With the continuous development of urban construction, the pipeline system has become one of the most important infrastructures in modern cities. However, in the long-term use, pipeline system will inevitably be aging, damage and other problems, the most common of which is water leakage. Traditional water leak detection methods often require the removal of walls or floors, which is labor-intensive and costly, and difficult to locate with low accuracy. In recent years, with the continuous progress of technology, pipeline leak detector is gradually being widely used, greatly improving the detection accuracy and efficiency.

The working principle of pipeline leak detector is to use the transmission characteristics of ultrasonic waves, by sending and receiving acoustic signals to detect the location of pipeline leaks. When the water pipe is in a normal state, the acoustic signal along the pipe transmission speed is faster, and when the water pipe is damaged or leaking, the acoustic signal in the leakage encountered obstruction, the reflection time back will increase, by calculating the reflection time difference can determine the location of the leak. At the same time, pipeline leak detector will automatically record the location of the leak and related information, so that maintenance personnel can follow up.

The pipeline leak detector has a wide range of applications, not only for small pipeline systems in residential communities, but also for large pipeline systems in industrial areas, such as city water supply, gas, etc. In actual use, pipeline leak detector is easy to operate and highly accurate, without the need to remove walls or floors, greatly reducing maintenance costs and losses.

To sum up, pipeline leak detector is increasingly recognized and widely used because of its efficient and accurate detection method. It is believed that in the future, it will play an increasingly important role in pipeline system inspection and maintenance.
