Robotics in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning

Automate your manual process easily

Robotic leak detection with 3D camera

Revolutionize your leak testing in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (RAC) systems with cutting-edge robotic technology. Our commitment to innovation has led to the development of advanced solutions that address the challenges of detecting even the smallest leaks, automating manual processes, and ensuring the generation of reliable data and quality improvement.


1. Reliable Sniffing Method

Traditionally, manual sniffing processes have been prone to inconsistencies. We have developed a reliable sniffing method that detects the smallest leaks with precision. Our solution not only improves accuracy but also provides a consistent approach to leak detection.


2. Automating Manual Processes

Say goodbye to the unreliability of manual sniffing. INFICON has introduced robotics to automate the leak detection process. This breakthrough not only enhances efficiency, but also reduces the dependency on manual labor. Our robotic solution ensures a seamless and automated workflow, eliminating the uncertainties associated with traditional manual methods.


3. Generating Reliable Data

Accurate and reliable data is the cornerstone of effective leak testing. With our advanced technology, we not only automate processes, but also guarantee the generation of dependable data. The integration of robotics ensures consistent and precise measurements, contributing to improved overall quality.


Our Solutions

We have developed special tools and technologies for RAC leak testing: 

3D Scanner Imagine System: To detect joints and guide robotic arms accurately, we have introduced a state-of-the-art 3D scanner imaging system. This innovation ensures unparalleled precision in leak detection.

Optimized Sniffer Tips: We have developed optimized sniffer tips (I-TIP) capable of detecting the smallest leaks, even below 0.5g/a. These tips, designed for both manual and robotic use, enhance the effectiveness of the leak detection process.

 I-TIP encloses joints for superior leak detection, providing better quality and less operator dependency.

Robotic Measurements

Our robotic measurements, featuring a 0.33g/a R600a leak, showcase the capabilities of our technology. With a 1.5-second stay time over the leak and 25 defined measurements for each leak position, our robotic solutions redefine efficiency and accuracy.

Comparative Analysis

In the quest for excellence, we conducted a thorough comparison between the normal sniffer tip SL3000, I-TIP SENS, and I-TIP RUGGED. This analysis aims to provide insights into the strengths and applications of each technology, guiding our customers in choosing the most suitable solution for their specific needs.
