Portable leak finder

August 14, 2007
A portable leak finder is available for locating small leaks in chambers, connections or parts. The unit has a rechargeable container for helium gas with a spray nozzle similar to an aerosol can. Helium is sprayed on the suspected leak location of a part or chamber and can then be observed on a mass spectrometer system that continuously measures the helium concentration in the part while under vacuum. A leak is immediately identified if the vacuum inside draws helium into the part or chamber. The kit includes a recharge fitting and comes in a protective, custom-made carrying case. Integral to this fitting are valves, pressure gage and pressure relief valve to allow safe recharging of the canister.
