Mikron

Mikron® THE MOST ADVANCED ACOUSTIC
LEAK LOCATION SYSTEM

The Mikron design uses an advanced sensor that incorporates low-noise processing electronics. This provides the best acoustic performance over a wide frequency range. Mikron includes a Minimum Noise Level measurement system. Mikron is the most advanced high performance leak locator available.

Features:

Exceptionally high acoustic sensitivity
System Options – Acoustic probe or Ground microphone or combined options
The latest ground microphone with wind-noise reduction
Minimum Noise Level detection methods are used
A lightweight amplifier with clear digital readout
Simple and easy to use
H2oNet mikron


Operation:

Principle

Leaks in water pipes generate noise that Mikron® detects. Leak noises travel through water and pipe walls and can be detected when listening at hydrants and valves. Leak noises also propagate from the leak point to the ground surface. This can be detected using the sensitive ground microphone.

Minimum Noise Level digital display

Accurate leak pinpointing is enabled because Mikron® displays the Minimum Noise Level.  Background noise levels which will include the leak noise are filtered out to exclude other noises like road traffic. Mikron® displays the two previous Minimum Noise Level readings so that the user can tell if they are moving toward or away from a leak point. The current acoustic level, volume position and battery charge are also displayed.
Mikron® provides excellent acoustic performance – hearing is believing!
