The first permanent system for monitoring liner integrity was installed at hazardous landfill site near Bratislava in 1991 and the system is still in operation which only proves the working concept of long term hazardous site monitoring and environmental protection for all those years.
Over nearly 30 years of existence, Sensor has developed range of products under the trademark SENSOR DDS® and creates new industry known as an electric leak/damage detection & location systems. For one-time surveys with in-situ results we have portable devices for bare or covered lining systems. For permanent monitoring of liner integrity, we have developed fixed systems with either manual or fully automatic detection and location of the leaks in geomembrane.
In 2017 Sensor has introduced already 4th generation of its revolutionary system for bare liner testing – SENSOR DDS® MIT – Arc Tester which is even faster, more energy efficient and effective than the previous models.
All leak location systems are developed, designed and manufactured in Sensor in according to quality standards ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. The components of Sensor DDS® permanent systems are backed with BAM certification from German institute for material testing. BAM certificate guarantees the minimum lifespan of all Sensor DDS® permanent system components to be 30+ years.
SENSOR DDS® systems have been successfully applied in following industries:
- Mining industry – leach pads, tailing dams, process ponds, storm ponds etc.
- Waste industry – hazardous landfill, non-hazardous landfills, leachate lagoons, landfill capping
- Water industry – Potable water storage tanks, lakes, dams, evaporation ponds, sewerage treatments, water and sewage pipes
- Construction industry – green roofs, flat roofs, building foundations, data centre roofs
