Ultrasound Airborne & Structure-borne

Ultrasound Airborne & Structure-borne: What is Ultrasound?

Ultrasound leak detection covers a wide range of leaks: pressure or vacuum and any gas. Sound dependent, ultrasound instruments detect turbulent flow produced as the fluid (liquid or gas) moves from the high-pressure side to the low-pressure side of a leak.

Ultrasound leak inspection is especially beneficial in areas where there is a saturation of gases or where a wide variety of gases, pressurised vessels and vacuum processes exist.

  • Compressed air leaks – Energy Saving
  • Heat exchanger tubes / plates
  • Faulty steam traps – Energy Saving
  • Passing isolation valves
  • Low-level cavitation
  • Electrical.  Arcing, tracking and corona
