SF6 LeakCheck [SF6 gas detector manufacturer]

Ion Science, SF6 gas detector manufacturer

Ion Science is an SF6 gas detector manufacturer. The SF6 LeakCheck 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 SF6 gas detector manufacturer incorporates 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
  • Does not get affected when 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 are required
  • Two year warranty when product is registered online
