LeakShooter LKS1000 Ultrasonic Leak Camera Detector

The LKS1000 ultrasonic leak Camera detector equipment is used for many general applications within industrial plants.

Logis-Tech have just launched the leakshooter to the UK.  The Leakshooter LKS 1000 is the first camera to detect, measure and photograph air and vacuum leaks.  It provides the dual possibility of ultrasonic leak detection with a visible image.  This enables users, for the first time, to see on a large LCD color screen the precise location of air and vacuum leaks.  Near a leak, a dynamic target will appear, and change in size and color from yellow to red depending on the severity of the problem. At the bottom of the screen, the continuous measurement of dB RMS and MAX is displayed on a colour bar graph.

Once facing a leak it is then possible to take a picture of the precise leak location.  The Leakshooter LKS 1000 can store up to 1000 pictures in JPEG format.  All pictures show date, time, dB level and can be numbered manually. The pictures can be transferred to a PC with the LEAKVIEWER software.

While operating the camera, the possibility to listen to the leak noise with the headphones is still possible.  The operator is then for the first time able to see what he’s listening to.  The Leakshooter LKS 1000 detects a leak of 0.1 mm with 3 bars pressure at 20 meters.  Adjustable gain from 50 db to 110 db for use in any kind of surroundings.

Top reasons why the LEAKSHOOTER / LKS 1000

Is the ideal compressed air leaks detector

        • Very sensitive ultrasonic detector. Detects a leak of 0,1mm under 3 bars at 20 meters
        • High resolution 340*680 pixel colour camera
        • Large 3,5″ LCD colour display
        • Precise leak detection and location by mean of a dynamic target changing in size and colour from yellow to red according to leak severity
        • Possibility to take a picture of the leak location, JPEG format, and transfert ir to PC into the LEAKVIEWER report software. Each scene picture with date, time and number, dB RMS and Max values are continuously measured and displayed on a color and digital bargraph.
        • Possibility to listen simultaneously to the leak noise with high quality headphones
        • Possibility to locate leaks even without headphones
        • Adjustable gain from 50dB to 110 dB
        • Adjustable frequency with electronic mixer from 34kHz to 46 KHz
        • Lithium-ion rechargeable battery
        • Six hours autonomy with full charge


Compressed air is an expensive energy. 20% to 40% is lost in leaks. Deciding to arrest leaks in the compressed air system to minimize electrical energy loss is a wise decision. Repairing leaks are often low cost options, such as tightening of joints to close gaps, replacement of pipelines, and replacing connection valves and rubber seats.

The LEAKSHOOTER LKS 1000 revolutionizes the compressed air and vacuum leak detection. No need anymore To spend hours wearing your headset listening to noisy leaks. With the LEAKSHOOTER LKS 1000 you’ll work Like in infrared thermography, just scanning your compressed air system.  Near a leak a dynamic target will automaticaly appear on the display.  The dynamic target will change in size and colour from yellow to red the closer you come to the leak.

Once on the leak spot an X will appear in the red square target.  You can then take a picture of the leak location, in JPEG format, and save it. Each picture is numbered and indicates the date, time and precise dB RMS and MAX.  Picture scan be transfered on a PC into the LEAKVIEWER picture report, a software supplied for free with each LEAKSHOOTER LKS 1000.  At the screen bottom the continuous measurment of the dB RMS and MAX is displayed on a colour bargraph.

EP512 Ultrasonic Transmitter (Generator)

April 29, 2011   Ultrasonic Detectors

EP512The EP512 is a ultrasonic transmitter, sometimes referred to as a ultrasonic generator that transmits pulsating ultrasonics. It can be used with any of the ultrasonic detector sets. The EP512 ultrasonic transmitter can be placed inside an enclosure, e.g. a steel tank, which is then closed. The user can then examine the tank from the outside perimeter and can easily detect any leaks in the tank, if any, which sounds like “PIPS” in the headphones.

Technical Specifications:

Dimensions: 13 x 6 x 3 (cm)
Weight: 223 gm
Frequency: 40 kHz
Range: 22 m using the EP 500 Ultrasonic air leak detector
Range: 27 m using the EP2400 Ultrasonic detector
Range: 27 m using the LKS 1000 Leakshooter Ultrasonic detector
Metal tank: max. app. 1000 litres

There is a 2 year warranty on all EP ultrasonic detectors.
