“Leaks exist and they can be costly if you detect them too late, or not at all”
SONOCHEK is a digital ultrasonic testing device to detect inaudible waves and frequencies in the air or in a metal machine frame. It is primarily used to detect leaks in any industrial air and gas pressure pipes and vacuum systems.
Its detecting range reaches from 20 up to 100 kHz. These frequencies are inaudible to human ears, but SONOCHEK can detect them and make them audible and visible, while specifying the leak and evaluating the total amount of loss, all of which can be combined in a full report. An integrated camera and microphone enable the engineer to comment on his findings and refine the final report.
SONOCHEK comes with two apps for the detection and analysis of leaks and other anomalies:
SONOLEAK: Automatic leak analysis and evaluation of the amount of loss caused by the leakage according to five different rating levels.
High-performance airborne and structure-borne sensors and accessories are available in various product configurations. For package information, please contact us or request information.
Airborne sound sensor DBS10 with 3 different horns: Find and evaluate leaks in pipes and at windows, doors, etc. Detect electrical partial discharge and insulation damage
Structure-borne sensor DBS20 (optional) with integrated IR temperature sensor, magnet adapter and stinger probe: Monitoring of ultrasound emitted by rotating machine parts e.g. bearings, monitoring of lubrication states, functional check of condensate drains and valves
Parabolic long-range sensor DBS30 (optional): Leak detection from a distance of up to 25 meters
Ultrasound emitter DBT10 (optional): Air tightness checks on windows, doors and containers. Also used in shipbuilding and aircraft construction, road and rail vehicles. The intensity of the signal can be adjusted depending on the environmental sound level
The DATAVIEWER PC software (optional) enables analysts to save time by identifying defects at first sight through the clear visualization of data in level graphs and spectrograms showing ultrasound phenomena such as the status of steam traps or the type of partial electrical discharge. Users can also easily replay recordings and compare reports e.g. of identical bearings.
The DATAVIEWER software can be easily installed on a Windows-PC or tablet (min. requirement Windows 7) for on-site evaluation. Export to CSV format is fully supported for data archiving and trending.
