Power generation leak testing: through a variety of techniques we can identify and locate air in-leakage quickly and efficiently. We can locate leaks in welds, valves, steam lines, expansion joints, shaft and flange seals, turbine housing seals, pumps, and heat exchanger tube sheets. By pinpointing the exact locations of your air leaks, we frequently provide the opportunity for immediate repair and retest allowing for instant feedback on system performance.
Much like other applications, helium leak testing provides superior sensitivity as compared to more traditional approaches, such as acoustic emission and the smoke technique. Most systems can be tested while the system is on-line and frequently in less than one or two days.
