You may be thinking that there cannot be anything in common with these three places, but in fact, PTI has been in all three places installing RLE leak detection technology.
Leak detection technology works by placing a small braided cord in areas where you want to detect liquids. That cord communicates or connects back to an RLE monitoring appliance and when any liquid touches the cord, the appliance will alarm and tell you exactly where the leak is located so you can remedy the situation immediately. The monitoring device can be set up to send alerts to you via text and email, so you still can respond quickly even if you’re not on site.
Let’s walk through each application in a bit more detail.
Leak Detection Technolog Uses
Although we can’t tell you who the celebrity was – just know they were an A-lister. Our service tech, Keller went to a home build site with instructions to install leak detection in a specific portion of the site. The customer wanted the leak detection to help protect art and valuables within the house to ensure no damage was caused by water. We installed the system and have never heard of any problems or concerns.
When you think of an art museum, you think of expensive and rare paintings, statues, artifacts, and more. With the rarity, age, and value of these items an art museum is an ideal place for leak detection technology! We worked with a museum to install leak detection along all of the piping throughout the museum. They wanted to ensure that if a leak did occur, it would be stopped immediately.
Industrial Manufacturing Plant
This application may be the most common for leak detection technology as plants need to ensure that water or chemicals don’t contaminate certain areas. We’ve installed water and chemical leak detection in all kinds of facilities ranging from water treatment plants to food production facilities. Water and chemical leak protection can detect a variety of liquids.
- Fresh deionized water
- Tap water
- Sulfuric acid (98%)
- Sulfuric acid (50%)
- Hydrochloric acid (37%)
- Sodium hydroxide (10%)
- Aqua regia
- Ethylene glycol (60% in DI water)
Whatever the application, we’re here to be your leak detection technology partner. From design to installation, we’ll get you a system that ensures future leaks will be a minor problem, not a catastrophe.
