SDT provides a total ultrasound monitoring solution in one system. SDT 200/SDT 270 fits your budget today, grows with your needs tomorrow, and keeps pace with the evolving needs of predictive maintenance and reliability professionals for the future.

Ultrasonic detection is the most versatile technology available today. With the SDT 200/SDT 270 for industry and the Sherlog TA for marine, virtually any inspection is achievable, and the possibilities are endless.

SDT270 Ultrasonic leak detection kits & Accessories

Your compressed air leak program is complete with the SDT270 Leak Surveyor Kit.

Finding compressed air leaks in a high noise environment is best done with an ultrasound detector. The SDT270 Leak Surveyor Kit is configured to make the job safe, easy, and fun.
When selecting the accessories for this kit our focus was on safety and comfort first. The leak surveyor kit is equipped with sensors to ensure all leaks are found and tagged without compromising operator safety.
The SDT270 comes equipped with an internal airborne sensor, great for finding easy to reach leaks common to most compressed air systems. This default sensor powers up automatically when the instrument is switched on.

  Basic kit

The SDT Leak Surveyor Basic enhances leak detection by including sensors that extend the versatility of the SDT270SB (Static/Basic). This kit is designed for speedy surveys that are mindful of your safety and comfort. Included in the kit:
  • SDT270SB (Static measurements)
  • Flexible sensor
  • Extended distance horn.
  • Pro kit

    The SDT Leak Surveyor Pro features the SDT270SD (Static/Datadump) receiver with built-in internal airborne ultrasound sensor. The 270SD has a 100 node memory and transfers stored measurements as XML report. In addition to the Leak Surveyor Basic is included the parabolic sensor with laser pointer. Use this sensor for inspecting leaks in ceiling pipes where pinpoint laser accuracy is required. Included in the kit:
  • SDT270SD (Static measurements + Datadump software)
  • Flexible sensor
  • Extended distance horn
  • Parabolic sensor with laser pointer.
  •   Intermediate version

    Intermediate version or useful option before Leak Detection Pro Kit: the SDT270SS (Static/ Storage). The 270SS platform features a generic onboard memory for storing data captured with any ultrasonic sensor. The structure of the memory is a 100 node fixed tree named node 1 through node 100. Data can be viewed on the LCD of the SDT270SS.
    Internal ultrasound sensor

    The use of the Internal US Sensor is recommended only when a direct and easy access to the equipment to be controlled is possible. For this configuration, its sensitivity is sufficient.
    The use of the precision rubber, when mounted on the ultrasound sensor, reduces the effect of competing ultrasound sources.
    Flexible sensor

    The sensitivity of the flexible sensor is similar to the sensitivity of the internal ultrasonic sensor. Consequently, its use is also recommended when elements to be controlled are directly accessible. On the other hand, its ergonomics makes easy to check elements difficult to reach or control high densities of pneumatic equipment. The flexible sensor is then the most powerful sensor when facing these kinds of configuration. Consequently, the flexible sensor should be used in complement of the extended distance sensor to pinpoint the leak spot.
    Extended distance horn

    The extended distance horn is remarkable for its sensitivity: it is 20 times more sensitive than both the internal ultrasonic sensor and the flexible sensor. 20 more times represent a gain of 26 dBµV. Consequently, the extended distance horn should be used in priority and especially when leaks are going to be quite small (i.e. vacuum leak) or if you might be up to 5 meters away from the leak.
    However its use could be delicate for the zones with a difficult access. In the same way, the precise localization of the defective element could be arduous when controlling high density of pneumatic equipment.
    Parabolic sensor

    When the zones to be controlled are more than 5 meters away, the parabola is the best suited sensor. To the contrary, its use is not recommended for short distance detection. Its sensitivity is better than the extended distance horn for long range, but especially its laser makes it possible to remotely locate the defective element precisely.
    Headphones for ultrasound detector

    These noise isolating headphones allow you to work in environments with up to 130 dB A-weighted noise. Since they drastically reduce your perception of background noise, they let you focus on the sounds you need to hear. Depending on your needs, it is available in three versions: headband (with collapsible headband for convenient storage), neckband (for situations where the headband must not be in the way, for use with or without a helmet) and safety helmet attached.

    Loudspeaker for ultrasonic detector

    The SDT loudspeaker is designed for the SDT ultrasonic detectors.Generally the loudspeaker replaces the headphone in measurement situations without noisy and disturbing surrounding sounds. It is a very easy tool for tightness testing situations where ultrasonic transmitters are used and for electrical inspection applications. It is equipped with a metal clip which makes it easy to affix on a belt or shirt pocket.
