AM20_AcousticMonitor

The Accutech AM20 acoustic monitor field unit is designed to monitor applications that generate ultrasound in the 37.5 kHz to 42.5 kHz range. Pressure relief valves, steam traps, automatic tank cleaning (Clean-In-Place) and other systems will benefit from the product's integrated acoustic transducer, antenna and power source.

The Accutech AM20 acoustic monitor field unit is designed to monitor applications that generate ultrasound in the 37.5 kHz to 42.5 kHz range. Pressure relief valves, steam traps, automatic tank cleaning (Clean-In-Place) and other systems will benefit from the product's integrated acoustic transducer, antenna and power source. The AM20 can also monitor on/off conditions of compressors and pumps, and operate as a flow switch.

The AM20 is suitable for compressible fluid applications but is not recommended for incompressible fluids, other than flow switch or other on/off applications.

The effectiveness of the acoustic measurement varies under different industrial environments, but has been demonstrated to work under the following conditions:

  • Leak detection, steam: 30PSIG min.
  • Leak detection, other gas: 50PSIG min.
  • Leak rate: 6 standard cubic feet per hour (SCFH) at 100 PSIG min.
