Easy way to detect compressed air, steam and gas leaks

September 2019 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

Comtest has announced Fluke’s new ii900, a handheld sonic industrial imager that enables maintenance teams to locate air, steam, gas and vacuum leaks. The intuitive interface allows technicians to isolate the sound frequency of the leak and to filter out background noise. In a matter of hours, the team can inspect the entire plant, even during peak operations.

Using SoundSight technology, this industrial imager offers a new way to locate issues using sound. Leak identification is simple: a SoundMap is displayed in colour over a visual image of the equipment allowing for fast location. With the visual image, it is easy to scan a large area quickly and even possible identify leaks from a distance.

The ii900 enables users to do more with existing air compressors, for example:

• Delay the capital expense of purchasing an additional compressor.

• Ensures proper air pressure to pneumatic equipment.

• Lower energy costs (optimisation of compressed air budget).

• Reduce leak detection time.

• Improve reliability on the production line.

This new instrument makes leak detection part of a typical maintenance routine, for example, the training of a maintenance team is possible in a matter of minutes and provides for the validation of repairs.

Finally, it is specifically designed for industrial maintenance teams, maintenance managers and plant operations managers, who rely on compressed air, gas or vacuum in their routine operations. With minimal training, technicians can begin checking for air leaks as part of their typical maintenance routine.

The Fluke ii900 finds application in the following industries: manufacturing: aerospace, automotive, glass, plastic and rubber, mining and mineral processing, cement, chemical processing, food and beverage pulp and paper.
