How does the AE leak detector work? (method)

I want to know the method of leak detection using acoustic emission
Thank you

Re: How does the AE leak detector work? (method)
As with many questions you need to specify the application. AE is a transient wave generated by a source mechanism. It is the origin of the source which affects how and when you can detect the signal along with issues such as wave propogation and attenuation. In leak detection the source is often turbulence by the passage of gas or liquid through a hole (simplistic). This generates an AE signal which then can be detected by correctly placed sensors which may be as simple as a hydrophone or a piezo resonant sensor.
The source origin mechanism may be more complex than described here and so may the sensor solution but that is basically what happens. if you need more please email me directly.

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
