Nuclear Power Stations Leak Detection UK

Leak Detection
at Nuclear Power Stations

LDS Leak Detection Specialists are the UK's No 1 for Commercial Leak Detection.
In operating Nuclear Power Stations, they have no greater responsibility than to protect the public, the environment and themselves from the potentially adverse effects of the technology. They are responsible for the safe operation of these facilities.  Their obligation, as a nuclear operator, is to protect the people of this country and the population worldwide by maintaining nuclear safety at all times.
Our senior engineers have been working within leak detection for over 20 years gaining knowledge and experience throughout the industry to include successfully finding water leaks at Nuclear Power Stations in the UK.
Our highly experienced engineers choose the most appropriate leak detection methods to accurately locate leaks at Nuclear Power Stations.
Here are just two leak detection examples of the water leaks LDS have recently found at Nuclear Power Stations in the UK.

Nuclear Power Station water leak found on the cooling pipeline:

A leak was suspected on the cooling pipeline, which was a backup to the main cooling line to the nuclear re-actor. Using Correlation and acoustics our leak detection engineers located the area of leakage on 125mm (OD) 163-meter carbon steel pipeline. Tracer gas leak detection was not recommended due to pipework and nature of the site, also a shut down of the system was impossible.

Nuclear Power Station water leak found on the Fire Mains:

A water leak was suspected on a Fire mains pipeline protecting a Nuclear power station. A 300mm in diameter and 166 meter cement lined cast iron pipe was losing pressure from 15 bar to 2 bar in a short space of time. Our Leak Detection engineers used various methods of leak detection and successfully confirmed the water leak using acoustics and correlation.  These methods of leak detection were chosen due to the nature of the site and to prevent downtime and shut downs for the clients.

Leak Detection Case Study - Central Heating Leak

LDS help you sleep at night

The Problem
The client approached LDS Leak Detection Specialists Ltd via the website. He was impressed with the knowledgeable & professional response from the UK technical call handler Mark. The client had been experiencing repeated pressure loss on the boiler. A new boiler had been installed yet still the pressure loss continued. This was causing a great deal of disruption in the household as the boiler was regularly cutting off when the system lost pressure. Therefore daily visits to the boiler were required to maintain the pressure sling with it the heating & hot water. The clients heating engineer confirmed that there was an on going leak on the heating pipework which led to the client researching LEAK DETECTION on the internet.

The Solution
Leak Detection Specialists appointed one of their regionally based engineers who attended the property at the agreed day and time. The boiler was checked again to confirm the leak to be on the heating circuit. A combination of methods were used in pin pointing a far from obvious leak site. There were areas of water damaged within the property however these were found to be the end point of the migrating moisture. The whole area where the leak was detected was visually dry & unaffected. Of everywhere in the property the area identified seemed to be a very unlikely area. However based on the readings detected & images taken the leak detection engineer confidently marked the area, despite there being no sign of a leak or leakage.

The Result
Thermal Imaging noted a few areas of concern as well as evidence of some water damage. Tracer gas eventually traced the leak to the hallway which visually appears to be unaffected.

The area marked was excavated by the clients heating engineers who initially exposed sound heating pipes near to the surface.The areas still appeared to be dry & leak free. A certain amount of doubt set in the minds of the contractors as to the leaks location. Armed with the detailed report & images from Leak Detection Specialists the client insisted that the excavations should continue deeper. At which point some 600 mm from the concrete floor level the leak site was visually confirmed. The solder around an old fitting had deteriorated causing the leak & subsequent pressure loss. The leak site was repaired with no further pressure loss & no further trips to the boiler to maintain pressure in the early hours of the morning.

Leak detection is not a matter of fancy gadgets finding your leak but rather the experience and knowledge that the engineers have using the equipment . Here at Leak Detection Specialists, we pride ourselves on having these skills. With our vast experience, our leak detection engineers will recommend what would be best suited to your application and what type of leak detection equipment is most likely to accurately locate your leak fast.
