History

Sensor was founded in 1990 and since then became the world’s leader in electronic leak detection and location

Sensor’s technology was successfully deployed at more than 1700 projects till the day protecting over seventeen million square metres of geomembrane liners worldwide.

Sensor has its offices in:

  • United Kingdom
  • Germany
  • Slovakia
  • Czech Republic
  • Turkey
  • Canada
  • Chile

And distribution partnerships in:

  • Japan
  • South Korea
  • Serbia
  • Italy

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®. 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 2018 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 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

    First fixed system installed in the world

    Sensor has installed its very first permanent leak location system at hazardous landfill in Slovakia near Bratislava.

    10x10m sensor grid was used and total size of the area was around 10 000m2. The landfill is being monitored 2x per year till this date what proves the concept of methodology and long lifespan of Sensor system.
