Identifying Leaks in Vacuum Systems

Vacuum leaks manifest themselves differently than line leaks from compressed air systems. Audible noise, bubble testing and sometimes smells are common for pressurized systems but none of these tactics work for vacuum leaks. Vacuum leaks can result from physical holes in structures, contaminated seals or even gases that emit from the vessel walls.
