Leak Testing in Serial Production

Target audience:Users, operating and maintenance personnel
Prior knowledge:Fundamental knowledge of vacuum technology
Learning objective:The participants will learn the fundamentals of different methods of quantitative leak testing and its practical application. They 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.
Course content:Fundamentals
• 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)
