Vacuum Instruments Corporation is one of the world’s largest companies devoted solely to the research, design, manufacture, distribution, and service of leak detectors, gas handling equipment, and complete leak detection solutions. VIC is the only company in North America to offer both organically manufactured instruments and custom systems for tracer gas and air leak tests as well as gas management. VIC’s staff of engineers, system design personnel and applications specialists constitute the most experienced body of leak detection experts in the world.
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.
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 product 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 fuel delivery leak testing equipment. Leak testing requirements for fuel system components have been lenient (0-2 cc/sec). Amendments to the EPA Clean Air Act and the California Air Resources Board have imposed evaporative vehicle emission standards resulting in a more stringent leak test requirement. To fulfill these test requirements, VIC has developed ultra-sensitive mass spectrometer methods to leak test fuel system components, including fuel tanks, tube and flange and fuel rail assemblies.
Solutions for automotive fuel rails leak testing equipment. Fuel rails need to be tested for leaks during component production at a supplier level to prevent leakage in the engine compartment. High-pressure, direct-injection fuel rails have a maximum allowable leak rate spec of 10-4 atmospheric cubic centimeters per second (Atm-cc/sec). Leak testing fuel rails with tracer gas, often with the fuel injectors installed, in a vacuum chamber is a common process.
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.
