Give your operators and technicians the MIDAS Touch Valve Leak Detection Equipment / Valve Condition Monitoring Equipment
MIDAS Meter ®


The MIDAS® Sensor design integrates the piezo-electric sensors, filters, amplifiers and processors into a single self-contained housing that is easily mounted on all shapes and sizes of valves and piping.

The specification and continuous integrity of the interface between an AE sensor and its mounting surface is critical to the long term reliability and stability of the sensor output. The MIDAS® Sensor design incorporates unique features to assure the long term reliability of its performance.
