LEAK TESTING Leading solutions for your leak detection and integrity test challenges Why leak tests? Leak tests play an important role in our daily safety, environmental protection and the reliability of production processes and products of our daily lives. The application spectrum is diverse. A large part of the applications can be found in the automotive industry. Fuel, brake, cooling and airbag systems are just a few examples for the importance of reliable leak tests. In addition, refrigeration and air conditioning technology as well as packaging integrity in the medical, pharmaceutical...

LEAK DETECTION CHALLENGES From the definition of the requirements to the selection of the correct method to the execution of the test procedure Leakage rate requirements The selection of the optimal leak detection method often begins with the definition of the necessary tightness requirement. This is often stated in the refrigeration and air-conditioning technology in a mass loss per time, for example, „grams per year“ or „ounces per year“. Other industries describe a leak by its diameter in micrometer. Other common units are the SI-unit Pa · m³/s or mbar · l/s. The table opposite gives an...

LEAK TESTING WITH AIR: MICRO-FLOW OR MASS EXTRACTION Fast and reliable leak detection for packages and electronics as well as for industrial and medical applications Micro-Flow – The leading air leak testing technology The Micro-Flow technology measures the volume flow through a leak. If gas leaks out of the part to be tested, the equipment maintains a dynamic pressure balance by replenishing the gas flow. This gas flow is passed through the sensor and measured. The patented geometry of the sensor amplifies the signal and allows the measurement of very low leakage rates up to 5 · 10-4...

OPTICAL EMISSION SPECTROMETRY Integrity test for highly sensitive drug packaging and advanced sealed components The procedure The AMI by Pfeiffer Vacuum is particularly suitable for pharmaceutical applications with its optical emission spectroscopy. Reliable integrity of primary packaging of pharmaceuticals is of paramount importance to ensure sterility and prevent the ingress of microbiological substances, oxygen or moisture. No specific tracer gas is required for this patented procedure. Instead, the gas mixture present in the cavity of the packaging is used to perform highly sensitive...

LEAK DETECTION WITH TRACER GAS Highest sensitivity for leak detection in high-end applications, for example, in the automotive, medical and semiconductor industry The leak detection with tracer gases – in particular, helium leak detection – is still the commercially used test method with the lowest detection limit on the market. In addition to its high sensitivity, the leak detection with tracer gas offers additional advantages. It is non-destructive, of high repeatability, conforming to a variety of standards and faster than other methods. Additionally, the tracer gas detection can locate...
