Air Liquide choose Ion Science again for gas leak detectors

News

Latest handheld instruments monitor for gas leaks after high pressure cylinder changes

Air Liquide Electronics, has recently replaced two 20-year old Ion Science gas leak detectors, with the latest Ion Science GasCheck G instruments. Chosen for the robust, reliable and upgradeable design, the Dallas-based semiconductor manufacturer is using the high performance handheld instruments to check for gas leaks after high pressure cylinder changes.

Air Liquide Electronics is a well-established supplier of innovative solutions for the semiconductor, photovoltaic and flat panel display markets, including computers, mobile phones, digital cameras, etc. As an established supplier in the design, manufacture and delivery of molecules, Air Liquide Electronics contributes to the innovation of the world's most advanced companies in the electronic industry.

Jana Wu, TGCM Gas Specialist at Air Liquide comments: "We had two 20-year old Ion Science GasCheck B detectors that still worked okay but had started to suffer from the wear and tear you would expect after two decades. We did a benchmark against other old detectors around the factory and we were impressed to discover that the Ion Science units were the only ones still operational.

Jana adds: "Based on our experience with the old Ion Science instruments, we decided to upgrade to the company's newer GasCheck G2 gas leak detectors which would give our cylinder technicians a little more confidence in leak testing results."

Ion Science's GasCheck G gas leak detector represents the latest in handheld gas detection technology. Its advanced system of micro thermal conductivity enables advanced sensitivity for the rapid, effective detection of gas leaks down to cc/sec, mg/m³ or parts per million (ppm) levels.

"We chose the GasCheck G2 model because it provided an actual reading instead of a bar graph type output plus it is upgradeable to the G3 model if required," Jana adds. "One of our favourite features is the instrument's ability to provide cc/sec or ppm measurements. It can also be adjusted for sensitivity which is an advantage."

Designed for the search and location of gas leaks, the GasCheck G leak detector provides effective detection of almost any gas or mix of gases. Robust and reliable, the GasCheck G leak detector gives stable, repeatable readings. The instrument's LCD display, LED indicator, and audible sounder clearly indicate when a gas leak is present.

Air Liquide uses the Ion Science GasCheck G gas leak detectors every time a cylinder is changed which is daily. The company's cylinder technicians use the readings on the GasCheck G's display to ensure there is no leak after connecting to the cylinder.


GasCheck G automatically zeros to the ambient air around it when switched on and is ready to detect immediately. The instrument's easy to use graphical interface and intuitive keypad allows for simple function, selection, and adjustment.
