Tracer Gas Leak Detection

Tracer Gas Leak Detection is the process of using inert tracer gases (Hydrogen / Nitrogen) to detect water leaks. Tracer gas is also known as leak detection Gas.

Tracer gases can be used to detect many types of leaks including central heating leaks and roof leaks.

The benefits of using tracer gases to in the process of finding a leak includes the ability to pinpoint the location of a leak under the floor, concrete or inside a wall without causing any damage to the surface.

The procedure to identify the location of a water leak using leak detection gas requires the engineer to fill the pipework or void with tracer gases.  Tracer gases are detected using a gas sniffer when rising to the surface from the location of the leak.
