The electronically controlled valve leak detector VLD is an independent unit designed for in-line installation in a chain conveyor.
The VLD is fully automatic and performs a leak test (identifies the actual leak rate) on the cylinder valve and valve thread with MAKEEN Energy’s unique infrared leak test head CIR-II. The test result is compared to a preset permitted maximum leak rate according to applicable norm/legislation. This comparison decides whether the cylinder can be approved or rejected. The leak test is only possible if the cylinder contains gas.
The unit is compatible with MAKEEN Energy's Industry 4.0 Digital Solution, which enables data capturing of the process for remote supervision, performance optimisation, and predictive/preventive maintenance alerts through e.g. a MAKEEN Energy cloud solution (optional).
