FLUKE launches the NEW ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager. What could you repair if you could easily pinpoint a leak, even from a distance and save money! Using patented SoundSight technology and enhanced scans clearly see leaks you can't even hear! It works in noisy places without having to shut down the line. Scan large areas quickly so you can find leaks much faster and improve your bottom line.
Locating leaks in compressed air, gas and vacuum systems can be time-consuming and tedious. With the FLUKE ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager your maintenance team can quickly pinpoint the location of compressed air, gas and vacuum leaks in a matter of minutes. With SoundSight technology you can see the sound a leak produces, even from a distance, even in noisy industrial environments.
Equipped with an array of microphones for an expanded field-of-view, the handheld FLUKE ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager enables maintenance teams to quickly and accurately locate air, gas and vacuum leaks in compressed air systems (watch the video to see the FLUKE ii900 in action, within a noisy environment)
The 7” LCD touchscreen overlays a SoundMap on a visual image for quick leak location identification. The straightforward, intuitive interface allows technicians to isolate the sound frequency of the leak to filter out loud background noise. In a matter of hours, the team can inspect the entire plant – during peak operations. Even from a distance you can quickly and easily identify the air leak repairs needed to ensure efficient operations and reduce utility bills.

Never leave air leaks unattended again!
Testing during production without disrupting operations with the FLUKE ii900
The ability to scan for leaks without affecting production is a huge advantage. “Before, we never thought of testing for air leaks during production because we couldn’t shut down the aisles and move people out of an area to go up and look at a potential leak. Now, we can stand on the sideline and scan the air line overhead, while carts and people are moving underneath. We’re not affecting their work, but we can tag the leak and then move a lift to that spot during lunch and fix it rather than having to wait for a weekend PM shift." Initially, the primary objective for Genie when testing the FLUKE ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager was to save energy.
After the initial air leak inspections and corrections, Genie Industries saw a 25.7% recovery in their compressed air capacity. “We were near the top end of what our compressor system can put out.... By correcting the leaks found using the FLUKE ii900, one of our four compressors is nearly idle much of the time.” The reduction in compressor usage translates to an estimated $48,754 in annual electrical energy savings. However they believe there is an additional benefit derived from not having to add more compressor capacity.
