Leak Detection

Find leaks quickly and easily with Ultrasound technology

Ultrasound leak detection covers a wide range of leaks: pressure or vacuum and any type of gas.

Sound dependent: ultrasound instruments detect the turbulent flow produced as the gas moves from the high-pressure side to the low-pressure side of a leak. Using the characteristics of Ultrasound, locating leaks is fast and easy to do so because of:

  • Directionality of sound waves makes locating the source easy
  • Intensity of signal: the closer you get, the more sound you detect
  • Fixed frequency, making it effective to locate even in a loud factory environment!

In many facilities Ultrasound detection instruments are used for safety, environmental, energy or quality assurance programs:

  • Compressed air costs money! Avoid energy loss by fixing your leaks
  • Industry average 31% of energy use can be avoided by just fixing leaks!
  • Reduce running hours / wear and tear on existing equipment
  • In many cases a lower spec or shut down of a compressor can be the result
  • Specialty gasses



o Cost avoidance, expensive to buy or produce o Environmental impact of certain gasses

  • Production efficiency

o  Achieve better efficiency of the process

o  Run pressures or vacuum pressures at desired levels

  • Inspection efficiency & inspector safety
