Leak Detection Tracer Studies of Underground Tanks and Pipes |
AA has developed field procedures and specialized analytical methods to detect potential leaks in underground tanks and pipes. The tracer is introduced into the contents of the tank or pipe and the soil vapor in the surrounding formation is extracted and tested for the presence of the tracer. If the tracer is found, this signifies a potential leak. The methods used are applicable for detection of the tracer even in heavily contaminated formations.
