Why should we select Exair Ultrasonic Leak Detector?

Now a days Compressed air is a very important medium for transfer of energy in industrial processes. So Compressed air leaks can be a common issue in various industrial and also commercial settings. The main problems can arise due to these leaks are significant energy waste, increased operating costs, and reduced system efficiency. Here's some information on compressed air leaks and how to address them:

  1. Impact of compressed air leaks: Compressed air leaks can produce several negative effects on your system and even on operations also. Also these leaks can reduce the overall system pressure, leading to decreased equipment performance and gradually slower operation. Also Leaks can also cause the compressor to run more frequently, increasing energy consumption and operational costs. Furthermore, these leaks contribute to unnecessary wear and tear on the compressor and other system components, potentially leading to equipment failures and maintenance issues.

  2. Energy and cost implications: Leaks can result in substantial energy waste as compressed air is an expensive form of energy. Leaks can account for 20-30% of the total compressed air usage in a system, according to industry estimates and by addressing these leaks, you can significantly reduce energy consumption and lower operating costs.

  3. Identifying compressed air leaks: It is very common to identify the leaks as compressed air leaks are often characterized by hissing or whistling sounds near the equipment or pipelines. Also it may be noticed a decrease in system pressure, increased compressor cycling, or a higher energy bill without any apparent reason. Conducting regular inspections and using tools like ultrasonic leak detectors can help identify and locate leaks accurately.

Ultrasonic Leak Detector

The Exair Model 9207 Ultrasonic Leak Detector (ULD) is a hand-held, high quality instrument that can locate costly leaks in a compressed air system. When a leak is present, an audible tone can be heard (with the use of the included earbuds) and the LED display will light. Testing the various unions, pipes, valves and fittings of a complete installation can be done quickly and effectively at distances up to 20' (6.1m) away!

Why should we select Exair Ultrasonic Leak Detector?

  • 1. Detects any pressurized air leak up to 20 feet (6.1m) away. 2. Converts ultrasound to an audible frequency 3. LED display confirms the leak location 4. Detects leaks in noisy industrial environments 5. Sensitivity controls provide accurate detection 6. Not affected by contaminants or windy conditions 7. Includes accessories to detect leaks in hard to reach areas 8. Rugged carrying case 9. Complies with IEC 61326-1!
