Smoke Testing for Quality Assurance

 

Procedure Description

A smoke test is a method of ensuring that a membrane is free of holes. Smoke is pumped under the membrane for a specified period of time while the surface of the membrane is observed for minute holes where the smoke is clearly visible. During the smoke test, any holes detected can immediately be repaired. This process has been completed under hundreds of structures and found to be highly successful. The smoke testing process assures engineers, developers, and owners alike that they are getting a fully tested, gas-tight membrane installation.
