Cologne-based INFICON is one of the world's leading developers, producers and suppliers of instruments and devices for leak testing. The leak detectors are primarily used in demanding industrial processes in production and quality control, where they cover a wide range of applications. INFICON's main customers include manufacturers of air conditioning and refrigeration equipment, the automotive and automotive supply industries, the semiconductor industry, and manufacturers of leak testing equipment. However, service companies are also happy to make frequent use of the testing equipment from Cologne. As part of HANNOVER MESSE 2022, INFICON is now exclusively showcasing the ELT3000, the world's first and only testing system of its kind.

According to INFICON, the ELT3000 is the only test system to date that can directly detect leaking electrolyte from battery cells without first having to infer leakage from other test parameters. Based on mass spectrometer technology, the ELT3000 is actually capable of detecting leaks thousands of times smaller than conventional pressure testing methods. For battery manufacturers, this opens up the possibility of making serious forecasts about battery lifetimes of up to ten years. With the intuitive ELT3000, INFICON offers manufacturers of lithium-ion battery cells in particular a unique solution for identifying leaks. Thanks to its modular design, the ELT3000 can also be easily integrated into automated processes.
