Robot designed to find tiny tears in geomembranes

October 13th, 2020 / By: / Geomembranes, Uncategorized

ELIS Technologies Ltd. has developed a robot equipped with 3D GPS eMapping technology that offers many advantages for finding tiny tears in geomembranes.

The eRover robot verifies the integrity of covered waterproofing geomembranes and fully conforms to the ASTM D7007 standard.

eRover’s technology is based on the tested mobile measurement systems or “dipole method,” where instead of technicians performing these surveys, it automatically detects leaks up to 1 meter below surfaces, including sand, gravel and clay.

Soil is a finite resource. Soil affects the food we consume, the water we drink, the air we breathe, the health and wellbeing of all living species.
Sustainability has become a priority point and an important target for many environmental concerns. Therefore, it is important for our enterprise to speak to the public and our colleagues about how to achieve sustainability—about its purpose, implementation, and practice.

We believe the numbers speak for themselves. The eRover is verifiably up to 12 times faster and more efficient than all standard monitoring methods, including Arc Tester. Leak detection robots significantly shorten monitoring time and find 4 times smaller leaks than other methods. This results in tremendous time and cost reduction, and a path to environmental sustainability for clients.
