Leak Testing & Building Envelope Testing

  • From small to large scale leak testing / building envelope testing
  • Almost 50 years experience to help advise on your application
  • Capable of creating thick, non-toxic, non-contaminating smoke on demand
  • Full range of smoke machines available to hire
  • Systems used world wide energy studies & air tightness tests
  • Extremely effective way of pinpointing precise location of leaks

Smoke is the perfect medium for discovering where leaks are and how big they are!

Filling a 'leaky' building, ductwork, pipes, aircraft or containment area with smoke and ideally adding a small amount of pressure to the area being tested, will result in a visible discharge of smoke and, simply put, the greater the volume of smoke, the bigger the leak.

After Concept developed a bespoke system for their aircraft testing requirements, a spokesperson for the RAF commented:

"The use of smoke as a means by which to detect cabin pressurisation leaks has been shown to be extremely effective and is unquestionably superior to any alternative detection method used to date!"

For the greatest efficiency you need to use a smoke with the longest possible hang time and the smallest particle size.

The ViCount (recommended for large scale leak testing & building envelope testing) produces a non-toxic, food quality, intrinsically bio-degradable oil based smoke. The resulting smoke barely evaporates, enabling dense smoke concentrations to be achieved and  maintained in massive volumes, that would require up to 10 water based systems to achieve comparable results. 

The smoke can be vented from the premises after a building envelope or leak test, leaving no signs or indication that a test has even been carried out.

Testimonials

Building Envelope Technologies Ltd

"We have been using the ViCount unit now for some time as our main method of generating smoke for air leakage path identification as part of building airtightness tests.

The speed at which the unit builds smoke is very impressive and consistently in line with the guidance given by yourselves.

The nature and density of the smoke produced proves very effective when observed from outside the building giving sufficient time for and allowing easy observation of emerging smoke and leakage paths. The very persistent effect has allowed us to test buildings with volumes up to 40,000 m3 with just two units.

The very dry nature of smoke (i.e. small particle size) has meant that there have been no instances of contamination of the buildings following the test.

We have found the continuing technical support provided by Concept to be prompt and effective in answering queries and allowing us to get the most out of our equipment."
