It can be used to detect leaks in pressure and vacuum systems, electrical discharge, control of tightness with ultrasonic transmitter, and internal leaks in hydraulic systems. LDE-10 comes with ultrasonic microphone, ultrasonic probe, earphone headset, extension tubes and tips, 9V battery, carrying case, and manual.
Original Press Release:
Ultrasonic Leak Detector - With LED And Audio Sound Indication
Kernco Instruments Co., Inc. is pleased to announce it's introduction of the Model LDE-10 Ultrasonic Leak Detector for use in many applications including, leaks in pressure and
vacuum systems, electrical discharge, control of tightness with ultrasonic transmitter, internal leaks in hydraulic systems, function control of steam traps and many other applications. The Model LDE-10 can be used in all industries because it is a very easy to use instrument.
Ultrasonic Detection Principle:
As a gas or liquid passes through a small restrictive opening, noise is created. While this noise is imperceptible to the ear, it is very easily located by the Model LDE-10 using the
ultrasonic microphone or the ultrasonic probe. The ultrasonic signal strength is indicated by an LED-array and an audible tone through the earphone headset. As the instrument is moved closer to the ultrasonic source, more LED's will light up. Simultaneously, the frequency of the tone rises. The optional LDF-13 Ultrasonic Transmitter is ideal for checking tightness control in non-pressurized compartments such as containers, tanks, cars, ships, etc. The transmitter is placed inside the compartment under investigation and switched on to emit an ultrasonic signal. This signal will pass through any orifice or
faulty seal and will be quickly located by the LDE-10. The instrument is very easy to use and requires no special training or skills. LDE- 10 comes complete with ultrasonic microphone, ultrasonic probe, earphone headset, extension tubes and tips, battery, carrying case and manual.
