SniffIT X1® is a handheld battery powered leak detector based on the novel patented SniffIT technology®. SniffIT X1® is designed for sniffing both Helium and Hydrogen.
SniffIT X1® is ergonomic and the smallest high quality instrument on the market, it weighs approximately 300g (0.66 lbs). The smallest detectable levels of Helium and Hydrogen with SniffIT technology® is 1×10-5 mbar.l/s, making the technology one of the most sensitive in the marketplace today. The flexibility to detect both Helium and Hydrogen makes SniffIT X1® independent of the tracer gas used for leak detection, and is the only one of its kind.
With SniffIT technology® the sensor never gets saturated and consequently the instrument has no variable costs unlike most alternatives. At the same time it has instantaneous reaction time and no start up time, just push the ON button and start sniffing. The instrument has two sensitivity ranges; high and low sensitivity.
SniffIT X1 is used for leak detection. The typical procedure is that one first inserts either helium or hydrogen into a product. Then one uses SniffIT X1all over the product, if helium or hydrogen leaks through the product the SniffIT X1 will detect the leak. Hence, this is a leak locating instrument.
