I am step by step disassembling all the helium leak detector I bought recently. There are several things to do.. cleaning the flanges, replacing the o-ring, checking the oil in pumps.. Ron Soyland mentioned that he disassembled also the spectrometer unit to check the filament state, so I decided to do so as well. The unit is pretty simple, I was really surprised..
The filament detail
The filament obviously shows some signs of wear, but I hope it will last for some time 😉 The oxides around it will probably contain an amount of gasses, so it will need a few hours to degas it.
