Acoustic Leak Detection
Water creates a specific noise when it leaks through burst pipes. This is what acoustic leak detectors look for when locating a leaky pipe. Water leaks produce high-frequency to low-frequency noise that can easily be picked up by acoustic detectors.
Thermal imaging is a method of using infrared radiation and thermal energy to locate and identify hot pipe work within wall cavities, ceiling spaces and under floors.
Leak Detection Using Tracer Gas
Using tracer gas is a proven method of locating and pinpointing hard to find leaks.
Pressure & Static Testing
Hydrostatic testing is used to find leaks in pressurized systems. Pipelines, plumbing, boilers, fuel tanks, and gas cylinders are commonly tested with this method.
Gas Leak Detection
When underground natural gas pipes leak, it is often due to external damage to the buried pipe. Digging, excavation and corrosion are a few common causes of natural gas leaks.
ACCURATE LOCATION FINDING
Our leak detection services can help you find and pinpoint the location of hidden leaks in water and gas lines on both commercial and residential properties. By using our customised process and a combination of acoustic ground microphone, acoustic correlating logger, and tracer gas detection technology, we are capable of finding leaks in the following types of water and gas lines and pipe materials:
- Government & Council Water Mains, and Associated Infrastructure
- Domestic Water Services (Internal & External)
- Commercial Water Mains (Internal & External)
- Commercial Fire Services
- Rising Mains
- Pump Lines
- Rural Water Supply Pipework
- Heating Lines
- Cooling Lines
- Steam Lines
- Commercial Gas Lines
- Domestic Gas Lines
- Pressurised Gas Services
- Ductile Iron – DICL
- PVC (Polyvinyl chloride)
- LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene)
- MDPE (Medium-Density Polyethylene)
- HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene)
- PEX – Rehau/Auspex and all similar types
- Plain Concrete & Reinforced Concrete
If you have any questions related to a leak on any type of pipeline, contact our team and we will discuss and work through your issue, then discuss a method of detection that will locate and resolve your issue.
