  • Ultrasonic Products for Ultrasonic Sounds

    Gas leaks can be noisy, worse than that they can be damaging. These hazards are presented not only to equipment but to human health and environmental health as well. That is precisely why it is so important to monitor them closely and take quick action the moment one takes place. For large gas leaks, a popular option is to employ ultrasonic leak detectors. With noisy leaks, these products are able to convert the leak sound, which is typically of a high frequency, to a lower frequency. At this point the...

  • Chatting With Dolphins

    Over spring break, I was lucky enough to sail will dolphins. We were out on a small catamaran and a group of the mammals swam along the side for a couple minutes, two dove right under our boat. It was amazing to see these creatures so close in the wild. The one thing I was bummed about is I couldn't hear them communicate; this could be because they are able to communicate with ultrasound. Ultrasound is sound levels above what can be heard by humans. Dolphins, dogs and other animals...

  • Baby Heartbeats, Dog Whistles and Leaky Pipes; Ultrasonic Leak Detectors

    Ultrasound is a sound that is greater than the upper limit frequency that humans are able to hear. The normal sound level limit for humans is 20,000 Hz, this applying to the average healthy, young adult. Ultrasound is used to detect a baby's heartbeat inside its mother, helps animals hunt and can be used in chemistry experiments. A variety of animals are able to make use of this process including bats, dolphins, and whales. Cats, dogs and mice are able to hear and react to higher frequency sounds. There are...

Industry Information

Ultrasonic Leak Detectors

Ultrasonic leak detectors are used for large gas leaks. Because gas leaks are often noisy, the ultrasonic technology converts the high frequency leak sound to a lower range where the hissing of the leak can be heard through a set of headphones and traced to the source. Ultrasonic leak detectors are somewhat new to the industry.

Ultrasonic leak detectors can be used to detect any type of gas, including CFC, HFC, nitrogen, CO2, steam, and others. The volume of the leak's sound is dependent on the amount of pressure in the system. The higher the pressure, the easier it will be to hear the leak. In order to be successful, this method of leak detection must be performed in an area that is completely quiet. This factor greatly reduces the commonality of ultrasonic leak detectors. These particular detectors are always light weight and portable, so much so that they can be carried around by plumbers, who might use them in domestic plumbing situations where a natural gas leak or refrigerant leak is possible. Of course, because of the necessary silence involved, other methods, such as electronic detectors or gas detectors are most likely attempted first. Being hand held is another characteristic that makes it easier when ultrasonic detectors are employed seeking large gas leaks in industrial environments. In those situations it may be that the piping suspected of leaking is underground or in the walls, and having easily maneuverable equipment speeds up the process considerably.


The specific process ultrasonic detectors use to locate gas leaks is called heterodyning. It is incredibly close to the technology utilized by radio transmissions and the ultrasound sonograms parents view their unborn children through. The sound wave that is unheard by the human ear is located by the detector and translated into an electronic impulse that tells the tester where to go. It is a much safer option then some detector processes that involve open flames and the potential for fire or explosions. This technological advance in leak detection is important because it has reduced the hazardous exposure to chemicals, which occurs with more involved detection processes. Also, with the help of the portable ultrasonic leak detectors, technicians with little to no experience are able to use this product and successfully detect and mark a pipe or vessel that is leaking.
