Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology AG has released multiple products developed by its new subsidiary Advanced Test Concepts, Inc. (ATC) that eliminate the need for special tracer gases by using air as part of its leading leak testing technology.
The devices operate according to patented Micro-Flow technology, consisting of an integrated micro sensor that works on accelerated flow.
The use of the Micro-Flow sensor in Mass Extraction techniques works on the principle of rarefied gas flow. This type of testing is ideal for enclosed objects, such as pharmaceutical packaging and electronic components, that are being tested for water tightness. Sensitivity of up to 5-10-6 mbar l/s can be achieved with this method.
