Over the years, the technology for leak testing LPG cylinders has improved significantly. One of the first electronic leak detectors was introduced to the market back in 1988. Since then, the research and development that MAKEEN Energy has been most occupied with throughout the years has mainly been aimed at optimising leak detection of the area around the cylinder valve and the valve itself. But some of our trusted customers might remember the water “bath”, where we’ve enabled manual testing of the whole cylinder as well. This was a time-consuming and costly way of testing for body leaks by immersion into water, with an additional risk of human error.
As a logical next step, MAKEEN Energy has recently focused on optimising leak testing of the whole cylinder body – and we’re very happy to be able to introduce our new Body Leak Detector to the market. Our innovative product can detect leaks on the whole cylinder body using IR technology. It is high-capacity and electronic, it highly improves customer safety, and it has been developed in cooperation with major LPG cylinder distributors. Our Body Leak Detector utilises a closed-loop position for 360 degrees detecting, building on our ground-breaking FLEXSPEED technology, and it tests all filled cylinders in the same condition as the end-user, which further increases the safety for the end user.
It detects leaks higher than 0,5g/hour and it has the capacity of 1800 cylinders/hour – the test result is 100% repeatable and reliable thanks to intrinsically safe infrared detection technology. Furthermore, the Body Leak Detector is part of MAKEEN Energy’s Industry 4.0 Solutions, which means that there’s access to real-time data from all connected filling facilities.
