I’ve been meaning to write you folks for some time now to compliment your team on the development of such a wonderful, useful and accurate product, the UL101 Ultrasound Detector and the PowerBeam 300.Within 60 minutes I had walked the entire upper structure of the Air Cooled Condensers and had personally located 23 pinhole sized leaks located at the field weld points.Since that time I have had an opportunity to utilize other manufacturers ultra-sonic detectors but I have not come across one as simple and as accurate to use as yours.
CTRL’s ultrasound technologies tie in with our mission for measurable and ‘best in class’ solutions. Our manufacturing clients can now experience energy savings unachievable with other tools currently in the market.Along with energy savings, the opportunity to utilize these tools for predictive maintenance will allow our clients to experience a higher level of equipment performance not available until now.
Sensor Synergy’s power and air pressure monitor combined with the CTRL UL101 leak detector has been very useful in finding ways to significantly reduce spending on electricity for our compressed air system. Our latest measurements have shown that we have already realized over 35% savings in electricity for only a small investment in measuring gear, leak repairs, and operational changes.
I just wanted to let you know that the ULI0l Ultrasound Detector worked great at our school. We nearly gave up trying to find air leaks in our Dry Sprinkler System, with air pressure in the system of 45 psig.The sprinkler company charged approx. $1,000 to $3,000 every year just to find the leaks but they only found very few or none at all. This has been like this for at least 8 years; we lost 2 complete compressor systems about $2,000 to $3,000 each time and one additional electric motor of same costs.Using the UL101, I found the major leak in less than an hour. I also checked dry sprinkler heads and found 2 more leaks. I was able to check more than 60 or 70 sprinkler heads in one hour.Now I’m a hero, saving the school money and aggravation, due to the high cost and maintenance of our dry sprinkler system.I checked and our compressor cycles are now 1 Hour 46 minutes compared to 5 minutes before finding the leaks with the ULlOl and verifying repairs.
The UL101 is used heavily by our maintenance staff at this power generation facility. We are able to locate 60 psi hydrogen leaks on the generator, boiler leaks, and leaks in duct work.We are also able to verify repairs in manifolds on the generator, ensuring that no water and hydrogen leaks were created during repairs. This saves outage time.
Thanks for all the help and support getting set up with the UL101. We started using it without formal training. We created an extremely small, no-audible leak from a servicing O2 bottle and was able to pick up the leak in a relatively noisy environment from across the hangar bay...160 feet away!
