Proven to be the best method for detecting hazardous hydrocarbon leaks before startup and operation
Safe operating conditions are essential to oil and gas processing systems. Helium Leak Detection is the only method of accurately locating and quantifying system leaks.
Some of the advantages to using Helium Leak Detection include:
- Testing is done as close to system working pressues with a gas to simulate "live" conditions
- Leaks are detected and quantified, making it possible to monitor them over a period of time to determine any deterioration of the joint
- The oxygen content is reduced, which avoids the potential for explosive gas mixtures when hydrocarbons are introduced
- Helps save lost production, time and costs compared to repairing leaks after startup
