Have you noticed that your 3D probe feels oily lately?

Mechanical 3D probes are filled with an oil. Split caps or ruptured internal bladders will result in oil seeping from the probe and you will notice this oil as a film on the outside of the probe.
After a short period of time, air will displace the oil within the transducer and the air bubbles will severely interfere with the imaging of the transducer.
If your transducer feels oily, send it to ProbeLogic today for an evaluation and repair before the slight leak becomes a huge problem.
