LACO Technologies Introduces the New TITANTEST™ Leak Detector for Production Processes

We are proud to announce the release of our new bench top helium leak detector, the TITANTEST™. LACO’s TITANTEST™ is a robust high-performance helium mass spectrometer leak detector that offers powerful solutions to the challenges of production leak detection applications. The TITANTEST™ is perfect for reliable quality control in your assembly process and works well in many production environments for leak testing an array of parts.

TITANTEST Helium Leak Detector

Some examples of applications requiring helium leak testing that the TITANTEST is best suited for include:

Automotive (Airbags, Gas tanks, Compressors, Fuel Rails, ABS Valves, Shock Absorbers, Manifolds, Radiators)

Leak testing automotive parts

Aircraft/Aerospace (Hydraulic Components, Oxygen Lines, Engines, Fuel Tanks)

Medical (Implants, Surgical Devices, Catheters, Pacemakers, Blood Filters)

leak testing medical devices

Energy (Batteries, Transformers, Fuel Cells, Solar, Circuit Breakers)


Refrigeration-A/C (Compressor, Evaporators, Condensers, Coils, Evaporators, Valves, Condensers)

Refrigeration and A/C leak testing

The implementation of more rigorous quality standards in these industries is requiring that parts meet lower leak rate tolerances. These low leak rates are not detectable by traditional air leak testing instruments. The TITANTEST™ offers users many decades lower in sensitivity as well as the advantage of precision leak locating. This is due to the fact that the leak detector is a high sensitivity mass spectrometer. Mass spectrometers allow for a wide range of detection, reliable and quantitative data, and testing that is non-destructive.

Features include:

  • Three Vacuum Test Modes (Gross, Fine, and Ultra)
  • Auto-Calibration with Built-In Helium Calibrated Leak
  • Helium and Hydrogen Background Suppression
  • Audio Alarm with Variable Pitch
  • Flexible I/O to Interface with External Vacuum Pumps and Helium Gas Charging Module
  • Long-Life Yttria Coated Iridium Filament
  • 5 x 10^-12 atm.cc/sec Minimum Helium Detectable Signal in Hard Vacuum Mode
  • 5 x 10^-8 atm.cc/sec Minimum Helium Detectable Signal in Sniffing Mode
  • Maximum Inlet Pressure of 25 mbar

With plug and play accessories and configurable options it’s easy to integrate the TITANTEST™ into assembly lines and production test systems. A wireless remote control enables operation of the unit from a distance of up to 330 feet and a communication module allows one to monitor and record their leak testing process remotely through a web browser interface.
