Acoustic Gas Leak Detection System
When a pressurized gas leak occurs, the frequency content of the sound being generated extends beyond the audible portion of the spectrum into the ultrasonic region (above 20 kHz). The intensity of the sound generated by a leak is determined by several factors including pressure, leak rate, gas viscosity, and distance from the leak source. It functions with all gas types .
It is the first non-contact gas leak detector of its kind that recognizes unique sound “fingerprints,” analyzing 24 discrete ultrasonic bands, while ignoring nuisance ultrasonic sources.
The FlexSonic® Acoustic Detector is comprised of two main components: the AC100 Acoustic Sensor and the ATX10 AcousticTransmitter.
The AC100 Acoustic Sensor employs a high performance microphone and digital signal processing (DSP) technology to continuously monitor the acoustic signal. The wide dynamic range and spectral resolution enable the sensor to provide both superior sensitivity and false alarm discrimination.
The ATX10 Transmitter evaluates the incoming acoustic power spectrum data from the AC100 Acoustic Sensor and makes a determination of alarm condition.
Extensive data logging with removable storage. Fail-safe operation.
