Our engineers will locate the location of water pipes using acoustics and then use technology called hydrogen leak detection also known as tracer gas, containing hydrogen and nitrogen. Tracer gas can be used in both domestic and commercial proprietors.
Leak detection tracer gas is a non-invasive leak detection technology used by our engineers in combination with other leak detection methods giving you the very best leak detection service with results first time!
Why use hydrogen as the tracer gas?
Hydrogen, at 5% in a balance of nitrogen, is:
- non flammable
- non toxic
- non corrosive
- totally safe
- commonly used as a blanket gas in welding so is cheaply and readily available from all the standard gas suppliers
- has the smallest and lightest molecules so permeates all surfaces including concrete, tarmac, block paving and grass, rising quickly to the surface
- rapidly disperses in air allowing you to hone in quickly to the source
- unlike helium leak detection, which has also been used for some types of leak detection tracing, hydrogen is renewable and cheap; helium is finite and expensive
