Inficon Whisper Ultrasonic Leak Detector with Headphone & Case.
Do you have a non-traditional leak detection
application that a gas detector, soap bubbles or dye injection system can’t
address? Whisper is ideal for detecting and locating ultrasonic frequencies
generated when the following common situations occur:
- leaks of any gas under pressure or vacuum.
- electrical arcing.
- worn bearings and machinery.
- malfunctions in steam traps.
- leaking seals.
The leak detector includes a specialized built-in
receiver that detects frequencies in the 40.5 kHz range. Through
sophisticated circuitry, Whisper locates the ultrasound’s source, while an
internal noise control ensures the instrument is unaffected by audible
noise. This makes Whisper a versatile tool which can even be used in noisy
environments, such as mechanical rooms.
heterodyne capability, which reduces the ultrasonic frequencies detected to
a range that can be heard by the human ear. Variations can therefore be
identified to easily pinpoint the ultrasonic source. Heterodyne output is
enabled when headphones (included) are plugged in to the detector.
Sensitivity is adjusted through an innovative touch pad. Multiple LEDs and
an audible alarm register the leak when heterodyne mode is not enabled.
Versatility and flexibility for a variety of
For the ultimate in performance and versatility, consider the Whisper
with accessory kit. Along with the leak detector, this kit gives you more
accessories for more productivity. Use the contact probe to check
machinery’s function. Simply twist the metal probe onto the instrument and
touch it to bearing housings, solenoids, pistons and other mechanical
equipment to allow frequencies to travel into Whisper’s ultrasonic
transducer. Properly functioning machinery sounds smooth and clear, a sharp
contrast to malfunctioning machinery.
Use Whisper Transmitter to test
seals around any enclosed space, including doors, windows, ducts and
refrigerator cases. Simply turn Whisper Transmitter on to generate its
ultrasonic tone and place it in the area you wish to leak test. Trace around
potential problem areas with Whisper to alert you to the transmitter’s
ultrasonic frequencies “leaking” through poorly-sealed areas.
Transmitter, contact probe, and premium headphones are included in the
accessory kit, or can be purchased separately for use with the standard
package.Ideal for detecting and locating sources of ultrasonic sound through the use of sophisticated electronic circuitry
