Hydrotector

Hydrotector H2
Cable Leak Detector

The Hydrotector H2 is designed to precisely locate even smallest leaks in pressurized cables. It can be used for detection along cable routes, in manholes, at distribution cabinets, in cable vaults and at cable terminations. The Hydrotector H2 is also most suitable for locating leaks in pipes, containers etc.

As tracing gas for the leak location a mixture of 90 % nitrogen and 10 % hydrogen (shielding gas as used for welding) is injected into the cable. At the leak it escapes and diffuses even through bitumen and concrete surfaces to mark the fault location. With its built-in reference sensor the Hydrotector H2 can reliably distinguish between the tracing gas and environmental gases, such as exhaust emissions.

The separation of probe unit and operating unit allows for very flexible applications like in narrow manholes. If the measurement location is accessible even more difficult, the actual sensor can be detached easily from the probe unit.

The versatilely adjustable probe unit provides ergonomic work and can be stowed particularly compactly in the included case.
