This game changer will stop you wasting compressed air and money

The Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager quickly locates air and vacuum leaks to help companies maintain their compressed air systems, maximising productivity and reducing utility bills

Leaks in compressed air, gas and vacuum systems silently cost companies a substantial amount of money each month. It’s no wonder that utilities, industry, and government all target compressed air systems as a potential source of cost savings.

The Fluke™ ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager enables maintenance teams to quickly – and visually – pinpoint the location of compressed air, gas, and vacuum system leaks even during peak production periods. Leaks can be detected in a matter of minutes.

With minimal training, technicians can identify compressed air leaks considerably faster than using traditional diagnostic methods. Checking for air leaks can be performed during the typical maintenance routine.

An array of microphones combined with the new SoundSight technology, the handheld Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager filters out background noise so maintenance teams can accurately locate leaks in compressed air systems, even in the noisiest environments.

“We rely heavily on air – it’s one of the most important utilities we have coming into the building,” says Josh Stockert, Maintenance Technician III at Genie (A Terex Brand). “With the Fluke ii900 Industrial Imager, we can stand on the sideline and inspect the air line that goes across while carts and people are moving underneath. We’re not affecting them, but we can tag it then fix it at lunch instead of waiting for a premium weekend shift to fix it.

“Now we don’t have to look at adding new, bigger compressors or receiver chains, so not only is it capacity and energy savings, but now we’re talking about a capital saving.”  

Inspect an entire plant in hours

The seven-inch LCD touchscreen overlays a SoundMap on a visual image for quick leak location identification. The straightforward, intuitive interface allows technicians to isolate the sound frequency of the leak to filter out loud background noise. In a matter of hours, the team can inspect the entire plant – during peak operations. Images can be saved and exported for reporting purposes.

Acoustic imaging combined with industrial diagnostics

The Fluke ii900 was designed in partnership with Sorama, an Eindhoven-based company specialising in noise control and sound analysis solutions. The combination of Sorama’s long history and expertise in acoustic imaging and Fluke’s leadership in diagnostic industrial test and measurement equipment led to the creation of a tool that has the durability and usability required for industrial maintenance applications.
