Leak Testing: Helium Leak Testing Methods

TQC provide helium leak testing solutions for all types of components. 

A Guide to the Fundamentals of Helium Leak Testing outlines what helium leak testing is and the benefits of using it.

Helium leak testing is generally used for specifications which are too stringent for pressure decay, or where the component is large in volume or not stable in shape or temperature. The leak measurement resolution may be typically 1 x 10-6 atm.mm3/sec

Comparing Leak Testing Methods, Helium Leak Testing features are –

  • Most sensitive (1 x 10-6)
  • Independent of temperature
  • Independent of volume
  • High throughput
  • Most expensive
  • Most complex
