THE Fluke ii900 handheld sonic industrial imager offers fast, simple detection of compressed air, steam, gas and vacuum leaks in compressed air systems.

That’s according to local distributors Comtest, which said the intuitive interface allows technicians to isolate sound frequency of leaks to filter out background noise. “In only hours, maintenance techs inspect the plant, even during peak-operations,” the company said in a statement.

“Using SoundSight, this industrial imager locates issues using sound. Leak identification with SoundMap, displayed in colour over visual image of equipment allows fast visual location. With the visual image, it is easy to scan a large area quickly and even identify leaks from a distance.”

The Fluke ii900 is specifically designed for industrial maintenance teams, maintenance leads, plant maintenance managers and plant operations managers, who rely on compressed air, gas or vacuum in their routine operations.

Application include:

Manufacturing: aerospace, automotive, glass, machinery, instrumentation and appliances, plastic and rubber, mining and mineral processing

Process manufacturing: cement, chemical processing, food and beverage, and pulp, paper and wood.

“With minimal training, technicians can check air leaks in routine maintenance. The ii900 means a comprehensive check for compressed air leaks, while simultaneously conducting gas/vacuum leak identification,” the company said.
