Range of Use
The Aqua M-100 D is used in the water supply business to pre-locale (testrod) and to calibrate leakages (geophone). In combination with the Pulse Wave Generator (FWG), it can also be applied to trace the run of a pipeline.
The testrod has been developed by F.A.S.T. GmbH and features an extremely high sensitivity. It has been designed to detect even minute leakages. The variable testrod is perfectly well suited to listen to water meters and to systematically check pipeline network sections.
The sheltered ground pick-up is capable of pinpointing leakages. The tripod can be mounted on a magnet thus enabling the operator to carry our measurements on soft ground.
Besides 6 different filter options, the operator can set the level indicator to minimum value, average value, and FWG level value. The integrated memory saves the measurement readings. With this feature, the operator can easily compare the acquired noises with each other. This noticeably supports the exact leakage locating process.
Illuminated Level Indication Display
The light for the level indication display is switched on and off automatically depending on the lighting conditions on the spot.
If operation of the Aqua M-100D is discontinued for more than one minute, the device will be switched off automatically. This shut-down feature considerably prolongs the operating time of the geophone. Under normal conditions, the accumulators of the Aqua M-100D are operational for up to 10 weeks without being recharged. An LED display informs the operator about the condition of the rechargeable accumulators.
