Ultrasonic Sensor to Detect Holes in Steel and Plastic Drums

Westminster, Maryland-based CTRL Systems and Adria Machine have been given the US Department of Transportation (DOT) approval for the leak detection system customized specifically to detect holes 10/1000th of an inch in drums fabricated from steel and plastic. 

Both companies have been working together in an endeavor to integrate the ultrasonic sensing device.  DeWitt Barrel, a company that reconditions drums, has also received permission to deploy the device in its products.  The Reusable Industrial Packaging Association has co-operated with DOT to make sure that all products meet with the agency standards.

Bob Roche, chief executive officer at CTRL said in a statement that other companies that repair drums can also avail of the leak testing equipment from Adria Machine. All such organizations must take prior approval from the agency. CTRL has been developing ultrasound technology for power efficient specific monitoring systems featuring sensing devices and analysis software for use in both mechanical and rotating tools.
