Measuring devices for leak detection an calculation

Leakages are the reason for the biggest waste of energy in compressed air systems. Several studies show that 30% of the cost of compressed air can be saved by eliminating leakages. Therefore, it is a must to detect and eliminate leakages frequently. Our LD-Series will give you all the function needed to detect leakages and measure the consequences in terms of energy consumption and wasted money.

Typical applications of our measuring instruments in this section are leakage detection in compressed air systems and leak testing of unpressurized systems.

Leak detector LD 400

is the advancement of the proven LD 300 and even the smallest leakages can be detected even from distances of several meters.

Leak detector LD 400-set in a case

The set includes a robust impact-proof transportation case which contains all necessary components and accessories.

Leak tester LD 500 to detect and calculate leakages.

With the integrated camera it is possible to take photos of the leakage areas. A software allows simple report generation on your computer. Available end of 2017.

Which leak detector to choose?

While LD 400 detects the leakage the LD500 is also able to calculate the leakage cost. The user gets a review about the actual state of the tested system and about the potential cost savings. If you are not sure which instrument is for you please contact our experts. We help you to find the right leak detector that fits your application needs.

The following table gives you an idea of how much the actual potential savings are caused by leakages in compressed air systems.
