Sensor’s founders invented electronic geomembrane leak detection and location monitoring systems, and installed the worlds first permanent leak monitoring system in the late 1980’s on a hazardous waste storage site. That first installation is still operational today confirming continued integrity of the installed geomembrane and protecting the environment from leaks of hazardous waste.

Sensor’s technology has been successfully deployed at more than 2200 projects protecting over two hundred and eighty million square feet of geomembrane liners .

Sensor has offices in 12 countries

In 2020 Sensor introduced its 6th generation of exposed liner testing – SENSOR DDS® MIT – Arc Tester, which our most process and energy efficient models yet. An better its a completely waterless system!

All leak location systems are designed and manufactured at Sensor in according to quality standards ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. The components of SENSOR DDS® permanent systems are backed with BAM certification, which guarantees a minimum lifespan of 30 years for all buried elements (e.g. sensors and cables).

Sensor’s electronic leak location and detection technology has been successfully deployed to monitor and protect in excess of two hundred and eighty million square feet of geomembrane liners, across a diverse range of structures in a variety of differing industrial sectors:

  • Waste: Anaerobic Digesters, Landfill Base / Capping, Leachate Lagoons and Landfill Remediation.
  • Mining: Leach Pads, Storm Ponds, Tailings Ponds and Process Ponds.
  • Clean Water: Potable Water Storage Tanks, Lakes and Dams.
  • Dirty Water: Sewerage Treatment, Evaporation Ponds, Thickeners and Digesters.
  • Roofs: Green Roofs, Brown Roofs, Secure Roofs and Data Centre Roofs.
  • Secondary Containment: Bund Lining Integrity, Spill Protection Liners.

Sensor has established itself as a centre of excellence for electronic geomembrane leak detection. Sensor UK provides specialist services, including monitoring of the integrity and security of geomembrane liners across the English speaking world, the Commonwealth of Nations and the Middle East.

Improvement cycle
The Sensor DDS improvement cycle

Sensor gathers live data in the field from all of its applications. As well as providing an enormous amount of data to its clients, it also serves to assist in the continual improvement processes of the technology itself.

In addition to the more usual product surveillance Sensor also undertakes data monitoring of the causes, position, timing and types of damage that occur.

Understanding the very nature of geomembranes and the causes of damage to them, helps us target our products and processes to ensure the most cost effective method and timing for damage capture.

Our improvement processes are underpinned by 3rd party certification, which ensures the most robust and durable solution in some of the most challenging environments on earth.
