Sparklike Handheld™ 3.0

Enable non-destructive analysis for standard double glazed IGUs.

About Sparklike Handheld™ 3.0

Sparklike Handheld™ 3.0 is the practical and quick method to test IG gas concentration. The technology is based on plasma emission spectroscopy. A high voltage spark is launched in the IG unit’s cavity causing a light emission which is observed and analyzed further. The device is portable and battery operated, thus being practical and quick to use with a measurement time of 2 seconds! Thanks to its small size, it is easy to get a fast reading of gas concentration, whether it’s argon or krypton. The user can simply place the device against the unit, press the button and receive an instant result with high accuracy. Sparklike Handheld™ 3.0 (formerly known as Gasglass Handheld) has become the industry standard for non-destructive measurement – and used by insulating glass manufacturers, window and door manufacturers and testing laboratories worldwide.
