Acoustic Tube Probe LD6000 PTS
For acoustic leak detection directly in the pressurized water line – also on the house connection side
The remediation of damage after pipe bursts requires a definite clarification of the responsible cost centre.
Has the damage occurred on the terrain of the building's proprietor or on the side of the water supply network?
If to this end one would like to carry out an above-ground acoustic leak detection to locate the damage, the pipeline course must be perfectly clear, which is hardly ever the case. And, so far, pinpoint locating directly in the house connection line has not been possible without further ado.
Finally, using the acoustic tube probe LD6000 PTS, pipe bursts can quickly and easily be detected on the side of the house connection, too!
The ingenious combination of compact, bendable pig probe with integrated precision microphone and contactable probe cable enables the acoustic detection of the point of leakage including locating function.
According to regulations, probe and push cable of the LD6000 PTS can be disinfected and directly channelled into the pressurized water line on the house connection side.
Flexible application and combination possibilities
Unaffected by ambient sounds, the precision microphone of the LD6000 PTS captures even extremely silent noises inside the pipe, which are wirelessly conveyed to the supplied headphones via the Bluetooth transmitter.
Experienced measurement engineers can thus unerringly identify the leaking sound and then determine the position of the leak by use of the metre counter.
Should further a combination detector LD6000 be available, frequencies can additionally be visualized and potential points of leakage can be indicated in form of a bar graph. Moreover, the application of an LD6000 enables the data recording of long-term measurements.
Simple pipe and pinpoint location
Furthermore, a frequency generator can be connected to the LD6000 PTS to contact the entire push cable or the probe tip.
Then the course of the pipeline or the point of leakage can be detected using a receiver.
A suitable combination of transmitter and receiver is e.g. pipe detector SR-24 with transmitter ST-510.
Alternatively, other commercially available transmitters and receivers operating in the 33-kHz range can be used.
The LD6000 PTS provides a variety of mounting options of the push cable pressure lock for flexible insertion via:
- Domestic water meter,
- Free-flow valve,
- Dismantled piping,
- Tapping saddle,
The connection of the tube probe with the combination detector LD6000 is no problem and constitutes the perfect visual addition for acoustic leak detection. Furthermore, the LD6000 can be used to record long-term measurements.
