About This Webinar
There are several technologies used to locate and/or measure leaks. Each may have advantages in terms of cost, sensitivity, repeatability, or ease of application. In this webinar, Agilent Technologies will look at several and focus primarily on helium mass spectrometer leak detection. Helium used as a tracer gas readily and rapidly finds leak paths and can be detected quickly and reliably by a mass spectrometer. Helium mass spectrometry provides a rapid, sensitive, and reliable way to locate or precisely measure leaks that affect the quality or longevity of a very wide range of parts and systems.

In this webinar, you will learn: 
  • The advantages and disadvantages of various leak detection technologies.
  • The different methods of locating leaks and determining leak rate, and which to employ for the product or system you need to test.
  • The advantages of helium tracer gas leak detection.
Specific topics covered:
  • What do different leak rates mean? Are there industry standards for leak testing?
  • What is the inside-out test method?
  • How do I introduce helium into my part?
    • During assembly.
    • Post-sealing (bombing).
  • What type of test fixture is used?
  • Testing do’s and don’ts.
  • Benefits of nitrogen venting.
  • What is a verification leak and how does it mistake-proof your test?

There will be ample time for attendees to ask questions.
