With the growing importance of alternative drive systems, the number of leak testing tasks in production is also increasing. For example, the traction batteries of Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) must remain protected from water and humidity for ten years or more. And fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) also have their own unique sealing requirements in industrial production.
INFICON's comprehensive e-book sheds light on all these new leak testing tasks in the automotive sector. It explains what limit leakage rates have to be tested against and discusses which methods are suitable for a particular application, be it battery cells, battery housings or cooling circuits, fuel cells, hydrogen tanks or electric motors. The new e-book even covers leak testing for electronic components, control modules, and ADAS sensors.
