The ULD-1 Ultrasonic Leak Detector is designed for pinpointing air leakages, especially in noisy locations, where the leak is not audible by ear.
The noise, which is created by air escaping from a leak, is detected by an ultrasonic receiver and converted to an audible sound and is displayed with an optical indication on the instrument.
It is also useful for locating leaks in compressed-air systems where air escapes at frequency which humans cannot hear. For example:
For leakages with more than Ø 0.1 mm. Pressure of 1 bar is recommended. For leakages with a diameter smaller than 0.1 mm, a higher pressure is recommended (e. g. 8 bar)
Switch the leak-detect on by turning the potentiometer “Volume” clockwise until a light noise can be heard. The first yellow LED is on.
Move the unit with the sensor into the direction of the tubes or pipes which are to be controlled. The leakage is located when the sound has increased and the red LED`s are illuminated.
For difficult to reach locations we offer a longer goose neck probe as well as a parabolic dish with integrated ultrasonic sensor and laser pointer.
The integrated laser pointer makes it easy to trace leaks over distances from 20m to more than 100m for bigger leaks.
The parabolic dish is made of transparent plastic, so that the leaks are easily visible. All incoming ultrasonic waves are reflected from the dish and focused at the ultrasonic receiver. Noise is ignored.
