How to Purchase a used Ultra Probe for Air Leak Detection

What to look for when you purchase a Used Ultra Probe UE100

Greetings Today we’re going to look at UE systems Ultra Probe 100

This is an analog ultra pro we’re going to look at what should be in the kit…

For sure you should have a manual it has many pages of terrific information…

Number one it’s gonna show you what should be in the Kit… these units should hve sensors for sensing air leaks and for sensing steam traps…

These units can also detect corona in electrical cabinets but are mainly for detecting  bearing near failure…and Air leaks ..

The next thing we want to look at in your kit are extension rods…These can get to a bearing 36 inches away to stay safely away from rotating equipment…

On the actual gun itself, is the battery up to snuff?

Are the ear pads in good shape? We have a good selection of replacement pads, so everyone unit goes out with a new pair of ear pads on the headset…

When you’re looking at the gun does it have all the sensors?  You’ll find on eBay some units have no sensors at all it’s virtually a worthless tool… this unit will sense for air leaks the other one will sense for steam traps

Make sure the battery is in good shape… Every unit we refurbish gets brand new batteries so that you don’t need to worry… With reasonable use they last for a year.

When we look at some kits they come with a blank out  that is for is for a warble tone generator… If you’re looking for a leak in a tank is a very handy…  This is a $200 adder and typically most do not come with them… But if it does it makes that unit more valuable… Items you want to look for if you’re going to purchase a used Ultra Probe, 

Make sure you have new ear pads, new batteries,  test it if you can… We make sure that they work and they have all the required parts…
