EnTech provides subsurface diagnostics that offer a dynamic view of underground hazardous leaks. Our stacking technologies create a comprehensive system that supplies our clients with timely and accurate information enabling them to make informed decisions.
Hazardous Leak Mapping begins with an Infrared Energy Pattern Analysis (IR-EPA) investigation of the suspected anomalous areas. Our IR-EPA systems detect specific energy patterns created by underground leaks caused by pipelines, underground storage tanks (USTs,) and free-phase plumes.
The IR investigation can be complimented with Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) for large aerial surveys. Sub-meter GPS accuracy ensures field crews can easily locate leaks. We can investigate the entire system using this method without disrupting workflow and cut costs because we can target the areas that need to be further investigated.
Each investigation can be explored further utilizing Second Generation Ground Penetrating Microwave Radar (GPR). GPR provides 3-D views of specific areas that require more detail than IR-EPA can offer. Additional information, such as composition, depth and size of underground anomalies can help our clients remediate hazardous leaks.

A large refinery in the Midwest called EnTech for assistance when the EPA ordered all of their sewers to be inspected and, if leaking, fixed. The objective was to identify and locate the leaks without disrupting workflow.
Our Professional Engineers used Infrared Energy Pattern Analysis (IR-EPA) sensing equipment to identify the process sewer leaks, and Second Generation Ground Penetrating Microwave Radar (GPR) to provide 3-D analysis for depth and density of each anomaly. By blending these technologies with expert analysis, we designed an all-inclusive process that enabled our client to quickly fix the leak.
THE PERSONALIZED SOLUTION
Our comprehensive and useful reports were produced in a timely manner, and presented in a format to enable our client to prioritize and schedule repairs to avoid costly emergency shut downs.
Our licensed Professional Engineers helped this client evaluate, maintain, monitor and extend the life of their infrastructure.
EnTech utilized patented and stacked proprietary non-invasive technologies and years of experience to suggest repairs without affecting traffic, system flow and service with a major cost savings when compared to invasive testing and trenching techniques.
