About AMI

The story of Acoustic Monitoring International began in 1982, when Babcock and Wilcox developed sensors for leak detection for high-pressure boilers. After successful yet costly attempts at re-applying existing technologies to steam boiler leak detection, B&W contracted with Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection Technologies to design a special system to their particular specifications. HSBIT’s Micheal R. Shaw was given the task of designing the system—the ALL™ Acoustic Leak Locator.

After the initial installation of the ALL™ system at Alabama Power’s Gaston Station in 1991, B&W purchased HSBIT, and created TotalSCOPE Products and Services for boiler operating efficiency. Mike Shaw moved to Babcock & Wilcox at this time to continue his work with the ALL™ system.

In 1997, B&W sold the assets of the ALL™ System to Micheal R. Shaw, and Acoustic Monitoring International, Inc. was born.

AMI immediately began servicing units all over the world that were under B&W’s warranty, and continues to provide parts for all existing systems.

Since its inception, Acoustic Monitoring International has established over 35 new installations of the ALL™ system. With over 2,000 sensors in service in over 10 different countries, AMI’s ALL™ system has been thoroughly field-tested and is extremely reliable. AMI is constantly improving the system; the Acoustic Leak Locator is in its fourth generation.
