FREE: Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

The 3000 has been labeled a “green” instrument for its ability to accurately detect energy waste. Understanding the continued emphasis by plant managers for energy efficient plant operations, UE Systems designed the 3000 to significantly impact energy conservation by locating compressed air and steam trap leaks as well as faulty steam traps, which can lead to millions of dollars in energy waste.

“Among our leading instruments with regard to sales, the Ultraprobe 3000 has proven to be one of the most reliable in detecting energy related problems throughout the plant”, said Alan Bandes, Vice President of Marketing for UE Systems. “Since its launch, we estimate that the 3000 has already saved our clients hundreds of thousands of dollars in energy waste and increased production.”

Using UE Systems data management software (DMS), plant technicians can download data from a leak survey, and in real-time, generate reports that demonstrate loss and existing carbon footprint, as well as cost reduction and energy savings.

This digital instrument is fully equipped with a wide, dynamic sensitivity range and UE Systems unique “spin and click” sensitivity/feature control dial.  It displays intensity values in decibels along with a 16 segment bar graph display panel to provide a visual indication of sound levels. Other features include: storage location, storage location number, battery level indication and 400 memory locations to hold all of the operator’s test data.

Optional accessories including a long range module to locate leaks at a distance, such as in ceilings, a holster set, and a magnetically mounted transducer can be added to the basic kit.
