Probes that permit ultrasonic inspections to be performed in difficult-to-access areas are available as options to the manufacturer's line of ultrasonic detectors. These sensors plug into the pistol-shaped instruments, allowing accurate readings of pressurized gas leaks such as compressed air and steam or vacuum leaks in tight places. Models include U-Bend, a bendable probe that fits Ultraprobe digital models 10,000 and 9000 and analog models 2000 and 100. Tele-Bend is a telescoping version available for models 10,000, 9000, and 2000, which extends up to 56 inches to reach overhead or other hard-to-reach targets.
