Using the Ultrasonic Leak Detector
In a plant where loud noise levels exist, it is very difficult to locate leaks by merely listening for them. Most plant noises are in the normal audible range of human hearing, while air escaping from a small orifice is ultrasonic. The ULD can be adjusted to filter out background noise using the three sensitivity settings of X1, X10 and X100 along with an “on/off” thumb wheel for fine sensitivity adjustment. The Model 9061 Ultrasonic Leak Detector quickly pinpoints a costly leak in a noisy, industrial environment.

The parabola or tubular extension (shown below) can also be attached to the ULD to mask out intense background noise. The ULD detects only the ultrasonic sounds that are generated.

Ultrasonic Leak DetectorUltrasound is directional in transmission and is loudest at the source. Turbulence created by the air forced through a small orifice generates ultrasonic sound. This emitted sound is called “white noise” and occurs when the air moves from a high pressure area such as a pipe or vessel and escapes to a low pressure area such as the room.

The Ultrasonic Leak Detector converts the turbulent flow to a frequency that can be heard using the headphones. As the ULD moves closer to the leak, more LEDs on the display light to confirm the source of the leak. In some cases, the suspected leak is in a hot area and/or close to moving parts. The tubular extension and parabola make it possible to probe these difficult locations from a distance to isolate the leak.

Pay For Your Ultrasonic Leak Detector

Consider one small leak that is equivalent to a 1/16” diameter hole. At 80 PSIG, it consumes 3.8 SCFM or 108 SLPM.
Most large plants know their air cost. If you don’t know your actual cost per 1,000 SCF, a reasonable average is $.25 per 1,000 SCF (28,329 SL).
Dollars consumed per hour = SCFM consumed x 60 minutes x cost/1,000 SCF
= 3.8 x 60 x .25/1,000
= $.06 per hour
= $1.44 per 24 hour period
= $10.08 per week
= $524.16 per year
