We make sure the integrity of our welds is up to our customers’ standards.
Benefits of Helium Leak Testing
Helium is among the lightest and smallest of molecules, allowing it to penetrate small leaks quickly. The only smaller and lighter molecule is hydrogen; however, its flammable properties and tendency to be more expensive make helium the first choice for leak testing. In addition to being affordable and inflammable, helium is also non-toxic and non-reactive, which makes it very safe to use.
Helium Leak Test Process
Axenics uses a helium mass spectrometer to perform helium leak tests using one of two testing methods, depending upon the working conditions of the product being tested. Our Helium Leak Detection experts have been trained to ensure that the results of the test are read accurately. Axenics has two helium leak testing units at our facility. Our machines are maintained to manufactures specifications on an annual basis, in addition to weekly and monthly inspections and frequent calibration, performed in-house by our expert technicians to ensure they are functioning accurately.
