|Ronkonkoma, N.Y., December 1 -- Vacuum Instrument Corp., a world leader in the
leak detection industry, today introduced a new series of helium mass spectrometer leak
detectors for testing the integrity of vacuum systems, and parts using helium leak detection
techniques. The new MS-60 is available with a standard 7cfm or an optional 10.6cfm rotary
vane foreline/roughing pump for faster cycle times.|
The MS-60 Series leak detectors allow for greater access to superior system intelligence
with a the push of a button to accurately locate and measure leaks in objects, such as power plant
condensers, food packaging, automobile air bags, and medical devices. Theses products are
designed to meet the needs of industrial processing, parts manufacturing, and general research
applications. They offer portability and high performance specifications to find costly and
inefficient leaks in equipment from compressors and refrigeration parts to nuclear reactors and
power distribution plants. Also, the MS Series simplifies daily operation, minimizes operator
error, and maximizes throughput and efficiency for semiconductor and small parts
manufacturers, who use the detectors to check hermetic packaging, automotive parts,
refrigeration circuits, and numerous other products.
The new MS-60 series is the most advanced portable helium leak detector in the industry,
offering the highest sensitivity and fastest test-time. The MS series utilizes VICs proven dual
magnetic sector helium mass spectrometer for accurate and error-free operation.
Special features of the MS-60 Leak Detector include:

Vacuum Instrument Corporation (VIC) is the world's largest company devoted solely to research
and design, manufacture, distribution, training and service of leak detectors and complete leak
detector solutions. Founded in 1958 as Vacuum Instrument Corporation, VIC introduced the
first portable helium leak detector in 1967, went on to develop the first fully automatic industrial
leak detection system in 1978, and the first sniff only helium leak detector in 1990. In 1994
VIC was selected by the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) to join a
consortium of leading research laboratories and Fortune 50 companies to develop the next
generation of leak detection technology. In 2000, Vacuum Instrument Corporation acquired the
Leak Detection Division of Veeco Instruments Inc. (Plainview, NY). This division was
reorganized as the Advanced Leak Metrology Division. VICs Industrial Leak Detection, Air
Leak Testing, and Advanced Leak Metrology Divisions combine their engineering,
manufacturing, and marketing resources as VIC Leak Detection.
VIC has the world's largest base of installed leak detectors. More than one billion products have
been tested with VICs portable vacuum-type helium sniffers, general purpose helium leak
detectors, mass flow and pressure decay systems, and complete turnkey leak detection solutions.
VIC employs more than 120 people at its corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities,
located in Ronkonkoma, NY and Dayton, OH.
Factory direct sales and service are available worldwide.
