PQ - BT Series Wireless 3-in-1 Multi-function Pipe Leak Detector

Instrument Introduction

  PQ - BT series wireless multifunctional leak detector is a new generation of multifunctional wireless leak detector independently researched and developed by our institute, specifically for detecting pressure pipeline leakage and pipeline direction. This series of instruments can effectively and conveniently solve the leakage problem of external pressure pipeline by collecting and analyzing the sound and signal of leakage or the gas of the pipeline leak. By installing a sound device at the pipeline interface, it can also accurately locate the location and direction of underground metal and non-metal pipelines. It is suitable for inspection of leaks and pipeline directions of tap water, fire fighting, and heating pipelines on the external network.

  • PQWT


Operating Principle

 Acoustic Detection Function: By using the sensor to collect the sound and display signal of pipeline leakage, the collected signal is sent to the host wireless, after the host signal is processed, it is displayed on the host interface in the form of signal columns and values. At the same time, the sound will also be sent to the wireless headset through the host , Through the combination of "listening" and "seeing" two ways to analyze and determine the leaking point.

 Gas Detection Function: By injecting hydrogen and nitrogen mixed gas into the pipeline, use a dedicated hydrogen sensor to collect and analyze the leaked hydrogen, detect the leaked hydrogen content, display it on the host interface in the form of signal columns and values, and observe the size changes of the hydrogen content. When the measured position signal column is the highest and the value is the largest, it can be judged that the position is a pipeline leak.

 Pipeline Locating function: When the direction of the pipeline is unknown, a sounding device can be installed at the pipeline interface. The device generates a specific sound wave signal mixed with multiple frequencies in the pipeline. The signal is transmitted horizontally along the pipeline in both directions and vertically transmitted to the ground, using the host and the sensor collect this specific sound wave signal on the ground and analyze its strength to accurately locate the orientation and direction of underground metal and non-metal pipelines.

It can be fine-tuned according to the actual detection environment and different situations, until the sound heard is clear.


Note: Start testing along the pipeline. In the process of leak detection on the external network, because the pipeline covers a large area, a general survey of the suspicious area can be carried out from the valve well or the fire hydrant first. Compare each point by listening to the sound in the earphone and watching the change of the instrument value on the screen. When the instrument value is high and the sound of suspected water leakage is heard through the earphone, the area can be judged as the suspected water leakage area.

8.     Click1637197777(1)to exit the "General Detection" mode, and click "Locating" to enter the extranet -positioning interface according to the detection environment. As shown in Figure 6 below:


(figure 6)

Locating Mode Description:

(1)      The extranet -positioning interface can display the collected information of 12 points at the same time, by clicking any position in the column bar of the corresponding point, the signal column can be locked and the signal column can be refreshed, and the corresponding signal value display is displayed above the signal column;

(2)      There are 12 bars from left to right, and the detection needs to start from 01;

(3)      The columnar bars are divided into thick columnar bars and thin columnar bars. The thick columnar bars are collected stable signals, and the thin columnar bars are environmental instantaneous signals, which will change with the external environment. We mainly observe the thick bar signal;

(4)      Click any position in the corresponding columnar bar, a blue columnar bar will appear, and the signal value above the bar will appear in red, and the instrument will start to detect a stable signal;

(5)      After the thick columnar bar signal is completely stable and has not fallen, click any position in the columnar bar, and the blue bar will be locked and stationary. At this time, the color of the signal value is black, and the thin columnar bar does not change, indicating the locked state, indicating that the measurement point has been detected. Click again on any position in the columnar bar to refresh the bar to re-detection, and repeat the operation to confirm whether the signal at this point is true and effective.

(6)      Use the extranet -positioning mode to collect and compare the signals of relevant points in the suspected water leakage area, each detection point can be directly compared with the signal column, as shown in figure 6 above, detect and compare the signal strength of each point in turn from left to right. When the thick bar of the measured point is the highest and the value is the largest, it can be judged as a suspicious leaking point;

(7)      Click to export the pictures of each point detected in positioning mode and save it to the SD card. To view the saved pictures, you need to use USB to connect the computer or take out the SD card and use the card reader to connect the computer to view.

Status bar (operation prompt).

9.     For gas detection, click the "Gas Detection" icon on the main interface, and the wireless setting interface (as shown in Figure 3, follow the wireless setting method) will appear to enter the gas detection interface. As shown in Figure 7 below:

1. Connect the sensor to be used at the sensor connection and rotate it to right to mount it. (as shown in the figure). When using a large-size sensor, you can choose to mount the bottom fittings, single-point base and three-point base, both of which can be used on normal road surface, the single-point base is principally applied to flat road surface, In case of rugged road surface, it is recommended to use three-point base, because it can better contact the ground and collect sound signals. Equipped with two different bases, is to adapt to different detection road surface. If it is soil or soft pavement, you can use a sonde-type sensor to insert it into the soft soil. The insertion depth can be determined by selecting the sensor. When hydrogen gas detection is needed, just connect the hydrogen sensor.

2. Press the power switch to start the machine, the blue wireless matching indicator flashes(matching) and is steady on after the matching succeeds. The green power charging indicator is steady on.(Note: Frequent pressing of the power button will cause the controller to enter the power protection and cannot be turned on.

Sound Device

1. Find a pipe connection exposed on the ground in the area to be tested; (as shown in the figure below)


2. Confirm the emptying water and pipeline patency; (The pipe valve needs to be opened, as shown below)


3. Connect the sounding vibrator to the pipe with a suitable adapter. (As shown below)


4. Connect the sounding vibrator to the transmitter, turn the switch and power adjustment knob clockwise, turn on the power on the transmitter, and adjust the pointer on the switch and power adjustment knob to 90°. (As shown below)


Pipeline locating measurement method 1: Ring Detection Method

Take the sound vibrator as the center of the circle and form a circle with a radius of 2 meters. Detect on this circle, mark the highest value point of the signal, and then continuously increase the radius length. Each time the radius length is increased, a measurement is performed on this radius parameter. Finally, mark the maximum value of all signals and connect them into a line, which is the position of the pipe. As shown below:


Pipeline locating measurement method 2: Arc Cutting Method

On the basis of ring detection, the highest value of the signal detected in the ring is connected with the sounding vibrator to form a straight line, taking the sounding vibrator as the circle point, cut the straight line left and right in an arc-shaped way. Each time of cutting, mark the highest value point of the signal, and finally connect all the highest value mark points of the signal into a line, which is the position of the pipeline. (This method is a brief version of the ring measurement method, which can effectively improve the measurement efficiency). As shown in figure below:


Note: the above methods should be combined with the sound device.
