Custom Solution

Fully automated helium accumulation leak test system for satellite propulsion modules.  

Opportunity

A manufacturer of missile and airplane components required a turnkey leak test system with fully automated control of leak testing and calibration process. Customer required strictly-defined setup parameters and timers, with tight leak rate specifications, all within a programmable controller capable of 100% data logging. 

Result

We engineered a turnkey system with custom helium accumulation chamber with mixing fans and a PC-based, programmable controller with robust datalogging features.

Key Features

  • Custom engineered accumulation chamber with mixing fans
  • Helium mass spectrometer leak detector with sniffer probe integrated to chamber
  • PC-controlled system with datalogging
  • Integrated helium calibrated leak standard for calibration and verification
