Vivax-Metrotech

The hydrophone PAM HYDRO-2 is designed to listen for leaks through the water column of a pipe section. New sensor technology enables the operator to cover greater distances and diameters on HDPE, PVC, AC and metal pipes. Offered as a pair, this set of hydrophones can only be used with Vivax-Metrotech’s correlators HL6000X-1; HL6000X-2; HL6000X-3 and HL6000X-PC. This PAM Hydro-2 is highly sensitive - especially in the lower frequency band (<300Hz). This is most important while listening through water and for longer distances to cover. The handling is simple and allows a quick set up. A ball valve at the end of the air release hose makes an air free operation safe and comfortable. The bayonet quick connector can also be used to attach a pressure gauge. 800.446.3392, vxmt.com

SENSIT Technologies

SENSITGOLD G2 is the most versatile and user-friendly gas detection instrument available. SENSIT GOLD G2 allows the user to perform fast and accurate gas leak surveys and investigations. An audible tick helps find gas leaks fast. The instrument can be configured with a variety of sensors for purging and confined space applications. 888.473.6748, gasleaksensors.com

Heath Consultants
The Heath AQUA-SCOPE water leak detector is an instrument which amplifies the frequencies (sound waves) generated by a water leak. Operators find that the AQUA-SCOPE allows maximum freedom of movement and superior sensitivity of the audio and visual signals, thereby improving on the detection and pinpointing of leaks from the surface. The AQUA-SCOPE allows an operator to choose between the ground and direct contact microphones to detect sonic frequencies. Electronic circuitry within the water detector amplifies the sound of the water leak and the operator interprets the differences in signal strength to localize the leak for fast pinpointing. 800-HEATH-US, heathus.com
