Military, Aerospace & Defense

Military, Aerospace and Defense are all associated with mission critical products.  That is why Defense contractors employs some of the strictest testing regulations of any sector. Leak detection testing is one of the techniques used to confirm the integrity of essential parts and components during assembly.

Leaks are never a good thing, and worse is that everything leaks, but leaks do not at the leak at the same rate.  A check for leaks is to make sure nothing leaks out or leaks into the part where the product could be damaged.  Certain products only need to be water tight for short period of certain time.  Others need to be tested to a low leak rate because they need to continuously operate for a decade or longer.  Vacuum Instrument Corporation has over 60 years of experience in designing and building testing solutions for the most demanding and mission critical applications.  

Customers in aerospace and military utilize VIC leak detectors in laser-based range finders on fighter planes and tanks to pinpoint targets. We also specialize in leak detection components for avionics, which are the electrical systems used on planes, satellites, and spacecraft. Other defense uses for VIC leak detectors include shielding low-altitude planes from rocket launchers. We ensure that the laser system that detects inbound heat-seeking missiles is hermetically sealed. These devices operate by changing the thermal signature of the aircraft, causing smart rockets fired by terrorists to miss their target. Maintaining the integrity of these items' packaging is critical to defending our nation and keeping you safe.

The founders of VIC were part of the development of the first leak testers ever made as part of the Manhattan Project.  As the only Helium Leak Test supplier that qualifies for Made in America, our dedication to the military industry continues today. VIC products meet MIL-STD-1441, MIL-STD-883k methods and other.

Argon Leak Tester

Some leak test applications cannot utilize Helium as a tracer gas, but users will want the benefits of leak testing with an inert gas. Argon has proven to be a very effective tracer gas, but because 1% of the atmosphere is comprised of Argon there are challenges with using VIC. VIC customers have been using our Argon leak testers for over 20 years because VIC produces the only leak tester designed specifically for leak testing with Argon.

 

Intrepid

Many components are too large to be tested with a benchtop unit with a Bell Jar or Test Cup. VIC created the Intrepid series of Custom Leak testers to address the needs of Military contractors in leak testing large subassemblies and final assemblies in a leak test system. The Intrepid line of leak test systems can; i) utilize Helium or Argon, ii) accommodate even the largest of parts and iii) support a variety of leak test methods, including but not limited to; Under Vacuum Leak Detection, Evacuation and Helium Spray, etc.

 

Leak Tester, Bombing Station and Test Cups

Many Hermetically sealed electronics and components require users of leak testing these parts to “bomb” the test part with an overpressure of Helium for a specified time and then place the test part within a test cup or under a bell jar where the helium leak tester measures the leak rate of helium escaping the bombed test part. VIC also makes operator training easier with our Ultra Fast Test (UFT) option whereby operators can automatically cycle start the leak test machine when closing the lid. VIC manufactures all our Bombing Stations and Test Cups to meet any test product size.

 

Leak Testing Suite

Build-a-Test Suite: VIC is the only Leak Test supplier that manufactures in the USA a complete line of modules needed for any Leak Test application including;

  • Leak Testers
  • Bombing Stations,
  • Test Cups or Bell Jar with Pedestal

VIC also makes operator training easier with our Ultra-Fast Test (UFT) option whereby operators can automatically cycle start the leak test machine when closing the lid. Testing is also available for Helium and Argon.
