Vacuum Leak Detector — 1/4" to 3" Outer Diameter

ph vacuumleak detectThe Vacuum Leak Detector (VLD) is a simple test instrument used by manufacturers and users of condensers, heat exchangers and other tubular apparatus to identify leaky tubes from 1/4 to 3-inch (6.4 - 76.2mm) Outer Diameter. With the VLD, one user can seal the far end of a tube with a snap type tube plug by pressing the rubber-coated nozzle into the near end of the tube and depressing the trigger. A steady Gauge reading indicates a good tube, while a falling vacuum indicates a leaky tube. Using a 90 psi dry clean air, a typical tube (1-inch Outer Diameter x 20-Gauge and 20-feet in length) can be tested in 6 to 8 seconds. The VLD weighs 2-1/4 pounds and is equipped with a muffler, providing quiet operation even in confined areas.

The VLD can be used with accessory parts, including the Tube Plug Snap for 3/8 to 2-inch (9.5 - 50.8mm) Outer Diameter. Additional nozzles are available from 1/4 to 3-inch (6.4 - 76.2mm) Outer Diameter and nozzle extensions are available from 5/8 to 2-inch (15.9 - 50.8mm) Outer Diameter. The Vacuum Leak Detector is available on a rental basis.
