Helium Leak Test System Market: Market Overview

The helium leak test system is a kind of test system for leak inspections of high pressure and with high accuracy in which helium gas is used as the detection or tracer gas. A helium leak testing system can control the leaking if product leaks more helium than what is acceptable and it also measures the leak rate. In most of the helium leak test systems, the testing is done by loading the product into a vacuum chamber along with connecting a vacuum below the product, then the product along with the chamber is pumped to a comparatively low vacuum level. Helium is put into the object and then the concentration of helium inside the chamber is measured. The helium leak test system is considered to be the only reliable leak detection method when very small leaks below 10-4 mbar • l / s have to be detected. The helium leak test system is very useful when extremely fast cycle times are required; it also has useful applications where complete automation is required and human errors or mistakes are not acceptable. Helium being a non-poisonous and non-explosive gas is preferred for leak testing systems. Hydrogen is the lightest element followed by helium; helium can penetrate into the small leaks where other heavy elements cannot.

Helium Leak Test System Market: Market Dynamics

The increase in demand for examining leaks in the object during operation or cycle times is fueling the growth of the helium leak testing system. The need to prevent unplanned and expensive shutdowns of many manufacturing plants and industries is creating the demand for the helium leak test system. The need for ensuring the integrity of machined parts has become essential in many industrial processes today, which in turn is leading to the growth of helium leak test system. The rise in helium costs is a restraining factor for the growth of the helium leak test system market. The manufacture of the customized helium leak test system for the specific needs of the customer sets the scope for the development of the helium leak test system market. The ability of helium leak test systems to detect the minutest of the leaks is beneficial for the manufacturers bending towards the fully automated manufacturing processes.

Helium Leak Test System Market: Market Segmentation

The global helium leak test system market can be segmented on the basis of the number of chambers in the whole system:

  • Single chambered
  • Double chambered
  • Multi-chambered

It can also be segmented on the basis of end-use industries:

  • Automobiles
  • Aerospace & Aeronautics
  • Quick connectors and fitting
  • Construction
  • Medical
  • Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology
  • Food & Beverages
  • Electronics
  • Power Generation & Power Plants

Helium Leak Test System Market: Segmentation Overview

The different types of helium leak test system are vacuum test, sniffer test, helium spray and bombing test. The vacuum test is used to test components such as airbags, canisters, condensers, evaporators, fuel tanks, hoses, pipes, tubes and thermostatic valves. The sniffer test is used for the parts which can’t be pushed inside a vacuum chamber such as refrigerators or refrigerated food displays. It is also used to locate a leak which has already been detected by other methods, in order to allow for repair of other parts. The helium spray test is repeatedly used to check porosity in the cast parts or parts which operate in the vacuum such as water pumps and brake pumps. The bombing test is used to detect small leaks, where the usual leak range to be detected is from 5.0 x 10-2 mbar*L/s to 1.0 x 10-4 mbar*L/s.

Helium Leak Test System Market: Regional Outlook

The global helium leak test system market geographically is segmented as North America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific excluding Japan, Japan, and Middle East & Africa. North America and Europe hold a significant share of the helium leak test system market owing to the fully automated manufacturing processes. Furthermore, the increase in R & D activities related to aerospace and automobiles, wherein helium leak test system are useful for detecting minutest leakages, aids in boosting the growth of helium leak test system market in the region. The market in the APEJ region is more inclined towards growing demand for helium leak test system because of the increasing industrial automation and increasing number of manufacturing plants.
