Evacuation and Backfill System Facilitates Leak TestingVIC Leak Detection8, Ronkonkoma, NY, USA
Ronkonkoma, N.Y., September 10 -- Vacuum Instrument Corp., world leading manufacturer of leak detection equipment and leak test systems, releases third-generation evacuation and gas backfill system. The Smart Charge III is a fully automatic, custom-configurable gas evacuation and backfill system with built-in gross-leak test used to pre-charge products under test with gas for leak detection or for any gas charging application that requires evacuation and subsequent pressurization of the test product.
The systems new features include the industrys first user selectable cumulative leak site integration feature to distinguish if each individual leak site is an accept or a reject and to determine if the accumulated leak measurements exceeds the specified leak reject limit; parts can either reject on one leak site or the accumulation of multiple sites. Other features include built-in gross leak test capability to eliminate tracer gas contamination; up to 10 part specific recipes each with up to 10 leak sites, with user configurable dwell time at each site; barcode scanner input; serial printer output; and remote monitoring over an Ethernet connection; PLC control allowing for flexible configuration. The Smart Charge III can be readily integrated with VICs MD-490S Real Sniffer portable dry industrial helium leak detector for tracer gas charging of products prior to fine leak testing. Gas recovery and mixing options are also offered by VIC to create a completely integrated gas handling and test system.
