Leybold is launching the PHOENIX 4, a new family of helium leak detectors to meet the increasing quality requirements.

This new product is suited to the demands of research and development and for industrial applications – from securing the ultra-high vacuum demands in CERN’s particle accelerator, to industrial applications such as leak detection in the Hyperloop vacuum transport system or for semiconductor production.

The fourth generation PHOENIX sets new standards in terms of operating comfort, response times, helium sensitivity and reliability. Moreover, the stationary and mobile models are easier to handle and maintain than their predecessors. For example, it is now possible to change the filter without removing the housing. This compact, versatile helium leak detector is available in three classes, the PHOENIX Vario, PHOENIX Quadro, and PHOENIX Magno, which are designed for various customer applications with their different pumping speed configurations.

The Phoenix 4

The PHOENIX 4 can be operated via a colour touch display or wirelessly with any Internet-capable mobile device, due to the integrated web server. The optimised design of the display allows users to intuitively navigate through the menu and the sensitive touch displays and push-buttons can be easily activated.

In addition to the sensitivity and reproducibility of reliable leak rate measurements, users of the PHOENIX-4 family benefit from the fast, operational readiness and adaptability of the helium leak detector models throughout the range.

Product Manager Dr. Sina Forster commented, “These performance characteristics are just as important in high-energy physics, e.g. at the Centre for German Electron Synchrotron DESY for basic scientific research in Hamburg, as they are in semiconductor production.”

Forster concludes, “The two of the most important features of a helium leak detector in all modern applications are its accuracy over a wide measuring range and its time of response.”
