Ultrasound leak detection covers a wide range of leaks: pressure or vacuum and any gas.  Sound dependent, ultrasound instruments detect the turbulent flow produced as the fluid (liquid or gas) moves from the high-pressure side to the low-pressure side of a leak. Ultrasound leak inspection is especially beneficial in areas where there is a saturation of gases or where a wide variety of gases, pressurized vessels and vacuum processes exist. For this reason, ultrasound leak detection is used in many facilities for safety, environmental, energy or quality assurance programs.


We provide Ultrasound Leak Detection surveys to identify the compressed air or gas leaks at your facility. The survey includes detailed reporting to help you repair each leak, which will save thousands of dollars each year in energy consumption

Energy conservation and cost savings Ultrasound surveys identify compressed air leaks, failed or failing steam traps and process gas leaks with precise location and quantifiable numbers.  Identifying these leaks or failed steam traps will allow for the creation of detailed reports that show cost avoidance.  Just one quick coupler leak at 100psi, assuming a cost factor of $0.36 per 1000 cubic feet, can cost as much as $750.00 a year.  The energy conservation and cost savings potential make this a very attractive service.

A trained ultrasound technician from Peterson Predictive Maintenance will scan areas where compressed air or process gas is present with a device that is sensitive only to a high frequency range.  This allows for ambient noise to be filtered out so the primary focus is on the sound created by compressed gas or air leaks.  Once a leak has been identified, the amplitude of the leak is recorded by the device and is combined with the system pressure, the cost of energy and the type of gas being surveyed.  These are detailed in the report with a cumulative total of the amount of dollars lost annually as a result of those leaks.

Please give us a call at Peterson Predictive Maintenance to schedule your leak survey
