AIRBORNE ULTRASONIC INSPECTIONS
ThermaSonic Australia utilizes UE Systems digital ultrasonic inspection systems detection equipment, the world’s most technologically advanced. UE Systems has been the internationally recognized leader in the development of airborne ultrasound detection equipment since 1973.
Airborne ultrasound is used throughout the world for condition monitoring, energy conservation and quality assurance programs.
Airborne ultrasound technology provides solutions for locating a variety of potential problems in plants. The three main areas are leak detection, mechanical inspection/trending and electrical inspection.
Instruments based on airborne ultrasound sense high frequency sounds produced by leaks, electrical emissions and mechanical operations. They translate these sounds down into the audible range by an electronic process called heterodyning where they are heard through headphones and observed as intensity increments, typically decibels, on a display panel.
Airborne ultrasound instruments, often referred to as “ultrasonic translators”, provide information three ways:
- qualitative with the ability to “hear” ultrasounds through a noise isolating headphone;
- quantitative via intensity (dB) readings on a meter or display panel; and,
- analytical with the use of spectral analysis software to review recorded sound samples.
Preventing the loss of air, nitrogen and other gas leaks is an important service Therma-Sonic Australia provides to plants and other facilities. This service can potentially save your business significantly from energy losses.
Ultrasonic Testing is an important and valuable technique that Therma-Sonic Australia uses to detect and prevent problems. We utilize Ultrasonic Testing on rotating and non-rotating assets such as Hi-speed, low speed motor bearings, Electrical switchboards, electrical switch gear, steam lines, steam traps, vacuum chambers, valves, air lines, gas lines and pressure vessels.
Leak Detection is an important function for detecting and protecting problems in assets. Ultrasonic Testing is a very useful and our primary technique for leak detection. We often couple Ultrasonic Testing with IR (Infrared) Thermography to locate electrical leaks and
Ultrasonic Testing utilizes specialized equipment that uses high frequency sound energy to analyze and make measurements. At Therma-Sonic Australia, we use UE SYSTEMS INC. Ultraprobe 10000 to detect and analyze leaks. The right equipment like this and our experience allow us to help your organization save money from leaking out of your assets.
