Exair ultrasonic leak detector Model 9207 for compressed air systems

November 1, 2023  By  Anthony Capkun

November 23, 2023 – Up to 30% of the compressed air generated in industrial plants is wasted through leaks that go undetected, says Exair, adding that its hand-held ultrasonic leak detector (ULD) will help you locate the source(s) of those costly leaks.

Model 9207 offers a heightened ability to detect leaks in hard-to-reach areas while complying with the IEC 61326-1 standard that designates its ability to operate in electromagnetic environments, typical of industrial plants.

High-pressure gases create high-frequency turbulence when moving into an area with lower pressure, creating an ultrasonic or “white noise” sound that is beyond the range of human hearing, explains the company.

The ULD can detect these vibrations, creating an audible sound through supplied headphones, as well as indicating intensity via a front-facing LED display as it moves closer to the leak origin.
