Pinpoint Compressed Air Leaks And Reduce Utility Bills
The New Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager Pinpoints Compressed Air Leaks in Minutes to Reduce Utility Bills and Maximise Productivity.

Now that budgets and staff are smaller, it's not uncommon to ask for justification before authorising test tool purchases. The key phrase here is return on investment (ROI), or how long will it take to save enough money, using the tool, to cover the cost of purchasing it.

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.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a single 1/8” (3mm) leak in a compressed air line can cost upwards of $2,500 a year. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates an average U.S. plant that has not been well maintained, can waste 20% of its total compressed air production capacity through leaks. The New Zealand government, as part of its Target Sustainability project, estimates that system leaks can account for 30 to 50% of a compressed air system’s capacity.

What if there were a leak detection technology that could pinpoint the precise location of a leak from up to 50 meters away? The Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager, a “gamechanger” in the pursuit of finding compressed air leaks.

Where to find leaks:

Threaded pipe joints.
Quick disconnects.
FRLs (filter, regulator, lubricator combinations).
Condensate traps.
Pneumatic holding tanks.

WHAT IS THE ii900?

The Fluke ii900 is a Sonic Industrial Imager primarily used to detect and locate leaks in compressed air, compressed gas, and vacuum systems. The Imager has a visible light camera that captures a live-view image of the inspection area. An acoustic sensor-array aligns a sound-source heatmap with the image. Capture and save still image files and video files from the inspection for documentation and reports.

The seven-inch LCD touchscreen overlays a SoundMap™ on a visual image for quick leak location 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 inspect the entire plant – during peak operations. Images can be saved and exported for reporting purposes.
