Landfill capping design system for non-hazardous and hazardous landfills should prevent the intrusion of precipitation into the waste or the release of landfill gases from the waste.
SENSOR DDS® FIXED systems are suitable for such application and allow the client to monitor the integrity of the sealing layer (geomembrane) for more than 30 years (quaranteed by BAM certification of SENSOR DDS® technology)
LANDFILL CAPPING PROJECT IN GERMANY – SENSOR DDS FIXED INSTALLATION

The sensors are tested on site prior to installation
Every single sensor is connected to monitoring box via cable
Sensors are installed directly to clay layer or subsoil
5x5m sensor grid was applied on landfill capping

After liner installation we controleded whole surface using SENSOR DDS MIT before other layers were layed down
Landfill capping prevents contamination to spread into the environment
Re-cultivated landfill which is regularly monitored for leaks for the environment risk free
The first system was installed 28 years ago and is still fully operational today. Since that first system, Sensor has continued to design and develop more technologies, whilst also augmenting and improving other existing leak detection approaches. These systems are marketed under the SENSOR DDS® brand.
