Vacuum Leak Detector for Helium Cooling System

Posted in Building Technology, Civil Infrastructure, Embedded Systems, Energy and Utilities, LabVIEW Programming, LabVIEW Programming for Real-Time and FPGA, Test and Measurement, Test and Measurement Automation

The client maintains and operates a large piece of machinery that requires a coolant system that utilizes liquid helium. In order to fix and maintain the system, technology needed to be developed to discover and locate leaks. Leaks needed to be fixed as quickly as possible in order to avoid machine downtime. The system consisted of interfacing several mobile leak detection carts into a single operator interface. This allowed for controlled testing of leaks and the ability to determine leak location...
