Helium leak testing is used extensively in the power generation and chemical industries to locate leaks in even
the most complex pressure and vacuum systems.
are just a few examples of the most common uses:
Steam Turbine and Condenser -
Quickly locate even the smallest vacuum leaks on the low
pressure side of any steam turbine. Helium testing is widely
recognized as the superior alternative to the ultrasonic,
smoke, and our favorite, the shaving cream method of vacuum leak
testing steam turbine condensers.
Chemical and Plastics Production
- Oxygen and other contaminants entering through leaks in
flanges or broken welds can effect many manufacturing processes
and result in lower quality and efficiency or totally unusable
product. Leak testing of multi floor vacuum distillation towers,
reactors and associated plumbing and pumps is easily accomplished
utilizing helium leak testing.
- Leak testing large tubular heat exchangers can be expensive
and time consuming. With the helium leak testing method
thousands of tubes can be scanned in a short period of time when
compared to some of the other methods of
Buried Pipelines and
More - With helium leak testing we can locate leaks in
underground pipes to within a few feet keeping excavation to a
minimum. Due to the versatility of the helium leak testing method
virtually any pressure or vacuum system can be be tested with a
high degree of accuracy.
