Helium Leak Detection in Saudi Arabia
TCR Arabia in KSA now offer all its clients advanced Helium Leak Testing services.

Helium Leak Testing by TCR in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and IndiaTCR Arabia's Helium Leak Testing instrument has a roughing capacity of 10 m3/h (7 cfm) with usable helium sensitivity in the 10-11 atm cc/s range. The unit has a dedicated sniffing unit, based on a well-proven leak testing concept, and is also available for outboard leak testing applications.

TCR Arabia has experienced operators will come directly to a customer site and perform most any leak tests. The crew has performed this test on sites from nuclear carriers, polymer plants, oil refineries, gas and steam turbine power plants in Saudi Arabia and India. The technicians are higly mobile and perform helium leak testing on heat exchangers, steam turbines and condensers, distillation towers, buried pipelines and many other systems and components.

TCR Arabia's services include vacuum leak testing for any type of vacuum vessel or system and pressure probe testing for systems that normally operate at or above ambient pressure. Virtually any system that has a requirement for leak tightness or that is suspected of causing a problem due to leakage can be tested by one of these methods of helium leak testing with a high degree of reliability.

The Helium Leak Testing unit of TCR Arabia utilizes has a proven mechanical vacuum pump technology designed specifically for heavy usage in very harsh industrial environments. The helium stability of the rotary vane pump guarantees excellent stability of the helium signal. The low rotational speed of the M.D.P. (Molecular Drag Pump) at 27,000 rpm makes this unit totally bullet proof against accidental air inrushes. Further, it allows the leak detector to be moved while in operation.

The high compression ratio of the M.D.P. facilitates the gross leak test at a high pressure (7.5 Torr / 10 mbar) which speeds up the leak test process of outgassing parts. The internal layout of the unit allows easy access to all the components.

In addition, the unit also offers evolved features to assist the operator in his daily test operation:
  • Auto-calibration, with built-in temperature compensated calibrated leak (dedicated to the sniffing mode)
  • Helium background suppression with "floating" zero to keep the signal from going negative and to increase sensitivity.
  • Automatic signal correction
  • Audio alarm with variable pitch (up to 90 dBA)
  • Vocal synthesizer
