About the 1 Day Application Leak Inspection Course

Using the guidelines set out by ISO:18436-8 for the Category 1 criteria for Ultrasound Leak Inspection, this course is a focused 1-day course specifically for Leak Inspection using ultrasound equipment.

From service companies who provide leak surveys or any industrial maintenance departments to personnel just interested in becoming more knowledgeable in leak inspection, this is a course for everyone.

What is Ultrasound Leak Detection?

Ultrasound leak detection covers a wide range of leaks:

  • Pressure
  • Vacuum
  • Any type of gas

When gas moves around from high to low-pressure areas of a leak, it disrupts the air and effectively causes a sort of turbulence, ultrasound instruments detect that turbulent flow and use this to find the location of the leak in the following ways

  • The direction of sound waves makes locating the source easy
  • The intensity of the signal: the closer you get, the more sound you detect
  • Fixed frequency, making it effective to locate even in a loud factory environment

What’s Covered in the Course?

• Education on why leak inspections benefit companies
• The principles of Ultrasound
• The physics behind different types of Leak
• Inspection Procedures/Techniques
• Quantification/Reporting from Leak Surveys
