Vacuum Instruments Corporation is a pioneer in providing state-of-the-art leak detection solutions for diverse applications and industries. Our systems have ensured the safety and performance of countless products that we use in our daily lives from the cars we drive to the air conditioners in our houses, the pacemakers in our bodies, and the satellites we launch into space.

VIC successfully combines new technological developments and possibilities with our deep knowledge of our customers' requirements. VIC engineers design mass spectrometers. They build gas handling systems. They design and build complete state-of-the-art leak detection systems that are truly cost-effective.
A History of Innovation

Past collaborations include participating with the Argonne National Laboratory and University of Michigan in the development of next generation technologies such as Speed of Sound sensing technique and Photo Acoustic technology, both under the auspices of the National Center for Manufacturing Science (NCMS).

Another collaboration with Brookhaven National Laboratory yielded Ultra Sensitive Atmospheric Sampling (USAS™). This revolutionary technology tested to hard vacuum leak rate specifications without any need for costly vacuum components. The resulting patented USAS detector, was developed and manufactured by VIC Leak Detection, and was 10,000 times more sensitive than existing helium mass spectrometer leak detectors at the time. It was also smaller, easier to maintain and use, and one-third the cost.

Innovation, Today & Tomorrow

While one group of VIC engineers is developing next generation leak test technologies, another team is automating the leak test systems in order to provide more efficient and more reliable manufacturing operations for its clients.

The Scepter packaging provides a standardized solution for leak testing equipment and is market recognized as the most robust and accurate leak test system. Scepter Hard Vac provides the industries fastest delivery times, system frames with chambers ready-to-go. The Scepter uses Patent Pending test methodology completely test the integrity of entire Co-Axial sections in one testing sequence and provides customized tooling completing the link form the product to system.

VIC continues to develop and refine its industry standard leak detectors, gas handling equipment and accessories with a new high-performance tracer gas portable leak detector, industrial solutions such as the Dual Gas MD-490S sniffer with SmartCharge™ (“the genius in tracer gas backfill equipment”), test stands, and ultra-efficient industrial air leak testers such as the VIC-Torr Series.

Innovation is the soul of success, and Vacuum Instruments Corporation is the world leader in its field. That means that VIC engineers can select the best existing tool—or design a new state-of-the-art tool—for current and future needs, regardless of complexity or manufacturing environment.
