SF6 LeakCheck [portable sf6 gas leak detector]

portable sf6 gas leak detector

The sf6 LeakCheck is a portable sf6 gas leak detector manufactured by Ion Science.

The sf6 detector incorporates the award winning Negative Ion Capture (NIC) technology with a non-radioactive source. The NIC technology enables the detector to provide accurate measurements and location for sf6 leaks in high voltage electrical switchgears.

The non-radioactive source eliminates problems of registration, storage and transportation.

The detector does not get contaminated when exposed to 100% sf6 gas.


The portable sf6 gas leak detector has the following features

  • High sensitivity – 1 x 10-8 ml/sec
  • Award winning Negative Ion Capture (NIC) technology
  • Rapid leak detection – 1 second response time and clear down
  • Not affected if exposed to large leaks and 100% sf6 gas
  • No regeneration period between readings
  • Choice of displaying unit– cc/sec, gm/yr and ppm
  • Non-radioactive source for easy storage and transportation
  • Easy to use – No training required
  • Lightweight – ergonomically designed handgun
  • Easy navigation - touch screen navigation
  • Simple data storage and printing for analysis
  • Reduced cost of ownership – No argon or other pressurised gases is required
  • Two year warranty when product is registered online
