GasCheck, the handheld helium leak detector from Ion Science

GasCheck Tesla [handheld helium leak detector]

GasCheck Tesla is a handheld helium leak detector manufactured by Ion Science. The GasCheck detector incorporates the advanced microthermal conductivity sensors. The sensor provides advanced sensitivity, and rapid and effective detection of helium leaks.

The detector is reliable, robust and easy to use.

GasCheck Tesla

GasCheck Tesla is a highly sensitive, handheld helium leak detector. The detector is designed to provide rapid and accurate measurements of helium in high magnetic fields around the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners. The advanced microthermal conductivity sensors enable the device to detect helium leaks at ultra-low levels.

The helium detector can be used whilst the MRI scanner is in operation, eliminating interruptions at work. 

The detector comes with a handheld probe. The device is designed to reach small places, enabling fast detection of all possible leak paths.

GasCheck Tesla has the following benefits:

  • Operates effectively around a high magnetic field
  • Detects small leaks at ultra-low levels
  • The small internal flow rate provides maximum sensitivity
  • Fast and accurate leak detection
  • Reliable, stable and continuous readings
  • Rapidly detects helium leaks and minimises interruption
  • Low cost alternative to expensive mass spectrometers
  • Affordable and parts
  • 2 year warranty when the instrument is registered online
  • The device can be operated by one hand
  • The handheld probe is designed to reach small places easily
  • Large LCD back-lit display
  • Graphical icon menu
