Industrial imaging: acoustic cameras and high definition borescopes

Acoustic cameras, including Fluke's high-quality range, grant you the ability to visualize sound, transforming the way industrial inspections are carried out. From pinpointing leaks to identifying partial discharge (PD) and spotting mechanical deterioration, acoustic cameras are revolutionizing predictive maintenance decision-making processes. Utilizing ultrasonic leak detection, our acoustic cameras expedite inspections, allowing you to swiftly detect issues in compressed air, gas, and vacuum systems. They are also adept at identifying electrical partial discharge (PD) and mechanical deterioration in conveyor systems. In addition to acoustic cameras, Fluke provides industrial borescopes for high-resolution inspections in tight spaces and complex machinery. Harness the power of our acoustic cameras to elevate the efficiency and effectiveness of your industrial inspections.

Frequently asked questions for acoustic imaging cameras and leak detection

What is an Acoustic Camera?

An acoustic camera is an ultrasonic imaging device for locating and characterizing sound sources, producing a thermographic-style display of sound. Acoustic imaging cameras are ideal for industrial inspections, especially applications like leak detection and partial discharge testing in which personnel need to survey crowded industrial facilities. An acoustic camera can discover sound sources that are difficult to identify, capture images with sound measurements, and even allow you to adjust frequency levels on your display.

How Does an Acoustic Camera Work?

Acoustic imaging cameras work by utilizing an array of tiny, super-sensitive microphones that generate a spectrum of decibel levels per frequency. An algorithm then calculates a sound image that is superimposed over a visual image. The sound image adapts to the frequency level selected – allowing you to hone in subtle sounds in busy environments, like a gas leak on a plant floor.

What is Ultrasonic Leak Detection? Acoustic Imaging vs. Ultrasonic Detection

Ultrasonic leak detection is the process of discovering leaks through either a handheld device that helps to determine leak location or a stationary detector. Acoustic imaging simplifies the process, allowing users to quickly find and measure leaks in noisy environments. An acoustic imaging camera like the Fluke ii910 will also simplify visualization, high-precision measurement, and analysis of leaks.
