Gascheck G handheld helium leak detector

Gas leak detector for rapid, accurate gas leak measurement

The GasCheck G gas leak detector represents the latest in gas detection technology. Its advanced system of micro thermal conductivity enables advanced sensitivity for the rapid, effective detection of gas leaks down to cc/sec, mg/m³ or ppm levels.

Designed for the search and location of gas leaks, the GasCheck G leak detector provides you with effective detection of almost any gas or gas mixture. Robust and reliable, the GasCheck G leak detector gives stable, repeatable readings of the detected gas.

The instrument’s LCD display, LED indicator, and audible sounder clearly indicates the gas leak present.

GasCheck G automatically zeros to the ambient air around it when switched on and is ready to detect immediately. The instrument’s easy to use graphical interface and intuitive keypad allows for simple function, selection, and adjustment.

Upgradeable throughout the range, the GasCheck G gas leak detector is available in three distinct versions; G1, G2 and G3 with varied capabilities. Features can be easily added to upgrade the instrument without it having to be returned to the factory.

Ion Science also offers a leading range of leak detectors:
