Gas & Water Leak Detection: Echologics

July 2009 Vol. 64 No. 7

LeakfinderRT is a leak noise correlator for locating leaks in all types of water and other fluids transmission and distribution pipes.

This patented correlator is the first truly personal computer (PC) based system to implement the leak noise correlation technique. It utilizes the PC’s soundcard and other multimedia components to record and playback leak noise.

LeakfinderRT also uses the PC’s CPU to perform the correlation operation and associated signal conditioning. Modern PCs incorporate extremely fast CPUs and high-resolution soundcards and therefore offer several advantages over “usual” hardware implementations of the leak noise correlation technique. LeakfinderRT improves performance on PVC and other plastic pipes due to an enhanced correlation and advanced sensor technology, as well as Echologics’ background in acoustics and vibration engineering. 866.324.6564,
