VPE Ultrasonic Leak Detector - Basic Kit
The Patented Superior AccuTrak® VPE is a state-of-the-art non-invasive leak detector that can detect both pressure and vacuum leaks of ANY GAS.
The AccuTrak® VPE is ideal for pinpointing leaks in air conditioning, refrigeration, automotive and other systems.
AccuTrak® is extremely sensitive to the ultrasonic sound of a turbulent gas leak. Using a technology called "heterodyning" it translates the sound to a lower frequency which your ear can interpret.
AccuTrak maintains the original sound characteristics making it possible to distinguish leaks from other competing background sounds. AccuTrak is so sensitive you can actually hear the blink of an eye, yet most background noise will not interfere with detection accuracy.
Superior AccuTrak® advanced patented technology has never been so affordable! The AccuTrak® VPE Basic Kit is for technicians who require only the essentials to detect leaks using airborne ultrasound.
As with all AccuTrak® instruments, the VPE finds leaks for any kind of gas or refrigerant without changing tips or components. Works equally well to find compressed air leaks, nitrogen leaks – even vacuum leaks! AccuTrak® can find leaks as small as the equivalent of 1.5 oz per year of refrigerant, or can hear a 5 psi leak up to 30 feet away.
Detect/hear internal leakage in check, ball, needle, gate or any type of valve! Diagnose thermal expansion valves in just five minutes!
Hear wear and lubrication problems before damage is done!
Audio Output: 0 Hz to 4 kHz Natural Sound conversion allows you to Hear the Leak, and distinguish leaks from mechanical or other background ultrasound.
Visual Output: 10 element bar graph provides quick and intuitive visual indication to presence of and relative strength of ultrasound.
Adjustable Sensitivity: allows operator to quickly identify leaks from a distance, and then zero in on the exact location of the leak.
Capable of detecting a 5 psi leak out of a 0.005" (5/1000 inch) hole, 20 to 30 feet away depending on background noise.
Easily detects any gas that generates ultrasonic sound during flow – including vacuum leaks.
Capable of detecting leaks equivalent to 1.5 oz/year of Refrigerant.
Works equally well for compressed Air or Nitrogen.
Not affected by wind or high concentrations of leaked gas or refrigerant.
