Leak Detection Using Tracer Gas
The term “tracer gas leak testing” describes a group of test methods characterized to detect and measure a tracer gas flowing through a leak. These techniques differ for the tracer gas used and for the realization technology.
Gas Leak Detection Advantages:
This is n nontoxic, non-invasive method. Helps with harder to reach pipes in walls and underground and has a very good detection rate.
Gas Leak Detection Disadvantages:
May require service to be interrupted as the water will have to be shut down during detection.
