Source: ADS Environmental Services

ADS LLC today announces the ADS Hykron™ Leak Listening System. It is a listening device that provides high acoustic sensitivity for checking leak noises at water fittings, hydrants, and valves. Powered by technology from Primayer Ltd., the ADS Hykron is simple-to-use and supported by the U.S. based ADS Environmental Services® for fast, responsive, customer service.

“At ADS, our mission is to detect inefficiencies in water transportation,” states Hal Kimbrough, Vice President of Business Development at ADS LLC. “The money lost to leakage is getting worse at a time when money is harder to come by. The Hykron is an extremely cost effective tool for fighting the battle against leakage.”

The Hykron operates on the principle of detecting acoustic leak noise. As leak noise travels through water and the pipe wall, it can be detected by listening at valves, hydrants, or any available fitting on the pipe. The Hykron detects leak noise through its highly sensitive, built-in electronic sensor. Listening is conducted via the headphones with an extension rod and magnetic attachment.

This entry-level system provides state-of-the-art electronics for improved signal to noise ratio. The Hykron’s low cost, sensitive acoustics, easy operation, durable construction, and alkaline battery with easy field replacement make it an ideal tool for a water crew’s standard tool chest. It comes packaged in a convenient carry case with: handheld electronic sensor; amplifier with belt attachment; extension rods; magnet attachment; and high quality headphones.

The Hykron is one of many new products from ADS in a full line of cost-efficient, advanced water loss control products for leak detection and flow measurement. These technologically innovative instruments form an integrated approach to system monitoring and leakage control for water distribution networks. The Hykron comes with a 2 year hassle-free warranty. Products can be purchased through an experienced sales team or bought online at ADS also offers field experts with over 113 years in the water services business as the Pitometer Group.
