Mission accomplished!
Finally, a fast, intrinsically safe leak detector
The portable Extrima Ex certified Hydrogen Leak
Detector is the ultimate explosion proof instrument for
leak testing in the toughest of environments, including
hazardous locations such as Zone 0 (corresponding to
Division 1).
for fast homing in on suspected leak areas and exact leak
pinpointing and quantification. The recommended tracer gas
is a low cost standard forming gas (5% hydrogen and 95%
nitrogen). It is non-flammable, non-corrosive, non-toxic and
environmentally friendly.
Extrima Leak Detector brings the Sensistor accuracy,
flexibility and simplicity into a new range of demanding
applications. It is certified for use in Zone 0, classification
Ex ia, IIC T3 with ATEX, IECEx, NEPSI and CSA
Versatile and easy to operate
Extrima is designed to withstand rough handling in the
field and has a shoulder strap for easy carrying. It has a
chargeable Lithium Ion battery providing up to twelve hours
of operation. The new ergonomically designed hand probe
with a built in leak/no leak LED indicator, together with
the auto-range function and short recovery time, allows

Complete Gas Injection Kit
A complete set of accessories for simple
tracer gas injection and leak detection
in fuel tanks. Includes Injection Pads in
two sizes, Injection Fix Kit and Injection
Panel with its protective casing.
Extrima is the ideal choice for a wide range of industrial leak detection applications.
PROCESS industry
Extremely high demands on tightness are often made in the
process industry. Pipe systems, valves and containers are
just a few examples. In the context of both production and
service, hydrogen leak detection provides a fast and reliable
method for tightness control and leak detection.
■ Leak detection with portable equipment
■ High sensitivity
■ Superior method to bubble testing
High demands on safety and harsh environmental
conditions make Extrima the ideal instrument for leak
detection on pipes, valves and containers, both in
maintenance and assembly situations on oil rigs and
■ Leak detection with portable equipment
■ High sensitivity
■ High reliability
With Extrima the aviation industry has a safe, accurate and
yet simple solution for leak testing of complete fuel systems
as well as oxygen supply and fire extinguishing systems, both
in production and maintenance. Extensive tests have shown
that using Extrima can reduce the average time by more than
50 % for identifying, locating and repairing a leak on a fighter
jet during maintenance.
■ Clean and dry test method
■ Exact location of invisible leaks
■ High sensitivity
■ Inexpensive tracer gas
■ Complete system for gas injection
power production
INFICON hydrogen leak detectors are the natural choice
for leak testing on hydrogen-cooled generators and fuel
cells. Thanks to its high sensitivity, Extrima can detect even
minute leaks with pinpoint accuracy.
■ High sensitivity
■ Simple and accurate location of leaks
■ Inexpensive tracer gas
Injection Fix Kit
Simplifies tracer gas injection on
uneven surfaces. Includes plastic
tubes, knife, injection plug, mylar film,
adhesive and sealant.
Antistatic Sensor Caps
Protects the sensor against liquids
and particles.
CX21 Probe Cables
In lengths of 3 and 5 meters (9.8 and
16.4 ft.). Extends the measurement
capabilities in narrow spaces.
Hand Probe,
with rigid neck
An option to the standard probe for
exact leak location.
Reference Leaks
For calibration and function tests of
the Extrima.
Injection Pads
For backtracing leaks in fuel tanks.
Adheres well to flat surfaces. Small (60 mm
/ 2.3 in.) and Large (150 mm / 5.9 in.).
