Leak detection spray
Leak detection spray, also known as leak detection solution or leak testing spray, is a liquid solution used to identify leaks in various systems and equipment.
The spray typically consists of a mixture of water and a surfactant or soap solution. The surfactant helps the solution form bubbles when exposed to escaping gas, making it easier to visually identify the location of the leak. When the solution is sprayed onto the suspected area, if there’s a leak, the escaping gas will cause bubbles to form at the site of the leak, making it clear where the issue is.
Preparation: Make sure the system you’re testing is operational and pressurised if it’s a gas or fluid system.
Application: Spray the leak detection solution over the area to be tested. This can include pipe joints, connections, valves, fittings, and other potential points of leakage.
Observation: Watch closely for the formation of bubbles. If there’s a leak, gas or fluid escaping from the leak point will cause the solution to form bubbles at that spot.
Identification: The location of the leak can be easily identified by the presence of bubbles. This helps technicians or operators pinpoint the issue and take appropriate actions to fix it.
Leak detection spray is a simple and effective method for identifying leaks, and it’s often preferred over more complex and expensive methods, especially for smaller-scale operations. It’s important to use appropriate caution when working with potentially hazardous gases or fluids, and to ensure proper ventilation in enclosed spaces to prevent exposure to harmful substances.
