Users of systems dependent on industrial heat exchangers for cooling often know that they have a problem, but not always. As a matter of procedure, MechPro technicians perform ultraviolet leak detection on every heat exchanger plate looking for pinholes. Leak detection is either performed during routine, scheduled maintenance or as a diagnostic procedure while troubleshooting causes of performance inefficiencies.
Ultraviolet Leak Detection in Practice
Here is an example of what MechPro’s leak detection service can uncover. Zooming in on this heat exchanger plate reveals three pinholes in one of the channels which would not be easily detected by a simple visual inspection.
