A flexible, automated solution for detecting microleaks
The TracerMate II is a leak test and tracer gas management instrument from Cincinnati Test Systems. The TracerMate II is ideal for manufacturers in a variety of markets including transportation, HVAC, appliances and industrial, when part types and leak rates mean that standard pressure or flow technologies aren't appropriate.
Tired of the dunk tank? Meet the TracerMate II
Watch this video (image, below) to learn how you can eliminate messy, destructive tests in favor of an automated leak test solution using tracer gas.
Portable, turnkey solution for HVAC and refrigerant systems
The TracerMate II is also available in a simple, turnkey, portable system including the instrument, a helium or hydrogen detection device and a vacuum pump, all mounted on a test cart.
CTS has designed the TracerMate II with capabilities that offer more value-added features than any other evacuation/charge units on the market.
