In today’s business environment, a leak detection is an essential tool for companies involved with liquid transportation and storage. Liquid leaks can occur in any number of places and systems if they are not detected early enough, can result in massive loss. These systems include heating, cooling, and water pipes. As you can imagine, these systems require stringent adherence to safety standards in order to keep staff safe while doing their work and reducing risk to the public. ADI‘s anti-leak devices and equipment are designed to ensure that the correct anti-leaking practices are adhered to, whilst also reducing risks to the public.
ADI Leak Detection Technology and Methods
There are many different ways leak detection can be carried out, but typically a pipeline system will be one of the first places to be investigated using leak detection technology. In most instances, leak detection is undertaken by means of hydrostatic tests, which are conducted in order to identify leaks at various depths within a pipeline. If this preliminary detection method is unsuccessful, then a more advanced method of leak detection will need to be used, such as hydrostatic discharge. Once a leak detection problem has been identified, ADI will use state of the art technology and equipment to locate and identify the source of the leak, whether it be a pipeline drainage pipe or other drainage system.
Some common methods of leak detection utilise infrared imaging to locate leaks, this is commonly used when surface leaks are suspected. Other methods use magnetic bubbles to locate leaks, or leak detection through the use of sound waves. There are many other methods which may be required in order to locate and identify leaks, but the primary objectives of leak detection using ADI’s high quality equipment remains the same: to identify the source of any leaks, and prevent further damage to property and infrastructure. This is why ADI has received funding from government and private sector sources in the UK and USA to continue researching new technologies and equipment that improve leak detection capabilities.
