Save Energy Costs, Improve Efficiency, Maintain Uptime



Acoustic Imaging for the Automotive Industry

si124_compressed air_composite.pngThe automotive industry uses vast amounts of compressed air, which makes timely air leak detection vital for cost and energy efficiency as well as operational continuity.

Enter the acoustic camera, an advanced predictive maintenance solution that scans large areas and pinpoints the exact location of compressed air leaks. Acoustic imagers such as the FLIR Si-Series can be used to find hidden compressed air leaks without shutting down operations. What's more—they can be a key tool for maintaining quality control by detecting miniscule vacuum leaks that could introduce air into engine systems, reducing overall efficiency and potentially causing engine misfires.
