  • Grayloc seal static tests (Technical Report)

    A series of evaluation tests was performed on Grayloc seals. Helium service and standard seals, size 292, were used. Measurements were made of axial force and motion, diameter, hoop and axial strain, and helium leak rate. Leak rates were in the 10/sup -6/ atm cc/s range for the helium service seals

  • Keep it Tight: Understanding Hermeticity

    In response to concerns about insufficient leak rates for smaller packages and a misreading of requirements, the newer MIL-STD-750F (2021) has changed the conversation from helium leak rates to air leak rates (that is, how the device will actually perform in the real environment). See, air leaks at a much lower rate than helium (larger molecule).

    Helium is the best choice of tracer gas to find leaks for a number of reasons. It is non-toxic, inert, non-condensable, non-flammable and not normally present in the atmosphere at more than trace amounts (5 ppm). Due to its small atomic size, helium passes easily through leaks.
