Gas Leak Detectors
A water or gas pipe may develop leaks after a certain period of time. You can use the leak detector here as a reliable manifold when you are carrying out the leakage tests stipulated by law, thus improving safety in the building.
The measuring instrument is an essential tool in many areas and is very simple to operate. The process involves setting the sensitivity via a rotary knob, so that users immediately recognize when they are approaching the leak. The flexible measuring probe even enables you to check areas that are difficult to access. There are usually two levels available in terms of an alarm signal:
- from 200 ppm CH4, there is an acoustic alarm and a yellow visual signal,
- from 10,000 ppm CH4, the visual signal turns red.
Testo's innovative leak detector has the seal of the mandatory DVGW test. You also get the necessary accessories for the pressure and leakage meter: system case, feed module, connector block, hose, test pump, adapter and other items. These enable you to carry out leakage measurements directly on the gas boiler. Typical applications for this kind of leak detector for gas pipe tests include:
- tightness and load test (according to TRGI 2008),
- serviceability test of the gas pipes,
- automatic determination of the pipe volume,
- LPG and waste water pipe test.
The beneficial features of Testo's leak detectors can be seen in their compliance with the specified directives and clear menu guidance. This makes it easy to carry out the required tests on the gas pipes and at other locations. The pressure and leakage meter carries out an automatic tightness test and thus saves you a great deal of effort.
The vacuum gauge also scores high marks with its great precision. The testo 552 digital vacuum gauge, which operates via Bluetooth, can for instance be used when a refrigeration system or a heat pump needs to be tested. This measures the pressure and automatically calculates the evaporation temperature. Its simple operation is supported by the practical single-hose connection and by the high-resolution, easy-to-read colour display. Furthermore, you can store the measurement data in a customer folder which has been previously set up and thus ensure clear organization of the documentation.
The high precision of the classic leak detector helps you with leak detection and with testing how serious the leak is. It is equipped with the following sensors for this:
- a flow rate sensor,
- an absolute pressure sensor,
- two differential pressure sensors.
