Leak Detection

Leak Detection

Altair has several complimentary manufacturing processes to support our contract brazing and vacuum product lines, which include Helium Mass Spec Leak Detection.


We have three leak detectors in-house, two of which are ceramic bearing models (no oil back-streaming is possible) that are used on assemblies intended to be “ready for use” right out-of-the-box.

Our Pfeiffer model is capable of detecting leaks as small as X10-10 scale whereas our other units have the standard  X10-9 scale capabilities.

In addition to leak detection, we also perform static pressure testing, pressure drop, and a “continuity check” that identifies blocked or partially blocked passages.
