For industrial plants and facilities, compressed air, gas and vacuum systems are a vital source of converted energy. Easier than other resources such as electricity, compressors are everywhere in today’s factories. They run machines, tools, robotics, lasers, product handling systems, and much more. Yet many compressed air, gas and vacuum systems are compromised by wear and poor maintenance practices, which contribute to the greatest waste of all—the ever-present leaks.
These leaks can be hidden behind machines, at connection points, overhead in fixed pipes, or in cracked pipes or worn hoses. The waste adds up quickly and can even lead to downtime acoustic imaging is a popular technique for detecting leaks in pipes, tanks, and other industrial equipment. Edge Engineering used latest Ultrasound technology to create a visual image of the area being inspected, allowing any leaks or other anomalies to be easily identified.
