Ultrasonic leak detector

Fourth Quarter 2019 Pneumatic systems & components

SKF’s TKSU 10 ultrasonic leak detector helps users to quickly find leakages in compressed air or vacuum systems. The instrument is very simple to use and features adjustable sensitivity and intuitive guidance for superior leak detection results. Any compressed air system can experience leaks, which amplify the load on compressors and increase costs. The TKSU 10 helps users to easily find leaks from a distance, even in noisy industrial environments, via its ultrasound measurement sensor. The built-in LED display assists the user in adjusting sensitivity and shows the measured ultrasound noise from leaking air, allowing the quantification of leaks and prioritisation of repairs.

It is easy to use and no training is required. The leak detection can be done from a distance in noisy industrial environments. The colour LED display assists in adjusting sensitivity settings and shows measurement values. The unit reduces energy and maintenance costs via leak identification and repair. It is a lightweight, handheld device with industrial headset included. It has an independently adjustable sensor sensitivity and headset volume. The flexible probe helps find leaks in difficult-to-access locations. The headset features a neck-band design to wear with a protective helmet.

The TKSU 10 is designed for use in all industries utilising compressed air, and it is particularly recommended for paper and chemical industries, as well as workshops with air-driven power tools.
