The UE Systems Ultraprobe 100 Ultrasonic Inspection System is an analog tool that senses high frequency sounds produced by operating equipment, leaks and electrical discharges. The signals are electronically translated by heterodyning, which converts the high frequency sounds into the audible range so they are easily recognized and understood. The user can both hear the sounds through a headset and view them as intensity increments on the Ultraprobe gun's LED meter.
The Ultraprobe 100 features an 8-position sensitivity dial with decibel indications, and an LED bar graph display in which each LED equals approximately 3dB for calculating decibel levels.
Ultrasound technology is advantageous for inspection because it produces a high-frequency, short-wave signal. Since it is directional and localized, it is ideal for point-and-shoot troubleshooting. It can also be easily blocked or shielded and used in noisy environments. Changes in ultrasound provide early warning of potential problems.

Here's how some of our customers used this product.
Testing for Pipeline Leaks
The Background: Our customer is an energy company that builds and maintains buried pipelines to transport natural gas to their customers. They seek a reliable means of testing the lines to ensure they are not leaking.
The Problem: Underground gas leaks can have very serious financial, safety, and environmental implications. Complex pipelines contain may fittings and valves which are potential areas for leaks. Once pipelines are buried, it is extremely costly to find and fix leaks.
The Solution: We recommended the UE Systems Ultraprobe 100 ultrasonic inspection system which senses high frequency sounds produced by pressure and vacuum leaks. Since it uses sound, detection is directional and localized making it easy to pinpoint the leaks. The customer will use the Ultraprobe 100 to test pipelines before they are buried and pressurized which will save the company a lot of time and money.
