Xmic detects and amplifies the noise created by leaks in pressurised pipes, the leak position can be verified by surface sounding for ground surveying or prior to any excavation and repair being carried out. This speeds up repair of the leak, reduces repair costs and ensures that disruption to the water supply is minimized.
Xmic user friendly filter settings automatically sets filters for the pipe material. To further suppress background noise and find difficult leaks, experienced operators can choose to use manual filtering allowing them to filter band width to be positioned anywhere within the filter range. (The selected band width is displayed graphically)
MLP checks the readings over the previous 3 seconds and memorizes the lowest noise level, the constant background (leak) noise. As the sensor is moved, a series of readings are taken the last ten readings are memorized and displayed digitally and graphically to clearly show the leak position.
Xmic features a ‘cut –off’ at high noise levels to ensure operator comfort and safety
