Sensor DDS® LID
A patented system for leak location in underground pipes for any liquid and any pipe material.
The LID method avoids all of the issues of historical leak detection and location techniques by avoiding all traditional parameters and instead directly measuring for leakage in the electrophysical properties of the ground around the pipe.
THE BIGGEST BENEFITS OF SENSOR LID:
– Not affected by noise
– Not affected by pressure
– Not affected by pipes
– Not a skilled process
– It is a definitive result
– Testing process very fast
– Multiple leak detection (in close proximity)
MONITORING NEW PIPE INSTALLATIONS
The best time to install the LID system is at the same time as the pipe itself. Pipes often leak from the moment they are covered for a wide variety of reasons. Installations with new pipes are very low cost and will allow the maximum lifespan of the pipe itself to be. Large pipes require multiple sensing elements.
Sensing Element (SE) positioned on pipe bedding
Installation is simple and unskilled, the sensing element simply needs to be placed close and approximately parallel to the pipe it will monitor.
EASY AS: 123
MONITORING EXISTING PIPE INSTALLATIONS
The LID sensing element is installed at a nominal depth of around 300mm, the path of the sensing element needs to follow the path of the existing pipe beneath.
METALLIC PIPES: An electrical connection is made to the pipe and the installation will then behave in the same way as a LID sensing element installed with a new pipe.
NON-METALLIC PIPES: The LID sensing element is placed to run within the shallow 300mm trench however additional vertical runs are required.
