Importance and Benefits of Leak Testing
The experts at Applied Technical Services are some of the best when it comes to Helium Leak Testing. They use this method to detect very small leaks in all sorts of components where a differential pressure can be generated. Our technicians then report the helium leak as a quantitative measurement, giving clients a sense of how significant the leak is. Helium leak testing can also be used to identify the location of very small leaks.
Clients may request helium leak testing to assess the performance of a material or to analyze or evaluate component longevity. Helium is the preferred leak testing medium because technicians can detect and measure it at minute leak rates (less than 1 cubic centimeter/300 years) and because the gas is inert, meaning it will not react with most components being tested.
