The LD 500 leak detector measures the ultrasound generated by compressed air, steam, gas, and vacuum leaks, as well as partial discharge on insulators, transformers, switchgear, high-voltage lines (corona effect). Ultrasound, which is inaudible to the human ear, is amplified and mixed into the audible sound frequency range by the LD 500. This enables you to precisely locate the compressed air leak (ultrasonic source) via the headphones and the camera image, even in noisy environments.
With its advanced sensor technology, the leak detector can locate even the smallest leaks (0.1 l/min or 0,003 cfm, equivalent to approx. 1$ p.a.) at great distances with ease. Simultaneously, it is possible to adjust the sensitivity range of the LD 500 either automatically or manually in order to locate leaks more easily, even during the production facilities’ operation.
After a successful leak detection you can save a picture of the leak with the integrated camera and store all the necessary information about the leak via the built-in touchscreen on the device, directly at leak location. This includes all relevant information required for the leak repair.
After being done with the leak survey, all data can be exported via a USB stick and imported into the CS Leak Reporter software. With the CS Leak Reporter software’s help, individual leaks can be prioritized according to size and resulting costs. All essential leakage data will be managed through the software on the computer.
