March 31, 2014 - Used to detect unforeseen defects in sealed hybrids and MCMs, Krypton-85 radioisotope leak testing meets military standards 750 1071.10 and 883 1014.14. Krypton-85 screening with Radiflo Mark VI Pressurization Unit involves 6 x 20 in. test chamber, which can apply pressures up to 110 psia for testing hermetically sealed packages. Suited for military and aerospace applications, testing helps eliminate risks and reduce potential latent failures.

CHATSWORTH, Calif. -- NATEL, a leading microelectronics solutions company, now offers reliable Krypton-85 radioisotope leak testing, an advanced technology used to detect the unforeseen defects in sealed Hybrids and MCMs.

"At NATEL, we constantly offer unique solutions to ensure reliable parts are handed to our customers," explains President/CEO Sudesh Arora. "Krypton-85 radioisotope leak testing is one of these solutions. It is a specialized technology with broad demand among our Military and Aerospace customers, and complements our other leak detection screening capabilities."

NATEL offers Krypton-85 screening with the industry-leading Radiflo Mark VI Pressurization Unit. It meets the latest military standard 750 1071.10 and 883 1014.14.  The test chamber, with dimensions of 6 inches by 20 inches, can apply pressures of up to 110 psia, for testing hermetically sealed packages.

NATEL's Krypton-85 radioisotope testing capability is currently bringing solutions to our customers by eliminating risks and reducing potential latent failures.
