Ultrasound Valve & Steam Solutions

As fluid passes or flows around an obstruction, downstream turbulence is generated, resulting in an auditory signature. The differential changes in the signature (i.e. amplitude) is considered leak-by. Effective use of the UL101 Troubleshooter for ultrasound reliability on valves can reduce and even eliminate unnecessary overhaul costs, resources, and time. For more information on UL101 ultrasound listening devices that can help with valve and steam leaks, see the related products below.
