SF6 Leakmate

The SF₆ Leakmate leak detector is a great device for mobile SF₆ leak detection. In practical use, it has a detection threshold of 1x10E⁻⁶mbar l/s, which makes it perfectly suitable for simple leak detection applications on SF₆ switchgear.

The easy to use, processor controlled instrument features both an audible alarm and an LED bar graph display, allowing estimation if a small, medium, or big leak is being detected.

The leak detector automatically compensates all ambient influences like temperature changes or movement of air in the room. Intelligent control sets up the instrument appropriately for the ambient situation. It then uses the present gas concentration as its zero line, and begins to look for even higher gas concentrations, which by all means occur when a leak is approached. This will again be indicated audibly and visually. It is thus possible to determine leaks even in an already seriously contaminated area.

The assessment of gross leaks is often useful to get an idea of a component's leak tightness, before much more sensitive instruments like SF₆ LEAKCHECK P1:p must be used.
