According to the Compressed Air and Gas Institute (CAGI), the average compressed air system loses 30 percent of its air through leaks but locating those leaks has been a time-consuming and te-dious process. The new Fluke™ ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager enables maintenance teams to quick-ly — and visually — pinpoint the location of compressed air, gas, and vacuum system leaks even during peak production periods. Leaks can be detected in a matter of minutes

With minimal training, technicians can identify compressed air leaks considerably faster than us-ing traditional diagnostic methods. Now checking for air leaks can be performed during the typical maintenance routine.

An array of microphones combined with the new SoundSight™ technology, the handheld Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager filters out background noise so maintenance teams can accu-rately locate leaks in compressed air systems, even in the noisiest environments.

The seven-inch LCD touchscreen overlays a SoundMap™ on a visual image for quick leak lo-cation identification. The straightforward, intuitive interface allows technicians to isolate the sound frequency of the leak to filter out loud background noise. In a matter of hours, the team can in-spect the entire plant – during peak operations. Images can be saved and exported for reporting purposes.
