John Morris Scientific  has introduced MKS Instrument’s new addition to the PICO line of gas leak detectors.

The PICO Sniffer is a portable and battery operated mass spectrometer-based helium leak detector.

The PICO Sniffer is used in a variety of industries where pressurised components need to be tested for leaks. In semiconductor manufacturing the leak detector is used during piping installation and cylinder changes where leak-tight integrity is critical for health and safety.

Traditionally leak detection has been accomplished with either a large instrument which proves difficult to transport, or with an instrument that was lightweight but unable to meet reliability and sensitivity requirements.

The PICO Sniffer has a minimum detectable leak rate of 1 x 10-7 atm-cc/s, is 4 inches wide, 15 inches long, 10 inches high and weighs only 7kg.
