Tracer Gases in Production Processes
Tracer Gases are repetitively used in leak testing of components in manufacturing processes. Typical tracer gases used in leak testing are helium, hydrogen, and various refrigerants, such as R22. After each component leak test, recovery of tracer gases is functionally and economically required. Helium gas recovery is accomplished in VTI’s Tracer Gas Recovery (TGR) System. Recovery of refrigerant tracer gases is accomplished in VTI’s Refrigerant Vapor Recovery (RVR) System. If you require a system for recovery of other tracer gases, other than helium, hydrogen, or refrigerants, please contact our Leak Testing Experts for a solution. When refrigerants are used as a tracer gas, tracer gas handling systems are required. We offer both Refrigerant Tracer Mixing Systems and Tracer Gas Boost Systems.
Refrigerant Tracer Gas Mixing and Boost Systems
VTI designs and manufactures complete Refrigerant Tracer Gas Mixing and Boost Systems. A mixing system is shown at left and a boost system at right. When using refrigerant as a leak testing tracer gas in an HVAC production facility, the refrigerant/air mix must be controlled to an exact R22/Air ratio for the process. The VTI Tracer Gas Mixing System maintains the R22/Air ratio within +/- 2% of the target ratio. In addition, when the use rate of refrigerant tracer gas is high, a tracer gas boost system is required. Boost Systems are custom-designed for your process. The example in the photograph requires 100 psig of low pressure refrigerant tracer gas mix and boosts the pressure of the mix to greater than 200 psig for use in large chamber leak testing systems.
Low Cost Tracer Gas Mixing Station
Your total cost of tracer gas (i.e. helium) usage can be minimized by adjusting the tracer gas mix for different lots and sizes of parts to be leak tested, where the acceptance criterion may vary. This Mixing Station is capable of supplying the same mix of tracer gas to multiple leak test stations. The benefit of this inexpensive mixing station is ease and convenience in adjusting the percentage of tracer gas used to achieve adequate sensitivity in leak testing various parts to be tested.
