DescriptionUltrasonic sound (20 to 100 kHz) is generated by turbulence created by air or a gas forced through a small orifice. Ultrasonic sound is very directional in nature and can be used to pinpoint the exact location of the leak point. Leaking air or gas is generally considered to be viscous flow and as the flow velocity increases, the frequency of the ultrasonic sound emitted will become higher. The HHLT-1R amplifies and converts these sounds to frequencies and levels that the human ear can hear. The HHLT-1T transmitter can supply ultrasonic signals for locations where the gas/air leak does not have sufficient pressure to create an ultrasonic sound. This transmitter will allow the ultrasonic detection of cracks and openings.
