"LeakScanner SA" model range
Testing under atmospheric pressure
With atmospheric test chambers it is not necessary to evacuate air before the test process.
Test chambers of this construction type can be manufactured at significantly lower cost with a significantly larger volume than vacuum chambers. We build these chambers with a chamber volume of up to 50 m³ as standard. This allows for reliable testing of even larger units and assemblies.
However, we also recommend atmospheric testing when delicate, vacuum-sensitive components such as devices with touch screens need to be tested for their leak tightness.
This system configuration also allows the filling of the test objects with SF6 gas in the test chamber and subsequent recovery of the gas. However, with atmospheric pressure, the test duration is on average 10 - 30 times longer as the increase in concentration for atmospheric pressure is significantly lower.
