Tracer Gas Testing

Tracer Gas Testing is crucial to gas delivery systems and chemical delivery systems. The tracer gas leak testing also includes understanding of how the equipment is being ventilated.

Ventilation and tracer gas testing are crucial to gas delivery systems and chemical delivery systems. This testing allows us to ensure the capture of toxic chemicals and flammable materials within enclosures. This testing is crucial to the development of your delivery equipment certification to SEMI standards and required by the semiconductor industry. Allow us to perform a third-party evaluation, testing and validation of your gas and chemical delivery systems.

If you’re looking for new and innovative ways to have your equipment meet tracer gas testing and pass ventilation requirements, then contact us now.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the most commonly used Tracer Gas for Leak Detection?

SF6 or Helium are very commonly used and have a wide range of applications; however, there are limitations. These limitations include costs, gas density and background contamination of the same or similar gases.

What Standards Refer to Tracer Gas Leak Testing?

There are many standards and we can help you to determine what is right for your equipment and your industry. As an example, SEMI S6 is the environmental, health and safety guideline for exhaust ventilation of Semiconductor Manufacturing equipment. It refers to the optimization of exhaust ventilation. This is our primary testing service.

Who needs tracer gas testing?

If you are building a system that generates toxic, flammable, pyrophoric, noxious or odorous materials as part of the process, and these materials are released or may be inadvertently released during processing, service, maintenance or upset or incident, then you will need tracer gas testing. If you are unsure if your equipment needs tracer gas testing, reach out to us through the contact form below, and we will support you in understanding if you need tracer gas testing or not.

Why do I need tracer Gas Testing?

Most semiconductor facilities, pharmaceutical manufacturing and chemical processing facilities all require proof of exhaust capture of dangerous toxic, flammable and pyrophoric materials. Proving that your exhaust capture works, reduces risk of explosion or fire and reduces risk of exposure of employees to toxic materials. All semiconductor facilities required tracer gas testing for any equipment using these hazardous materials. You will need tracer gas testing if you expect to deploy equipment into these industries.

Process

We help walk our clients through the process to design based on the standards that it will be tested to and need to comply with in order to enter your desired market.

Timeline

Our basic timeline for Tracer Gas Testing is about three weeks for the full process after the PO is received. Each piece of equipment is different and we can quote your specific equipment.

Cost

There are factors that you can anticipate will add to the cost and can be planned for in your budget.
