Tracer Gas Leak Testing

Westech partners with leak detection companies to provide the best leak detection technologies. Westech has used leak detector technology to locate hard to find leaks in tank floors and double wall tanks and vessels. Other uses of the technology may include.

  • Flange tightness
  • Exchanger Tubes
  • Boiler Tubes
  • Fittings

Leak detection and tracer gas detection techniques are very sensitive inspection methods. These methods often require destructive testing to facilitate the injection of tracer gas into the are of interest unless there already exist usable injection points.

Additionally due to the sensitivity of the technique it may require modification or reduction in the safety systems in place, like covering openings such as manways, or clean outs and other nozzles and air moving systems such as fans and blowers also have a detrimental effect on the inspection techniques.
