SF6 LeakCheck P1:p is a revolution in SF6 leak detection, ensuring
incredibly fast searching at ultra sensitive levels. Even the smallest of
leaks can be detected and located swiftly with a minimum detection level
of 1 x 10-7ml/sec or optional 1 x 10-8ml/sec, equivalent to a grain of
rice per year!
Designed for SF6 gas leak testing and measurement in high voltage
electrical SF6 switchgear, the instrument also detects other gases with a
high affinity for electrons, such as refrigerant R12.
A unique advantage of the instrument is that it is unaffected by exposure
to large leaks. Even after saturation or exposure to leaks of 100%, clear
down remains rapid (<1s). The SF6 gas leak detector also benefits from
having a non-radioactive source, eliminating registration, storage and
transportation issues found with traditional radioactive ECD SF6 gas
leak detectors.
Additional features of the SF6 gas leak detector include data-logging,
alarms; both audio and visual, and a robust portable case. The instrument
requires no consumables, such as Argon, reducing the ongoing costs of
operation. There are no items requiring maintenance or service in the
handgun or console.

The P1:p SF6 gas leak detector meets the demands for quality and traceability to
international standards as required by today’s industry. It is designed for the
location, leak testing and measurement of SF6 leaks in high voltage electrical
The instrument’s award winning Negative Ion Capture (NIC) technology with
non-radioactive source eliminates problems of registration, storage and
