Fundamentals of Leak Detection - The Complete Guide


Executive Summary

Unwanted leaks in any system can easily damage expensive equipment and machinery reducing the effectiveness of the process. The primary reasons for helium leak testing are quality, reliability, personnel protection, and protecting the environment. 

Unforeseen issues like vacuum leaks can become catastrophic for vacuum operations, operators, and the environment. It is therefore crucial to develop a mitigation plan ahead of these events so vacuum levels can be restored as quickly as possible.
