TRACERCO Diagnostics™ - Helium Leak Study
An experienced team of Tracerco technologists recently carried out a large number of leak test studies on various heat exchangers on a customers site, a major fine chemicals manufacturer. The team of technologists used the TRACERCO Diagnostics™ Helium Leak Study, which in this case was used in an offline capacity due to the extra sensitivity required from the test and the confidence it provided the customer.
Various types of heat exchangers were tested (spiral, shell & tube, plate) during the study and the results were made available immediately.
The TRACERCO Diagnostics™ Helium Leak Study was carried out as follows:
A total of 10 heat exchangers were tested over a one week period in which Tracerco provided a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week cover for the turnaround.
Used during a TRACERCO
Diagnostics™ Leak Study
The results of the TRACERCO Diagnostics™ Helium Leak Study confirmed that a number of exchangers had small leaks within them and these were repaired and then re-tested, thus ensuring the plant was operating safely and at optimised performance.
The benefits of the TRACERCO Diagnostics™ Helium Leak Study are as follows:
