Manufacturing programme Instrotech produces instruments for process measurement, calibration and control, including calibrators, weighing electronics, signal conditioners, digital panel meters and acoustic steam leak detection systems.
Tube Leak Detection System In 1984 Instrotech produced a computer-based acoustic tube leak detection system for use on large boilers. This system uses Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT) for generation of audio spectrums and computer analysis to determine the size and location of steam leaks. Dubbed INSPECTA FFT leak detection systems, it has been installed on major projects’ gassifiers, oxygen plants and power station boilers in South Africa, Germany, Australia, Turkey, India, Malaysia and China.
R&D Instrotech’s advanced R&D laboratories design cutting-edge products in process control and instrumentation from digital indicators, weighing electronics, din-rail mount signal conditioners to a range of CALOG calibrators and RALLYTIME GPS motor sport timing equipment.
