Listening Device for ‘Hands Free’ Leak Detection and Pinpointing

Posted: Friday 20th December 2013

Acoustic water leak detection technology leader HWM has launched the Bmic hands-free leak monitoring device. With a belt-mounted control unit for hands-free operation, the lightweight Bmic is comfortable, easy to use and provides high quality sound reproduction.

To avoid unnecessary excavation and ‘dry holes’ which do not expose the leak on an underground pipe, the Bmic helps leak technicians precisely pinpoint the leak location from the surface. Available as standard with the proven “elephant’s foot” windproof microphone or in the Bmic Lite package with a lightweight hand probe and “tripod foot”, it offers an economical way to improve the leak pinpointing and repair process for all levels of requirement.

The “elephant’s foot” microphone, planted on the ground at surface level, provides superior sound quality by reducing background noise, allowing the user to accurately identify where the leak is and exactly where any digging should take place. The hand probe option is also available to use with attachable tripod, or for making direct contact on accessible pipes and fittings - enabling the operator to carry out traditional acoustic surveys.

A simple push of the button on the belt-mounted control unit activates broad-band amplification technology to make the sound clearer and pinpointing even easier, and the windproof housing on the microphone coupled with the included studio quality headphones ensures the best possible audio quality.
