Course content

The participants 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.

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

  • Why helium as tracer gas?

  • How do detectors and devices work?

  • Methods of leak testing

    a) at atmospheric pressure (sniffing, accumulation method)

    b) 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

  • 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, ...

  • Application examples of test methods learned

  • Real time graphs of signals of a leak detector and its interpretation

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