ONE-TIME OR REGULAR CONTROL OF LIQUID TIGHTNESS
We determine the liquid-tightness of sealing systems first in an one-time overview measurement. Only in case of leakage, a detailed measurement is carried out to localize the leakage in the context of AS 6702 or other environmental regulations.
Efficient certified quality control of the tightness of sealing
Detailed mobile measurements enable fast and targeted repair works.
in filled basins
Time & cost efficiently without cleaning the basins
Measuring large areas also under difficult conditions
Clients get a report with a clear result drawing.
Our processes are certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 (in NL).
WHAT SETS US APART
WE ARE SPECIALISTS IN DETECTING LEAKS
YOU BENEFIT FROM OUR SERVICE AND KNOW-HOW
One of the major advantages of our patented leak detection technologies is that the sealing constructions do not have to be emptied or cleaned, and do not interrupt the production. This saves the client a lot of time and money.
The purpose of tight-untight measurements is the proof for the client that the waterproofing of their installations are tight and secure for the environment.
We perform a geo-electrical measurement, if a visual inspection is not possible for instance when the construction is covered with contaminated soil or if a construction is filled with liquid.
When we prove the sealing is tight, the client will receive a certificate.
WE CAN SUPPORT YOU
- Proof of tightness with certificate
- Regular or individual inspections
- Define the exact location of the damage
- Quality control during and after the process of repair
HOW IT WORKS
ACCURATE AND RELIABLE TIGHTNESS CONTROL
OR LEAK DETECTION ON SURFACE OR UNDER WATER
Leakages in horizontal and vertical sealing systems can be detected accurately, reliably and mostly non-destructively with our leak detection technology.
Texplor’s mobile leak detection measurements are carried out either with the single-sensor leak detection method (EFT®) or a the multi-sensor method (FGM®) to prove the tightness of the waterproofing or locate the leaks.
We place an electrode outside the construction for example in a well and send electrical tracers to our sensors. We place the sensors in a grid either directly on the ground or in the water which are connected with cables to our FGM® measuring units or the mobile EFT® data logger.
Our measurements can be carried out regardless of the construction material.
Special software is used for the measurements and data evaluation.
In the Netherlands we investigate the tightness of sealings or construction of our clients every 6 years according to the state regulations. The results are presented in a report and displayed for the client an overview map of the investigated area.
This evaluation of the results can be used to carry out a targeted and cost-effective repair of the waterproofing.
Our leak detection services do not include repair works.
SAVE TIME AND MONEY
- First step is a tight-untight measurement
- Second step, if there is a leakage, we localise it in a more detailed measurement.
QUALITY AND RELIABILITY THROUGH PATENTED TECHNOLOGIES
From the start of our business we have specialized in research and development on inspection technologies for sealing systems in civil and structural engineering. Our technologies are patented and developed in-house. Our processes are certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 45001 (in the Netherlands)
FGM® LEAK DETECTION TECHNOLOGY
The FGM® (Flexible Groundwater Monitoring) is an electrical multi-sensor technology to investigate groundwater movement in the sub-surface and to detect leaks in sealing systems. We use this technology for surveying large areas with complex constructions.
It is a perfect method to detect water streaming through leakages in vertical and horizontal concrete, liner or steel constructions
EFT® LEAK DETECTION TECHNOLOGY
EFT® (Electric Flux Tracking) is developed as a flexible single sensor method to investigate sealing structures like building joints, wall to bottom slab connections, cracks in bottom slabs and horizontal waterproofing
In simple terms, it is an electrical method to trace the water flow between the leaks in the building to the defect in the exterior waterproofing.
