Leak detection with METPOINT LKD

Having your compressed air station optimised by the specialists of our service team has many advantages, as compressed air is an expensive utility. There is nearly always room for improvement, and the achievable cost savings for the operator are generally high. Operative costs can be brought down substantially, for instance by eliminating leakage. Leakage rates of 30% or higher are quite common, and leak detection on site carried out by specialists quickly pays for itself.

Functional principle

Given the high pressure in the compressed air system, any leak results in compressed air escaping the system.

This escaping air causes ultrasonic vibration (approx. 40 kHz) that can be detected with the METPOINT LKD and converted into audible sound. The strength of the ultrasonic vibration is indicated on the display.
