Ultrasonic Leak Detector for Compressed-Air Systems

June 29, 2023

exair-ultrasonic-compressed-air-leak-detectorExair has debuted a new ultrasonic leak detector (ULD), a hand-held instrument engineered to help locate the source of costly leaks in compressed-air systems. Use the ULD, upgraded in look and function, to identify and pinpoint costly leaks, allow quick repair and enjoy subsequent cost savings. Testing the various unions, pipes, valves and fittings of a complete installation can be done quickly and effectively at distances to 20 ft. away.

If such a leak exists, high-pressure gas creates high-frequency turbulence when moving into an area with lower pressure, creating an ultrasonic or “white-noise” sound beyond the range of human hearing. The ULD detects these vibrations and generates an audible sound through supplied headphones, and also indicates intensity via a front-facing LED display. The ULD can be adjusted to filter out background noise in busier plants, with buttons to fine-tune sensitivity. 

This new model offers a heightened ability to detect leaks in hard-to-reach areas while also complying with the IEC 61326-1 standard that designates its ability to operate in the electromagnetic environments typically found in industrial plants.
