***NEW***ELT3000 Electrolyte Battery Leak Detector

Unique Leak Testing Technology through Detection of Electrolyte Solvents


With the ELT3000, INFICON offers a unique test system for battery cells that helps you comply with the ISO9000 standard. It is the only system that determines leakage directly, rather than through indirect parameters (like pressure changes). Based on mass spectrometer technology ,it can find leaks 1,000 times smaller than the ones found with traditional pressure test methods. The new ELT3000 helps you to guarantee battery lifetimes of up to 10 years.


Operating the system is intuitive – no costly training courses are needed. The modular design makes it easy to integrate the ELT3000 into your automated processes.


  • Quality through innovative-end-of-line testing

    • Enables unmatched high measurement reliability- no missing leaks
    • High sensitivity allows life time of up to 10 years for lithium-ion battery cells.


  • Flexible chamber

    • Non-destructive leak test under vacuum also for soft pouch cells
  • Intuitive operation

    • No time-consuming training needed
  • Fieldbus interfaces

    • For easy integration into automated production processes
  • High throughput due to simultaneous leak testing of several battery cells at a time

    • Minimization of production costs through efficient leak testing


Typical Applications

  • Manual or automatic leak test of lithium-ion battery cells

    • Soft pouch cells
    • Rigid prismatic cells
    • Round cells
    • Coin cells
