Dri-Sump® Containment Tightness Testing is a vacuum test method specifically designed to test all types of secondary containment sumps and spill buckets, both double-wall and single-wall. The test uses no water and creates zero waste.
Dri-Sump uses an Aerosol Elixir™, a heavy vapor aerosol, instead of water to test all sumps and spill buckets.
The test method requires filling the entire containment sump with heavy vapor aerosol made from a proprietary formula of food grade, safe chemicals. Once the heavy vapor aerosol is introduced into the sump an air generator creates a vacuum to “pull” any gas that leaks from the sump into a viewing chamber. Due to its accelerated testing time, Dri-Sump prevents facility shut-downs during testing.
Currently approved in 48 states, the Dri-Sump test method can find leaks in sump walls and bottoms, penetration points, interstitial areas, electrical conduits and sump seams.
If your site is not currently equipped to use Dri-Sump testing, Tanknology can make most sites compatible in only a few hours.
Using factory-approved materials and recommended construction practices, our trained and experienced technicians can add testing ports to sumps on almost any site. And with very little lag time, Tanknology can then Dri-Sump test the facility on the day of installation. The process is quick, clean and easy.
