Ultrasonic Leak Detection & Mechanical Inspection so sensitive it can hear the human eye blink.

Designed for ease of use, it often takes no more than 15 minutes to become competent in testing with the ULTRAPROBE 550.

Fast accurate diagnosis through the ULTRAPROBE 550 system will dramatically reduce unplanned downtime and shorten planned outage time.

The ULTRAPROBE 550 heterodynes ultrasound to the audible range providing accurate sound reproduction.

Ultraprobe's versatility makes it ideally suited to work with any plant program:

  • Predictive maintenance (PDM)

  • Energy Conservation

  • Safety

  • Quality Assurance (QA/QC)

  • Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)

  • Process Safety Management (PSM)

Ultraprobe provides data acquisition through three modes:

  1. Auditory Channels (via an acoustically isolating headset)

  2. Analog Meter

  3. Demodulated Signal for vibration data collectors and FFT's
