Ultrasound Analysis

Leak Detection

Compressed air often uses more energy than most other equipment in a plant. Leaking air lines, couplings, air tools, hoses and other defective compressed air components can be major sources of energy loss.

Ultrasound detection allows you to detect many inaudible or undetectable phenomena that other predictive tools do not detect.

The best known application for this kind of device is the detection and precise localization of gas leaks. Through the noise detected and knowledge of the pressure within the pipe, it is possible to quantify the leak rate and therefore the financial loss generated by it.

It is established that a compressor on three, in industry, only fill leaks present on the network. It means that the purchase of this type of device has a very quick return. The operation of  this device is very intuitive and simple to learn due to the limited number of buttons. Thus, the training and experience necessary to provide accurate and quality work are reduced.
