LeakSeek™ is a sensitive and versatile acoustic leak detection process that can detect leaks at low pressure throughout all phases of plant operation, from new construction to full service. Our trained and experienced technicians use highly sensitive acoustic devices to locate leaks in the presence of any compressed air or gas system.

Benefits of LeakSeek
LeakSeek is faster than alternatives such as the soap and bubble method or pressure decay tests. Our skilled technicians can often test an entire new construction site in under two hours, getting you to production sooner.
LeakSeek can detect any medium, including air, nitrogen, and helium. Because it works with what you already have on site, there’s no need to change your leak testing materials at all.
Our skilled technicians can find leaks at pressures as low as 6 psi with LeakSeek, allowing leaks to be detected without coming up to full operating pressure. This increases the safety and reduces the time and materials needed for the procedure, thereby reducing cost as well.
The sensitivity and speed of our LeakSeek service allows our technicians to find leaks early, even on flanges that aren’t being tested directly, providing a window of opportunity to correct leaks before they become dangerous.
LeakSeek can detect leaks at all phases of plant operation, from new construction to in production.
Commissioning and Startup
Shave hours from your pre-startup testing with our LeakSeek service. With Leakseek, clients can achieve up to 80%-time reduction vs conventional testing methodologies.
LeakSeek can also be used on plants in production to check small areas where a drop in pressure has been detected or a leak is suspected.
Before turnaround, use our LeakSeek service to identify areas that require maintenance for leaks. LeakSeek can help you target your turnarounds, increasing efficiency and getting you back to production sooner.
Our LeakSeek service will help your technicians identify leaks during turnaround, too. Because leaks can be detected at low psi, it’s not necessary to bring sections up to operating pressures in order to detect leaks.
Challenges of acoustic leak detection
Plants in all stages of operation generate a great deal of noise. Because acoustic technology does not differentiate between the sound of leaks and the other sounds present in a typical plant, untrained technicians will have considerable difficulty determining which sounds indicate leaks. Such difficulty could result in missed leaks and in unnecessarily breaking down areas without problem. Due to these challenges, this technology is not available for rent and instead requires skilled, trained operators to produce reliable results.
How can INTEGRA help?
Our technicians have the training, experience, and history of accuracy necessary to differentiate between typical plant background noises and sounds that indicate leaks, detecting relevant problem areas and eliminating false positives. Our LeakSeek service can help you identify problem areas at every stage of operation, better, faster, and safer. Find out how today.
