The PICO Vacuum Helium Leak Detector
The MKS PICO Helium leak detector is designed for patented mass spectrometry and leading vacuum technology. It is an integral vacuum system using turbo or scroll pump. Helium, an excellent gas commonly used for checking leaks, is the tracer gas used. This detector is considered to be the smallest in size in the world.
It is also the lightest, weighing 17 pounds. This portable helium detector is the most compact, fast, and contamination-free. Because of its small size and unique design, it significantly reduces start-up, response and clean-up time. Leak detection is done with a minimum detectable leak rate of 1 x 10-10 atm-cc/s. The historical leak rate reading is being displayed while testing.
This leak detector’s rugged design is used both for usual and for demanding applications. For leak detection, it uses the principle of mass spectrometry using a self-protected turbo pump. Anyone can do its operation since it is extremely simple to operate. Its hand-held display is removable.
The PICO Vacuum portable helium detector enhances productivity yield in several industries such as in production of semiconductors, in air-conditioning and refrigeration, in automotive, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and many others.
Typically, the use of a helium leak detector is to locate leaks, seeping or drips in a product or system. The measurements are generally performed in two ways, either by vacuum or sniffing, this detector utilizes the vacuum testing. Vacuum measurement is done by connecting the leak detector to the vacuum system, carrying of the system to the suspect area is needed where helium is then sprayed. There is a leak confirmed if helium is detected. The conventional and traditional helium leak detectors are bulky, very heavy and require cumbersome carts to move them throughout the workplace.
This is the perfect lightweight detector for the job. It can be easily transported and is fully operational in the most tightly-confined working environments. There is no danger of damaging the apparatus because the design of this detector also includes self-protection features that safeguards itself and the instrument from damage in harsh environments. It is the best helium detector because it is lightweight, truly portable, reliable and sensitive for accurate and trouble-free measurement.
