Chigasaki, Kanagawa, Japan, June 26, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - ULVAC, Inc. (Headquarters: Chigasaki, Kanagawa; President and CEO: Hisaharu Obinata; hereafter referred to as ULVAC) is pleased to announce that the company will launch the HELIOT 900 Series leak detectors on June 19, 2014.

Background

Leak detectors are test equipment designed to measure the amount of leakage and locate leaks during helium leak testing, a method of testing leaks using helium gas. Helium leak testing provides higher sensitivity than any other leak test method and enables fast and accurate testing, even for minor leaks. Due to these advantages, helium leak testing is used in a wide range of industries that require leak testing, including production lines for various piping components, electronic devices, air-conditioners, chillers, and automobiles, as well as food/drug packaging and medical equipment.

ULVAC has been selling leak detectors since the 1960s, and since 1995, the name of these products has been the HELIOT Series. We have fully upgraded our time-tested HELIOT 710 Series products to launch the brand-new HELIOT 900 Series.

Overview

The HELIOT 900 Series consists of the following four models:

(1) Portable/901: Suitable for stationary installations (on the table, floor, etc.)
(a) HELIOT 901W1: Equipped with an oil-sealed rotary vacuum pump, 30 L/min
(b) HELIOT 901D2: Equipped with a scroll dry pump, 90 L/min

(2) Mobile/904: Cart-mounted type with ease of moving to support large workpieces
(a) HELIOT 904W2: Equipped with an oil-sealed rotary vacuum pump, 135 L/min
(b) HELIOT 904D3: Equipped with a scroll dry pump, 250 L/min

Features

Following are the new products' features:

(1) The products provide a helium pumping speed of 5 L/sec, which is two to three times higher than competing models in the same class.
To meet today's ever-demanding helium leak testing requirements, such as shorter test times and higher responsiveness, stability and detection sensitivity, we have dramatically improved helium evacuation capability while increasing the sensitivity of the detection unit.

(2) Tablet-type controller as a standard feature
The display is no longer fixed to the detector body, eliminating operational constraints and greatly improving usability. The 7-inch capacitance touch panel allows operators to work with the detector more intuitively and promptly while holding it in hand. The controller comes standard with wireless remote connection to enable remote control operation. The display supports seven languages.

(3) Advanced mobile cart
To ensure safe movement - even through narrow passages - the cart embodies numerous features requested by professionals in laboratories, such as a compact body, large wheels, a flat panel cover, and the ease of moving and placing.

(4) Improved user serviceability
The service panel can be removed without tools. The internal structure provides good serviceability. Maintenance can be performed in accordance with a step-by-step video that can be displayed on the controller.

(5) The products are interchangeable with existing models to enable a smooth transition.

Sales Target and Price

- Sales target: 800 units annually
- Sales price range: 2,400,000 to 3,550,000 yen
