Leak listening systemHykron is a simple to use leak listening system with very high acoustic sensitivity. It is ideal for direct leak listening at available water fittings and use as a ground microphone.
OperationLeak noise travels through the water and can be detected by listening at valves, hydrants or any available fitting on the pipe. Hykron detects the leak noise through its high sensitivity sensor for listening via the headphones. Operation can be with extension rod or tripod for ground listening.
Advanced acoustic listening technologyThe Mikron3, a water leakage ground microphone system is the optimum device for water leak detection available in the market. With high sensitivity sensors and wireless sensor communications the device allows users to detect leaks easily and effectively. The Mikron 3 provides high acoustic quality leak noise listening by direct pipe contact or on the ground surface. It features extensive filter selection and a graphic minimum noise level display options. There is a choice of three processors: Mini, Pro and PrimeTouch App.
Dynamic listening controlIf the noise level changes rapidly, for example due to traffic noise, then the sound to the operator headphones is switched off. When the source of louder noise disappears, the Dynamic Listen Control automatically reconnects sound to the headphones. This control both protects the operators hearing and is an automatic ‘press-to-listen’ feature.
Minimum noise level displayLeak noise propagates from the leak to the ground surface where it can be detected using the sensitive ground microphone. For accurate leak pinpointing Mikron displays the minimum noise level. This is the background noise level, including leak noise, but without transient noises, such as traffic.
Frequency displayTo further enable accurate leak pinpointing Mikron3 also displays the frequency content detected as a bar graph. This will increase as the sensor is positioned closer to the leak.
Entry level acoustic water leak pinpointing system for leak pre-location and locationMikron3 Junior is a compact, easy to use, water leak pinpointing system with optimised acoustic sensing technology and excellent sound quality.
Easy operationThe Processor unit displays the minimum noise level which is the background noise level without transient noises such as road traffic. The bar graph display shows the position of maximum leak noise. Adjustable filters allow for minimising background noise. The unit may be hand-held or used with a neck strap and is designed for both left and right handed use.
Dynamic listen controlIf the noise level changes rapidly, for example due to traffic noise, then the sound to the headphones is cut. When the loud noise disappears the Dynamic Listen Control automatically reconnects sound to the headphones. This control is a ‘press-to-listen’ feature and also protects the operators hearing.
PrimeTouch Apps provide a single, leak pin-pointing, platform for the operation of both real-time and off-line correlation plus a ground microphone.
- Real-time correlation with radio transmitters – routine operation
- Off-line correlation using noise loggers – deployment over-night for difficult leaks or when pipe access is difficult
- Ground microphone listening – for leak confirmation
- Training app
- Ideal for plastic pipes, large mains and over longer distance
