Pfeiffer Vacuum

Helium Leak Detection in Theory and Practice

Overview
Target audience:Users, operating and maintenance personnel
Prior knowledge:Fundamental knowledge of vacuum technology
Learning objective:The participants will learn the fundamentals of helium leak detection and its practical application. They can systematically check vacuum systems or vacuum units for leaks and acquire the theoretical and practical skills for the operation of systems in serial testing.
Course content:Fundamentals
• Terms and definitions in the field of leak detection technology
• Why helium as tracer gas?
• How do detectors and devices work?
• Physical principles and calculation examples
• Methods of helium leak detection
a) at atmospheric pressure (sniffing, accumulation method)
b) under vacuum (helium spraying, integral and partial vacuum method)
Additionally in 3-day-course:
• Exemplary calculations of leakage rates as a function of flow through the leak, operating- and test-medium, pressure, temperature
• How do I create a practical specification?
• Practical application of helium leak detection tasks in different areas (coating systems, large-scale research, heat exchanger)
• Use of different test gases in leak detection
Applications
• Presentation of selected test methods according to DIN EN 1779
• Practical exercises of common testing methods
• Influence of environmental parameters: Materials, temperature, humidity, conductance, outgassing, ...
• Application examples of test methods learned
Additionally in 3-day-course:
• Real time graphs of signals of a leak detector and its interpretation
• Testing of components of the seminar participants (by prior arrangement)
