Lead and silver smelting company Britannia have named the CygScope their best equipment purchase of 2010, claiming that it has made their jobs easier and safer.

The efficiency of the vacuum in the silver production process is paramount to producing a high product yield and leaks can waste 20-30% of a compressor’s output. The CygScope uses detection of ultrasound to allow the user to quickly and accurately pinpoint leaks in industrial plant and machinery.

Not only has the CygScope improved the ability of the maintenance department to detect leaks, it has ensured greater safety in the leak detection process. The parabolic probe has meant that they are now able to carry out checks from a distance in areas previously inaccessible due to heat or height, effectively eliminating missed leaks.

Roy Blowers, Maintenance Supervisor, commented “The CygsScope is, without doubt, one of the best equipment purchases we have made in 2010. It has not only made our job easier, but has already paid for itself.”
