Mass Extraction (Vacuum) Leak Testing Equipment

ME2 Mass Extraction Cart LN

Pfeiffer Vacuum's Mass Extraction Technology takes advantage of the Micro-Flow phenomena and gas expansion, which occurs while the test is conducted in a vacuum.

Pfeiffer Vacuum's Mass Extraction sensors show unmatched sensitivity for air leak testing down to 1µm defect size. Mass Extraction is thereby recognized by USP (Pharma Guideline) and ASTM (ASTM: F3287 - 17 “Nondestructive detection of leaks in packages by Mass Extraction method“).
