Pfeiffer Vacuum Introduces the New ASM 340 Leak Detector for Medical Applications

  • Reliable leak detection for quality assurance
  • Short cycle time and high throughput
  • High performance and sensitivity with easy operation 
  • Helium and Hydrogen leak detection for global component testing (pass/fail) or sniffing applications

The new ASM 340 is a high-performance and durable leak detector for production testing.  The wide range of applications in the medical device industry includes catheters, tube sets, probes, implants, etc.  The compact leak detector can be used in both production and the laboratory.

The ASM 340 compensates for component temperature variations and elastomeric creep and therefore provides fast test results even for high sensitivity applications.  For global testing the ASM 340 offers the user many decades more in sensitivity than electronic air testing and the added advantage that it can also be used to pinpoint the leak.

A large selection of interfaces enables easy integration of the detector into production lines and automatic test systems. The removable graphical user interface and the optional sniffer probe with LEDs make the work that much easier.  Data can be saved to the integrated SD card and then downloaded to an external device for further analysis.  The wireless remote control enables operation from a distance of up to 100 meters.  Thanks to the robust design and the minimal maintenance required, service costs are also very low.

With its extensive accessories, the ASM 340 can be adapted to a specific applications.  A special transport cart also enables mobile use of the device.  Existing accessories for leak detectors in the ASM series are also compatible with the new device.

To complement the market introduction of the ASM 340 Pfeiffer Vacuum presents the Leak Detection Compendium.  This handbook offers combined leak testing and leak detection expertise.
