Dry Helium Leak Detector vs Wet Helium Leak Detector

Do You Really Need a Dry Leak Detector?

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.
