We would like to offer our clients even more flexibility and the ability to conduct their own surveys using our SENSOR DDS® MIT Arc Tester. That is why we now have 3 versions of the SENSOR DDS® MIT Arc Tester available for sale in order to make it easier for you to choose the right version for your needs.
The Standard version of our arc tester is suitable for testing exposed non-conductive geomembrane on large scale projects (landfills, water storage ponds, mining leach pads etc.)
This is the extended version of our standard arc tester suitable for projects where the operator must reach heights of up to 6m (for example high water tanks)
With its length of only 65cm this version of our arc tester is suitable for testing geomembranes installed at small garden fish ponds, flat roofs, etc. Its low weight and small size allow the operator to test such areas easily.
Designed to maximise your productivity
High Sensitivity probe long 100cm
High Sensitivity probe short 50cm
Our SENSOR DDS® MIT Arc Tester can be used everywhere waterproofing is required. For example; on geomembranes installed at basins, ponds, tanks, leach pads, storm ponds, landfill cells, green and other flat roofs; landfill caps, tunnels, building foundations, canals and other containment facilities. It is the most technologically advanced QC tool for testing exposed geomembranes. It is capable of testing exposed non-conductive geomembrane and even geomembrane covered with geotextile! In comparison to the common holiday spark testers our Arc Tester can locate a leak in a patch repair.
● Improve the quality of your geomembrane installation
● Provide clients with additional services
●Replaces your old, ineffective and time consuming water based and holiday spark testing method of leak location
● Provides the assurance of a leak-free lining system
● Provides your first step to “Zero Leaks”
● Expand your business
The SENSOR DDS® MIT Arc Tester can be used on any non-conductive geomembrane like HDPE, LLDPE, PVC, bituminous liner and other electrically insulating materials.
A grid, test lanes or other acceptable system should be used to ensure that the entire area including welds are tested with the test probe. The SENSOR DDS® MIT Arc Tester probe attachment can be supplied with different shapes and lengths (as required by client).
Testing must be performed on geomembranes that are generally clean and dry. Small non-conductive debris can be present. There needs to be a sufficiently conductive material below the geomembrane being tested (e.g. sand, gcl, soil, clay etc).
For double lining systems comprised of two layers of geomembrane in order to make any electric method feasible a sufficiently conductive layer such as a conductive geotextile, conductive geocomposite, aluminium foil, sand, or any appropriate conductive material shall be installed under the upper / primary geomembrane. Conductive-backed geomembrane can also be used as the upper / primary geomembrane to enable the method. It is not recommended to use this equipment in wet conditions or during rain / snow fall.
For more information about the method principles please see ASTM D7953-14
Over the past 30 years Sensor has been using this technology all over the world from Africa, USA, Chile, Germany, England, the rest of Europe and the Middle East. Millions of square meters have been successfully tested using the SENSOR DDS® MIT Arc Tester.
This latest version of the SENSOR DDS® MIT Arc Tester comes with new features. This model has been developed to comply with all standards and mainly the ASTM D7953.
