SF6 LeakCheck P1:p Portable SF6 Gas Leak Detector

General Details

SF6 LeakCheck P1:p is designed for the location, leak testing and measurement of SF6 leaks in high voltage electrical switchgear.

The revolutionary SF6 leak detector rapidly detects leaks down to 1 x 10-8ml/sec, with a response and clear down of less than 1 second.

The instrument’s award winning Negative Ion Capture (NIC) technology with non-radioactive source eliminates problems of registration, storage and transportation.

The LeakCheck P1:p  SF6 leak detector is unaffected by large leaks. The detector will continue to remain uncontaminated even after exposure to 100% SF6 gas.

  • Ultra high sensitivity – detects leaks down to 1 x 10-8 ml/sec*
  • 1 second rise and clear down
  • Non radioactive detector allows for easy storage and transportation
  • No argon or other pressurised gases required
  • Display units cc/sec, gm/yr and ppm
  • Easy to use touch screen with intuitive help menus
  • Lightweight 3 button handgun
  • Data storage and printing
  • Large leaks present no contamination problems
  • Robust Peli case for hardwearing use in the field
  • No training required – switch on and go

*HighSense™ option
