Find Production Air Leaks with METPOINT® LKD
Are you aware how much leakage drives up the energy costs in production? Leaks often remain undetected for long periods, as they are invisible and are, many times, difficult or impossible to hear without the proper equipment. Such undetected leaks become real cost drivers due to increased energy consumption and added maintenance cost.
When compressed air escapes into the ambient air via a leak, ultrasonic waves develop at the leak. This ultrasound cannot be perceived by the human ear. The METPOINT® LKD leak detector makes use of this fact. The developing ultrasound is picked up via the external sensor. The electronics in the METPOINT® LKD evaluate the intensity of the ultrasound and indicates the result as a pointer deflection on the display. In addition, the ultrasound is internally converted into audible frequencies. You can hear the result in the headphones.
Using modern ultrasound technology, the mobile METPOINT® LKD leak detector locates even minute leaks in your system. Once a leak is found, the repair, in many cases can simply be tightening fittings, repairing hoses or replacing worn out components.
Looking at the attached figures, it is easy to visualize the potential savings of maintaining a leak free compressed air system.
You can achieve maximum cost savings at minimum expense. The METPOINT® LKD makes sure that your production processes are environmentally friendly and run at the highest energy efficiency level, ensuring the long-term profitability of your business.
