The PHD 2-40 is designed to be a fully portable test instrument delivering an adjustable stabilized DC output voltage of 2-40KV for the detection of pinholes, porosity or holidays in dielectric (insulating) type protective coatings applied to metal, concrete or asbestos cement substrates.  Fault detection is by audible alarm, illumination of red LED on the front panel, visual spark from the search electrode and drop in the pre-set voltage as shown on the output meter.

The Pipeline Test Kit includes the PHD 2-40 DC holiday detector with shoulder bag, charger lead, trailing earth lead, test probe handle with HV lead & pressure safety switch, 460mm (18”) long extension rod, electrode shoe, 250mm (10”) phosphor bronze brush electrode, test voltage calculator.
