Integrated Leak Identification Station
Leak ID Station, LEAKID-Base
The integrated Leak Identification Station was designed to test your proto-type parts and/or secondary tests of failed parts on your production line and/or any lower volume leak tests. The Leak Identification Station is a fully automatic vacuum decay leak test, followed by a Helium backfill and fully integrated with the VIC MD-490S fully automatic helium leak detector specifically designed for sniffing applications. Leak Identification Station Includes the VIC Smart Charge III along with an MD-490S.
The Smart Charge lll offers fully automatic, custom configurable evacuation and gas backfill with built-in gross leak test that may be used to pre-charge products under test with gas for leak detection or for any gas charging application that requires evacuation and subsequent pressurization of a test product.
