EXPOSED GEOMEMBRANE TESTING

SENSOR DDS® MIT

SENSOR DDS® MIT technology was developed specifically for the quality control of exposed geomembrane liners such as synthetic membranes / liners, or asphalt.

Even where the damage is less that 1mm² the equipment will generate an audio visual alarm to warn the Technician that damage has been encountered.

It is employed directly after the installation of a liner. The system electronically verifies the integrity of the entire surface including the welds. This enables us to find all defects (e.g. caused by transit, or following trades) down to pinhole sized damage.

All geomembrane liner installations should be thoroughly tested to ensure that complete integrity exists, prior to the placement of any covering media over the liner.

Defects in new liner installations are nearly always caused by following trades, testing therefore protects both the client and the installation contractor.

The standard quality control systems normally offered by liner installation contractors concentrate on installation defects. These controls will miss damage to the liner, particularly 3rd party damage.

SENSOR DDS® MIT technology will detect even the smallest pinhole of damage, but it cannot be used once the liner is covered.

 

 

The benefits of SENSOR DDS® MIT:

  • Transferred responsibility – Sensor takes responsibility for geomembrane integrity issuing a certificate accordingly, taking responsibility and therefore reducing your liability.
  • Low cost – The cost Sensor’s geomembrane integrity control is trivial when compared with the potential cost repairs and risk of consequential damages post-completion.
  • No installation needed – This method requires no permanent site installation, it is a very quick and reliable way to control quality to ensure no damage remains after installation of a geomembrane. 
  • Flexibility – One Sensor technician can control 10 000m² of the geomembrane per day.  We can engage up to five technicians and can therefore survey 50 000m² per day, so your project will never be late.

Sensor Arc Tester Applications

SENSOR DDS MIT Arc tester can be used on any non-conductive geomembrane (HDPE, LDPE, PVC, Bitumenous, etc.) or conductive-backed geomembrane. Bare geomembrane must be dry and reasonably clean. Among the most used applications are:

  • Roofs
  • Ponds
  • Water Reservoirs
  • Building Foundations
  • Balconies
  • Landfills
  • Mining Ponds
  • Tunnels
  • Bridges
  • Swimming Pools
  • Parking Decks
