Course content

The participants can basically understand or create testing specifications for mass-produced components and perform appropriate test methods practically. They are incapable of performing further steps to localize leaks on mass-produced components.

This course can also be conducted on your premises. Date, duration and content will be matched to your needs.


  • Terms and definitions in the field of leak detection technology

  • How do detectors and devices work?

  • Physical fundamentals

  • Methods of leak testing

    a) at overpressure (Micro flow)

    b) at atmospheric pressure (sniffing, accumulation method)

    c) under vacuum (helium spraying, integral and partial vacuum method)

  • 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


  • 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, ...

  • Localization of leaks on mass-produced components

  • Application examples of test methods learned

  • Testing of components of the seminar participants (by prior arrangement)
