Leaktesting

Based on the MEMS based Microflown particle velocity a special sensor is developed for measuring leakages. With a Microflown leaktection sensor  a pressurized surface is scanned. With this method very small leaks can be detected (down to several microns). Due to the scanning technique, not only will be notified that there is a leak but also directly the position of the leak is found. The response time of the method is in milliseconds. Where other existing methods require Helium or the flamable hydrogen, the Microflown method uses normal air. Only a few Bar overpressure is required for operation, therefore no special pumps are resuired.
