IGU argon analyser

Sparklike has launched Sparklike Laser Online that allows non-destructive and automated measurement of gas concentration for triple and double glazed insulating glass units, which also works with coated and laminated glass.

Sparklike Laser Online device was developed for companies wanting to conduct automated quality control, the company said. The online version is a custom-made solution, where Sparklike delivers measuring components that are integrated directly into the insulating glass line.

“The ever-growing popularity of Sparklike devices is due to the fact that they offer the IG and window manufacturers, as well as test laboratories the possibility to analyse the gas concentration of IG units in a fast, economic and non-destructive way,” Kai Niiranen, Sparklike engineer, said.

“Furthermore, with Sparklike devices, the IG manufacturers are able to confirm the proper functioning of the gas press, in an automated way, something that was not possible before. This, on the other hand, ensures that the end-user receives an IGU with the gas concentration that complies with industry norms, regulations, as well as customer expectations.”

The equipment itself consists of three different parts: a 16kg main unit, a 6kg measuring head, as well as a 10-inch touch screen display that comes with a pen.
