Vacuum Instruments Corporation (VIC) offers a high-quality line of calibrated gas leaks traceable to National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST). Calibrated gas leaks are used to provide a controlled delivery of gases at a relatively low flow rate. Most leaks are available to ship within one week upon order, but many configurations are stocked and ready to ship.
The OM Series gas calibrator leaks utilize a precision tapered glass capillary as the leak element. Gases pass through a single orifice, with the leak rate dependent upon size and gas pressure. To prevent clogging of the fine orifice, a unique particle trap is located between the capillary tube and outlet fitting.
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.
