Long Range Module
"WORKS LIKE AN
TECHNOLOGY FROM UE SYSTEMS
AND NASA BRINGS DISTANT LEAKS CLOSE UP
No need to use a fork lift or elevated
platform to locate those hard to reach leaks! It is now
possible to locate leaks in ceilings, overhead lines, check high voltage equipment at a
safe distance and even scan hazardous gas lines safely.
UE Systems, Inc. the world leader in
ultrasonic leak detection has teamed up with one of its' customers, National Aeronautics
and Space Administration, long recognized as the world leader in space
produce the UE-LRM-2 Long Range Leak Detection Module. NASA engineers looked
for a way to detect leaks in fluid systems of critical out-of-reach launch and ground
support equipment. They developed the LRM-2 and licensed it to be made commercially
available around the world.
How the UE-LRM-2 works:
The unique collecting horn delivers a
high degree of reliability, sensitivity and versatility while providing for discrimination
against background noises. The parabolic design of the amplifying chamber is designed to
reflect all ultrasonic signals directly to the apex of the transducer with minimal
acoustic energy loss. The signal is then pre-amplified and transferred to the Ultraprobe
housing where it is amplified again. This "double amplification" effect works
acoustically just like a telescope bringing the leak close up.
