The evolution and expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) has allowed companies us to monitor and interact with their HVAC systems more than ever. As HVAC systems begin to incorporate this technology, it brings new challenges along the way. For example, HVAC systems with a self-regulation component involves additional sensors in the compressor. Therefore, the machines are more complex and have more parts to leak test during the assembly process.
Air-conditioning and refrigeration systems and their components must be checked for leaks in the assembly process.
Loss of refrigerant is not only critical for the product; it is hazardous to the environment. Therefore, we at Vacuum Instruments Corporation pride ourselves in helping our HVAC customers find even the smallest leaks quickly and easily.
A trace of hydrogen or helium with the nitrogen will enable leaks to be found at a lower pressure.
Many factors affect leakage:
The MD-490S is a leader among portable tracer gas leak detectors. With a response time less than 0.5 seconds, sensitivity to 10-8 direct reading atm-cc/sec, and the ability to zero-out background, this is the most aggressive portable leak detector in the industry. The MD-490S is fully integrateable with our SmartChargeIII Evacuation and Backfill Station.
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.
