Ultrasound detectors designed with the right technology and software can be used for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance.  Using the UL101 regularly will minimize production downtime, improve quality control and safety and decrease man-hours by improving troubleshooting.


The CTRL UL101 ultrasound detector is capable of accurately interpreting the sounds created by under lubrication, over lubrication and early signs of wear.  The right ultrasound technology is a fast and effective means of determining such conditions in moving, mechanical components such as bearings, gearboxes, motors, compressors, etc.


  • Valve Inspection:  Save money by locating internal by-ass leaks with a single point inspection.
  • Motor Bearing & Gearbox Diagnostics:  Quickly identify bad bearings even before vibration or heat occurs.
  • Quality Control:  Develop test procedures that reduce waste and improve performance.
  • Non-Pressurized Vessel Testing:  Use the ultrasound transmitter to test the weld beads and gaskets of vessels without pressurizing.

Standard or intrinsically safe models: Intrinsically safe models can be used in explosive atmospheres.

Intrinsically Safe: ANSI/UL 913-88, for DIVISION 1, CLASS 1, Groups A, B, C and D, CLASS II, Groups E, F, G and CLASS III.  It also complies with DIVISION 2, CLASS 1, Groups A, B, C and D, CLASS II, Groups F, G, and CLASS III.
