The Ultrasonic Leak Detector (ULD), available from Hybralec Industries , is a hand-held instrument that can locate leaks in a compressed air system. A person using this detector needs to aim it in the direction of the suspected leak. If a leak is present, an audible tone can be heard with the use of the headphones and the LED display will light up.
Plants that are not maintained can easily waste up to 30% of the compressor output through leaks that go undetected. The use of the Ultrasonic Leak Detector enables the reduction of overall operating costs.
Ultrasonic sound is a range of sound that is above the human hearing capacity. Sound from 20kHz to 100kHz that cannot be heard is called ultrasonic. The Model 9061 Ultrasonic Leak Detector converts ultrasonic sound emissions to a range that is audible by people.
