Sonic imager for leak detection

First Quarter 2020 Pneumatic systems & components

Fluke’s new ii900 is a handheld sonic industrial imager that enables maintenance teams to quickly and accurately locate air, steam, gas and vacuum leaks in compressed air systems. The straightforward, intuitive interface allows technicians to isolate the sound frequency of the leak to filter out background noise. In a matter of hours, the team can inspect an entire plant, even during peak operations. Leak identification is simple and it is easy to scan a large area quickly and even identify leaks from a distance. The ii900 enables users to ensure proper air pressure in pneumatic equipment, lower energy costs, reduce leak detection time and improve reliability on the production line. It can also delay the capital expense of purchasing an additional compressor.

With application in a wide range of industries, the Fluke ii900 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. It is specifically designed for industrial maintenance teams, plant 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. This offers a better, quicker, simpler way to check compressed air leaks, and at the same time conduct gas and vacuum leak identification.
