Face seal - helium leak testing

Face seal - helium leak testing

Face seal - helium leak testing

I am working with an industrial partner for my senior design class, we must isolate 4 regions on a aluminum cylinder and record helium leak rates at each location. My group is planning on using face seals. We are in the process of designing a test method for our proof of concept. Any tips, links, resources, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Face seal - helium leak testing

Not really enough information. What temperature and pressure is the helium? When you say face seals are you o-rings? If so what material?

I am surprised you have not been red flagged for student posting.
But, if I were you I would research seal manufacturer's catalogs/websites for what you are trying to do.
Your industrial partner has either has a unique configuration to seal, thereby looking to your team for a new/fresh approach to sealing or they are giving you a bone. In either case as Chpal1984 as stated, you have not provided anything to help you with.
