SF6 LeakCheck P1:p

SF6 gas leak detector

The SF6 LeakCheck P1:p is an award winning SF6 gas leak detector that uses negative Ion Capture (NIC) technology designed for location, leak testing and detection of SF6 leaks in high electrical switchgear.

The SF6 gas leak detector rapidly detects SF6 gas leaks down to 1 x 10-8 ml/sec with a quick clear down of less than 1 second. The SF6 gas leak detector is unaffected by the exposure to large SF6 gas leaks and will continue to remain uncontaminated even after the exposure to 100% SF6 gas.
