What is helium leak detection?

A Mass Spectrometer Leak Detector (MSLD) is an instrument that uses helium as a trace gas to find a variety of different kinds of leaks. It can also give a measure of the size of the leak, for example, how much is escaping per quantity of air. This device can be used for any vacuum system. In other words, any appliances with sealed parts closed off to certain gases or liquids. For example, refrigerators, furnaces and pipeline are all examples of systems relevant to leak detection.

Why is helium used in MSLD?

Helium is used because it is a small molecule; it is safe, non- flammable and non-toxic. It’s lightness in mass result in its projection up higher into air where it can quickly be detected.

What can a helium leak detectors be used for?

The primary application of MSLD in residential areas is for the detection of water leaks. It is safe to pump helium into drinking water for leak detection. Helium is pumped into the water, and helium levels are monitored in and outside of your home. The areas above the leak will signal for high helium detection, hence revealing its location.
