Ultrasound

Ultrasound is high frequency sound waves above 20 kilohertz (kHz) and up to 300 kHz. Commonly used for leak detection and mechanical and electrical inspections, Ultrasound is one of the more flexible condition monitoring technologies on the market. Although Ultrasound testing provides many benefits, there are two primary areas that generate the greatest value to a plant: air leak detection and electrical applications. For electrical applications, safety is always a concern. Ultrasound can be used as a safety precaution for identifying failure modes such as Arcing, Tracking and Corona.
