SF6 Leakmate

Low cost SF6 leak detector

The SF6 LEAKMATE leak detector is a great device for mobile SF6 leak detection. In practical use, it has a detection threshold of 1 x 10E-6 mbar l/s, which makes it perfectly suitable for simple leak detection applications on SF6 switchgear. The easy to use, processor controlled instrument features both an audible alarm and an LED bar graph display, allowing estimation if a small, medium or big leak is being detected.

The leak detector automatically compensates all ambient influences like temperature changes or movement of air in the room. Intelligent control sets up the instrument appropriately for the ambient situation.

It then uses the present gas concentration as its zero line and begins to look for even higher gas concentrations, which by all means occur when a leak is approached. This will again be indicated audibly and visually. It is thus possible to determine leaks even in an already seriously contaminated area.
