Getting your hands on the latest helium leak detector model is easier than ever thanks to the TitanTest™ Lease & Rental Program from LACO Technologies. If the outright purchase of a new helium leak detector is not an option for you, then you no longer have to settle on buying a refurbished model which might be obsolete. LACO offers three new options for procuring a leak detector which are as follows: 2-Year Lease-to-Own (Brand New Unit), 1-Year Rental (New/Newly Refurbished Unit), and Short Term Rental (New/Newly Refurbished Unit).
We are proud to announce the exciting launch of our new 24/7 support service. You can now contact LACO Technologies any time (twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week) to receive support right when you need it. By offering competent and responsive technical support we hope to increase your uptime. Read more
Automate Your Helium Filling and Leak Test Process with LACO’s NEW Atlas™ Leak Test Process Controller
Automate your helium filling and leak test process with LACO’s Atlas™ Leak Test Process Controller. Atlas™ is a flexible controller that allows for helium charging, evacuation, air proof testing, and decay testing of products for tracer gas leak testing. The standard controller can be configured for automated hard vacuum, HATS™, sniffing, and accumulation helium leak testing methods.

Successful implementation of a leak test system in a production environment starts with clearly stated requirements. Those requirements are often supplied to a prospective supplier in a Request for Proposal (RFP). Often RFP’s are either not formally provided, or they are inadequate to communicate the customer’s requirements so that the equipment provided has a clear understanding of what the customer is expecting.

In this article we cover the leak testing method of visual vacuum bubble leak testing for use on product and food packaging that contains some headspace gas. This may also be referred to as bubble emission testing when packaging is immersed under water under atmospheric conditions. Read more
Over the past 20 years, there has been an increase in dry leak detector demand (mainly driven by semiconductor fabrication plants). The demand was spurred by the fear of oil back-streaming from leak detector models using oil-sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps. Fortunately, this fear has been quelled by modern vacuum pump technology. However, many buyers are still letting this old problem guide their decision making process when selecting a new leak detector. This can be a costly decision if the only reason for choosing the dry leak detector over the wet is oil back-streaming. Dry units can run 30% to 50% more in cost ($) than wet leak detector models.
