Leak Detection Technologies
Of all instruments used for leak detection, the VIC tracer gas sensitive mass spectrometer leak detector is the most sensitive and most accurate device. It is easily calibrated, requires no operator judgement and its use is non-destructive to the test object.
Benefits of VIC Mass Spectrometer Leak Detection Over Other Testing Techniques
VIC testing is not affected by typical manufacturing background noise levels whereas Ultrasonic stability is greatly changed
VIC testing non-dependent on operator judgement whereas Water Immersion is dependent on operator training and variance
VIC testing is unaffected by temperature changes whereas Thermoconductivity outputs change greatly to temperature fluctuations
VIC testing is tracer gas specific and unaffected by other gases whereas Halogen sensors become contaminated and react to gases in the area
VIC detection limits not as susceptible to variations of the cleanliness of the vacuum system whereas Residual Gas Analyzers sensitivity ranges are greatly reduced
A standardized solution for thermal leak testing equipment. Specifically designed for thermal leak detection applications. The Scepter is complete and in stock. We offer this concept for fast delivery of a custom system. The Scepter upon customer order would require custom tooling which is placed inside the chamber(s) to complete the system. The Scepter is offered as a single, dual or IHX configuration.
Custom solutions for medical device leak testing equipment. Methods of leak detection used by medical device manufacturers are evolving to meet increasingly stringent quality standards. Testing for leak integrity is critical in the device industry because product failure presents significant hazards to patients and healthcare professionals and liabilities for manufacturers.
Solutions for automotive power delivery leak testing. Combustion engine parts are critical in the Automotive Industry assembly process. To ensure these parts perform as designed they must be leak tested to ensure internal volume integrity.
Solutions for automotive thermal applications. VIC offers custom leak detection solutions with custom tooling placed inside the chamber(s) design to meet your thermal leak testing requirements. Our custom solutions offer leak testing for various types of thermal applications, such as Radiators, Condenser/Combo Coolers, Charge Air Coolers (CAC)/ Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) with multiple leak rates and sensitivity ranges. Custom solutions are offered in single, dual or IHX configuration.
Model No. Automotive Thermal Application Solutions
Whether it’s in response to soaring gas prices or global warming, more and more people are looking into fuel-efficient, cleaner-running cars, such as hybrid electric vehicles and fully electric vehicles. Just like with fuel rails and other automotive components that require leak testing battery assemblies, covers and trays are tested with a helium hard-vacuum system.
Model No. Automotive Electric-Hybrid Vehicle Solutions
VIC offers custom leak detection solutions to meet your automotive drive train testing requirements. Parts of the automotive chassis that were once made from single sheets of metal are now often multiple injection modeled pieces of plastic coming together to form a single part. Leak testing is necessary to ensure that rain or other moisture does not enter the vehicle through the many connection points of the multiple parts. Our custom solutions offer leak testing for various types of drive train applications, such as torque converters and clutches with multiple leak rates and sensitivity ranges.
A multipurpose system designed to perform a vacuum decay leak test, followed by a Helium backfill and fully integrated with the VIC MD-490S automatic helium leak detector specifically designed for sniffing applications.
Vacuum Instruments Corporation is a pioneer in providing state-of-the-art leak detection solutions for diverse applications and industries. Our systems have ensured the safety and performance of countless products that we use in our daily lives from the cars we drive to the air conditioners in our houses, the pacemakers in our bodies, and the satellites we launch into space.
