The helium bombing process involves placing test parts in a pressurized chamber, allowing helium to penetrate inside the part. After exposure, the part is placed in a vacuum chamber and tested to detect helium leakage. Controlling parameters such as pressurization time, helium pressure, internal volume, and leak size are critical for test success.

LACO offers a complete line of manual and automated helium bombing systems. Both manual and automated systems are available with Laco’s Titan Versa helium leak detector and leak test chambers. 

Manually operated helium bombing systems are equipped with a standard gas charge manifold. The pretested manifold allows complete control of gas for applications including vacuum bombing, sniffing accumulation and calibrated leak standard recharge.

Automated systems feature the Atlas Controller, offering preprogrammed test routines, up to 100 customized test recipes, and data logging.

Custom helium bombing systems can be tailored to meet specific needs that fall outside the standard offerings. These include custom chamber sizes, custom frame or setup design, and multiple bombing chamber setups. LACO also offers custom software sequences or features to automate the system and seamlessly integrate with current software.
