7.2 Leak detection with tracer gases

Pfeiffer Vacuum uses leak detectors based upon mass spectrometers and quartz window sensors to detect the presence of tracer gases. Mass spectrometers ionize a gas mixture and isolate the desired tracer gas on the basis of their mass-to-charge ratio. Quartz window sensors are based on the selective permeation of light gases through a quartz membrane.
