Leak detection equipment
Selecting the right equipment for your leak detection purposes starts with a little insight in the different types of equipment. In general you can choose from a portable leak detector or a leak detection station. The next choice to be made is either a helium and hydrogen leak detector or a refrigerant gases leak detector. Whatever suites your purpose. The best way of selecting the right equipment is to consult your dealer or have the parts to be tested examined and tested in a leak test centre. For incidental testing, leak detection equipment can be rented.
Most leak detection equipment supports two measurement methods: Pressure measurement and Vacuum measurement. Both these methods mostly use differential pressure and can measure the pressure decay or increase. The third measurement method is Flow measurement where the volumetric flow rate and mass flow rate can be measured.
