Gas Tracer

We use Tracer Gas Technology when the leaks are difficult to locate; for example in long sections of pipe. Specialist safe gas is pressurised through the pipes and it is detected above the ground when it escapes through the leak area.

Acoustic Sound Equipment

Acoustic Sound Technology

Acoustic Leak Detection equipment can source leaks through most surface areas using body-sound (noise). Leaks are accurately located through pipe mapping, pre-location and ground sound profiling. Typical applications are within hot water & cold feeds.
