Fluke launches the ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager
A fast, simple way to detect compressed air, steam, gas and vacuum leaks
Leaks in compressed air, gas and vacuum systems hit both production uptime and the operations bottom line.
While this is a known issue, locating air leaks has been time-consuming and tedious – until now. With the Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager your maintenance team can quickly pinpoint the location of compressed air and vacuum leaks. With minimal training, your maintenance technicians can begin checking for air leaks during their typical maintenance routine–even during peak operation hours.
This industrial imager offers a new way to locate issues using sound. It is an intuitive, simple to use tool that can isolate the frequency of leaks or vacuums, even in extremely noisy production environments.
Inspect an entire plant in hours
The handheld Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager enables maintenance teams to quickly and accurately locate air, steam, gas and vacuum leaks in compressed air systems. The straightforward, intuitive interface allows technicians to isolate the sound frequency of the leak to filter out background noise. In a matter of hours, the team can inspect the entire plant – during peak operations.
How does the Fluke ii900 work?
The handheld Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Manager is a sound camera, which means it actually creates images of the sounds it detects.
It works similar to any other camera but has an array of microphones, which capture sound. As you have multiple detectors, you can apply postprocessing and find correlation between the signal from each individual microphone, creating an image, which will pinpoint sources of different sounds with high sensitivity and high accuracy. The image created by sounds will be overlaid on a visual image, so you can identify the source of sound and its intensity just on visual image, using one of the main human senses – your sight.
Acoustic imaging combined with industrial diagnostics
Using SoundSight™ technology, this industrial imager offers a new way to locate issues using sound. A leak location is determined by discerning the direction from which a sound originates by the time delays that occur as the sound passes over an array of microphones. A SoundMap™ is displayed in colour over a visual image of the equipment allowing for fast visual location. The visual image makes it easy to scan a large area quickly and even capture leaks from a distance.
