After 15 years, Leybold is launching the PHOENIX 4, a new family of helium leak detectors to meet the increasing quality requirements. This innovative product is equally suited to the demands of research and development as for those of industrial applications - from securing the ultra-high vacuum demands in CERN's particle accelerator, to industrial applications such as leak detection in the Hyperloop vacuum transport system or for semiconductor production.

Functional design concept

With its ergonomic design and improved measuring characteristics, the fourth generation Phoenix sets new standards - especially in terms of operating comfort, response times, helium sensitivity and reliability. Moreover, the stationary and mobile models are easier to handle and maintain than their predecessors. For example, it is now possible to change the filter without removing the housing. This compact, versatile helium leak detector is available in three classes, the Phoenix Vario, Phoenix Quadro, and Phoenix Magno, which are designed for various customer applications with their different pumping speed configurations.

Phoenix 4 can be operated via a color touch display or wirelessly with any Internet-capable mobile device, due to the integrated web server.

The number of interfaces for data acquisition, communication and system integration has been increased. Additional communication and bus interfaces are now integrated directly at the leak detector alongside with new, optional interface modules.

The entire Phoenix-4 series is based on a uniform technology platform and contains the identical measuring system, not least for economic reasons. The models and versions are differentiated by the backing pumps and pumping speed configurations.

As the smallest in its class, the Phoenix 4 Vario is a suitable space-saving system in special research applications. The designers went without an integrated backing pump leaving more flexibility, not least due to its low weight of 30 kilograms. The next variant in line, the Phoenix 4 Quadro, has an oil-sealed TRIVAC rotary vane vacuum pump as backing pump.
