Vacuum Tube leak Detector Kit
Simple test equipment used by fabrication shops in the repair, re-tubing and assessment of boilers and heat exchangers. This kit is used to find leaking tubes within a pressure vessel to recognize which tubes need to be replaced, pierced and plugged. Easy to operate, by sealing the far end of each tube with a rubber tube plug. Push the rubber nozzle into the tube. Cycle the unit which will create a vacuum inside the tube. If the tube does not hold vacuum, the tube is defective.

Operating Instructions:
Connect the air supply with a minimum of 90 psi. Insert the plugging T Handle with the appropriate seal to one end of the tube to be tested. Insert the vacuum gun at the other end of the same tube.
Operate the slide valve on the vacuum gun to create a vacuum within the tube.
Shut the slide valve when the required pressure is reached. Hold in position for a few seconds. If the gauge shows a consistent pressure, no leak is evident.
If a drop in pressure is witnessed then it is evident a leaking tube has been found within the pressure vessel.
