ORS manufactures the HSHLD™ Model 310 High Sensitivity Helium Leak Detection System

Using a Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer system for High Sensitivity Helium Leak Rate measurement to qualify your product to the latest, tighter leak rate requirements, our HSHLD™ Model 310 exceeds the capabilities of conventional mass spectrometer helium leak test technology. This new system gives you enhanced spectrometer sensitivity at a modest cost. The system is modular, automated, flexible, fast, easy to calibrate, easy to use, and is affordable. Both the FINE and GROSS leak test is performed in a single test sequence.

High Resolution Internal Vapor Analysis Services

ORS Inc. is pleased to announce the unveiling of its new HR-IVA Analyzer for testing very small volume packages. This new technology provides tremendous sensitivity to package volumes <0.01cc compared to standard Quadrupole techniques. In addition, ORS has developed innovative calibration techniques that use all metal seals for volumes ranging from 0.01cc to 1nl (1X10-6cc). A presentation at Aerospace Corporation’s Space Parts Working Group on April 4th, 2006 provides a summary of the technique, sensitivity and its unmatched acquisition speed of 20µs per Full Mass Range Scan (2 - >150 AMU).

Did you know…..?

ORS offers Reflow Soldering and Moisture Sensitivity (JEDEC J-STD-020C) analytical capabilities on devices intended for Surface Mount Technology applications.

Solder Reflow and Moisture Sensitivity Testing Services (JEDEC J-STD-020C) provide ORS clients the ability to subject components to a controlled introduction to moisture followed by board-level temperature cycling to evaluate the effects of Pb free processes. The calibrated seven-zone convection/conduction oven provides precise control over reflow processes and simulations ensuring that devices are not unduly exposed to thermal stress and that all packages can be successfully and reliably surface mounted. Sample preconditioning by on-site temperature and humidity chambers enables ORS to introduce moisture to non-hermetic packages. Following pre-conditioning, moisture sensitivity of the device can be evaluated by post-reflow reliability testing (ie. X-ray, C-SAM). Profiles used at ORS are based on JEDEC standards to ensure quality solder connections for all types of SMT packages.

The acquisition of this technique in addition to other analytical methods such as real-time x-ray, scanning acoustic microscopy and electrical testing establishes ORS as an equipped leader in the component analysis industry.

ORS has 3D Capability

X-Ray Computed Tomography (CT), commonly referred to as 3-D imaging, is a computer model generated from multiple 2-D X ray images. ORS currently has two CT systems with different design and capabilities to accommodate a broad range of samples sizes and configurations.
