What is Ultrasound Leak Detection?

Ultrasound leak detection covers a wide range of leaks:

  • Pressure
  • Vacuum
  • Any type of gas

As any gas (air, oxygen, nitrogen, etc.) passes through a leak orifice, it generates a turbulent flow with detectable high-frequency components, this is what an Ultrasonic leak detector picks up on and finds the leak by;

  • The directional 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
