Compressed Air Loss Guesstimator for Digital Ultraprobes

Procedure for using the UE SYSTEMS INC. ULTRAPROBE Models 3000/9000/10,000/15,000 to locate and roughly measure air leakage in compressed air systems.

Use the scanning module to conduct the broad scanning to pinpoint the air leaks. The scanning module with rubber focusing probe is used to determine the air losses. The tip of the rubber focusing probe should be fifteen inches away from the leak location for determination of the leak rate.

Notice: The values presented in this table are not stated as factual CFM measurement. This table is provided solely for convenience and should only be used as a general guideline.
Factors such as turbulence, leak orifice configuration, pressure, moisture and instrument sensitivity can significantly affect your results.

For information on measurement of total compressed air system loss contact your local compressed air vendor or contact UE Service Partners to have a compressed air specialist provide this service for you.
