Leak localization and assessment

Steam, compressed air and industrial gases are some of the most expensive utilities in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. Large amounts of these utilities may be lost through leaks, which could potentially have huge impacts on costs, operational safety and the environment. Infraserv Höchst can localize and assess gas leaks using state-of-the-art ultrasound detection technology. Early detection can prevent potential legal, economic or environmental consequences of gas leaks.

Our technology enables us to localize and assess gas leaks from several meters away without coming into contact with the gas or maneuvering into inaccessible locations. Customers can then identify and carry out necessary repairs based on our localization report.

Our services include:

  • Localization: Detecting gas leaks during regular operations by scanning your gas systems using ultrasound technology with the Distran Ultra Pro detection camera
  • Verification: Verifying leaks with simple tests such as using foaming agents
  • Assessment and quantification: Assessing and quantifying leak losses
  • Documentation: Documenting the localized leaks with images, loss estimates and leak descriptions in a complete report
