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
