Since 1995 SDT has been the world leader in underground tank tightness testing. SDT developed the most comprehensive and accurate system for performing underground tank tightness inspections. A method that various accrediting agencies in Belgium, France and the United States have tested and approved. This proven method has been used to perform thousands of inspections world-wide, and over time has enabled us to develop two types of devices dedicated to different kinds of situations. Whether for inspections in Ex-proof environments that require the use of the SDT270 TankTest ATEX, or any other situation with the SDT340 TankTest, we’ve got it all covered.
Fuel Leaking From Domestic Underground Storage Tanks Damage the Environment and Waste Valuable Resources
Over time, the tightness integrity of underground storage tanks or other air tight compartments can deteriorate. Or… they were never air tight to begin with. This is why tightness testing is an essential maintenance task to be carried out on underground storage tanks to prevent leaks that are wasteful and harmful to the environment. Indeed, leaking underground storage tanks result in contamination of the surrounding soil, groundwater and surface water. Not to mention, the loss of resources through the leak.
Underground tank testing with ultrasound simultaneously evaluates the tightness of the tank and the piping without opening the manhole. The SDT device detects leaks in domestic underground fuel storage tanks thanks to the Guided Mode embedded in its firmware, escorting you through the standard procedure step-by-step. Use guided mode to add visual information useful for report creation such as the liquid level, the tank’s diameter, and much more.
