Apr. 30, 2018 – Identifying defects “quick and early,” the SDT Checkers, SDT’s new family of ultrasound detectors, strive to make ultrasound available to everyone.

The range, composed of four solutions, is designed for reliability departments adopting operator driven reliability (ODR), says SDT, adding that Checkers engage all stakeholders responsible for ensuring reliable operation of their assets prior to, during and after their shift. The LEAKChecker is designed to pinpoint pressure and vacuum leaks, while the LUBEChecker aims to optimize bearing lubrication, and the TRAPChecker assesses the condition of steam traps and valves. Rounding out the family is the TIGHTChecker, an ultrasound solution designed to verify the tightness of closed volumes. Each Checker features an on/off button and four function keys to control the intuitive graphical user interface.

“Part of our corporate vision is to help our customers create sustainable, world-class ultrasound programs,” says Andre Degraeve, managing director of SDT.
