Vacuum Leak Detector
 

      

 

 

The Vacuum Leak Detector (VLD) is a simple test instrument used for condensers, heat exchangers and other tubular apparatus to identify tubes leakage.

 

Sealing the far end of each tube with a snap type tube plug then presses the rubber coated nozzle into the near end of the tube and depresses the trigger. Compressed air flows through a venturi chamber to produce a vacuum in the tested tube. When this vacuum reaches a satisfactory level, he releases the trigger. A steady Gauge reading indicates a good tube. A falling vacuum indicates tube leakage.

 

Using a 90psi dry clean air, a typical tube (1inch OD x 20 Gauge & 20ft long) can be tested in 6 to 8 seconds. The tool weighs 2 1/4lbs. and is equipped with a muffler, so it operates quietly even in confined areas.
