LACO offers a complete line of standard manual and automated helium bombing systems to ensure leak testing of sealed components is accurate, reliable, and safe. For post-bombing leak testing, LACO uses our TITAN VERSA™ helium leak detector with one of our standard leak test chambers. Custom helium bombing systems are available to meet unique test requirements that fall outside of the standard offering range. LACO also offers a full line of helium bombing accessories.
With over 20 years experience in helium bombing applications, our sales and engineering teams are ready to support your leak test application and hardware needs. We can help you meet specifications outlined in Mil-Std-883 TM-1014 and Mil-Std-750 Test Method 1071 .
Helium bombing systems are ideal for manufacturers of small sealed electronics and other hermetically sealed devices which cannot be filled with helium directly. The test parts are placed in a helium gas exposed pressure chamber, allowing the helium to penetrate the part. After helium exposure, the part is removed and placed in a vacuum chamber connected to the leak detector to determine if the part leak rate is acceptable. Important considerations include pressurization time, helium bombing pressure, internal volume, and leak size.
