SF6 Leak Pointer / Sniffer

For quick detection of small SF6 leaks


The lightweight, cordless SF6 Leak Pointer can detect SF6 gas leaks in seven different sensitivity levels. This handheld device has a response rate of less than one second. The sniffer device utilizes the high voltage ionization measuring principle. The SF6 Leak Sniffer is easy to operate with one hand and ideal for detecting the location of small SF6 gas leaks. Leakage data is clearly presented on an LED display. In addition, an audible alarm alerts the user to the presence of SF6 leaks. The detector clears itself quickly, even after detecting large SF6 leaks. The SF6 Leak Sniffer gas detector comes in a study carrying case. The power supply is two "C" cell alkaline batteries, eliminating the need to charge the device. The SF6 sniffer compensates for external influences such as movement of air in the room and also operates in a wide range of temperatures, from 32 to 1260F. These features make it perfect for using to sense leaks in the field. The Dilo SF6 Leak Pointer is known and loved across the electrical transmission and distribution, industrial processing, and manufacturing industries.

Other SF6 Leak Detector / Sniffer Features:

  • Rapid response rate of less than one second
  • Low recovery time of less than one second
  • Detection of leaks of up to 5g per year 
  • Seven (7) levels of sensitivity provide an increase of up to 64x
  • Temperature-compensated
  • LED Display
  • Microprocessor control, with Advanced Digital Signal Processing
  • 18 levels of alarm indication
  • Tricolor visual LED display
  • Tactile Keypad controls
  • Real-time sensitivity adjustment

While the SF6 leak sniffer is good for detecting small leaks fast, for a more robust inspection we suggest using our advanced and portable SF6 gas leak detector.


Alarm Indications

The DILO SF6 features 18 alarm levels. This permits a clear indication of relative leak size and strength.The progressive indicators can be used to hone-in on a leak; as the increasing alarm levels indicate that the source (highest concentration) is being approached. Each level is indicated by additional LED’s in one of three colors, Green, Orange or Red.

At first the display will light Green, from left to right. Then, the LED’s will light Orange, from left to right, replacing the Green one at a time. Finally, the LED’s will light Red, from left to right, replacing the Orange, one at a time.
