas that is non-toxic, non-flammable, non-condensable, inert and usually only present in the atmosphere in trace amounts. It is effective for several types of leak detection because it can pass through the leaks easily due to its size. The detector used for helium leak detection is called a mass spectrometer leak detector, and it is used to find and measure leaks in a system or device.
Helium leak detection is useful for finding leaks in many places, such as:
- Vacuum vessels
- Hermetically sealed packages
- Brake lines
- Fuel lines
- High purity piping
- Hydraulic lines
- Heat exchangers
- Storage tanks
Helium leak detection can be used in vacuum systems including vacuum furnaces, electron microscopes, semiconductor process equipment, laser process equipment, and glove boxes. Using this particular gas to detect such a wide range of leaks has proven an effective and efficient way to get the job done.
