Andel Ltd was formed in 1992 by a nucleus of experts with years of hands-on experience in the design and development of leak detection systems.
As the recognised market leader, Andel has accumulated a substantial resource of technical expertise and practical know-how. It offers a comprehensive package of "one-stop" customer support - from initial site survey through equipment selection, system design, installation and full service back-up for any size of project.
Leaks can occur in any building and are among the most frequent causes of costly damage, disruption and loss. Modern fit-out methods and the reliance on complex mechanical and electrical systems not only increase the chances of a leak, but can also make the outcome worse. The first indication of a leaking pipe hidden within a floor void may be the failure of the power supply, disruption of the network or the interruption of communications or data. Air conditioning plant, chilled water and heating systems, toilets, kitchens, vending areas, service risers, plant rooms and storage tanks can all present a serious leak hazard. If allowed to continue unchecked, a leak, however small, is like a ticking time bomb. If it can be defused in time, a disaster can be avoided.
Awards recognise our ongoing efforts in the advancement of leak detection products and systems. Specifically - research, innovation, engineering, product design and installation services. In addition to these Andel is proud to have been recognised for its work with disabled people, promoting equal employment opportunities and the environment
Our client and end-user list reads like "Who's Who" and includes many of the worlds biggest "blue chip" companies. We work with most of the UK's best Consulting Engineers. If you would like specific, named references or general details of projects similar to yours please contact us.

A larger number of zones can be used where accuracy is important. Simple, single zones can be used when only a general alarm is required.
Where possible, e.g. the computer room, detection cable can be targeted at specific items such as the A/C units and supply pipes. In other areas regular patterns of detection cable will give general coverage.
The Floodline One-Zone water leak detection control panel offers a low cost, stand-alone system where a small amount of detection is required. One or more Floodline sensors can be connected.
Output relays are provided for connection to remote alarm, BMS etc. LEDs provide clear and easy to understand status and alarm information.
The FLOODLINE™ Multi-Zone Control Panel operates the network of leak detection zones. A zone can be a single point or many metres long and the whole network is continuously monitored for leaks and continuity. Zones are electrically isolated from each other and individually displayed so the system can accept and report any number of simultaneous or consecutive zone alarms - true multiple leak reporting - an alarm in one zone has no affect on the normal monitoring of its neighbours or the rest of the system.
The FLOODLINE™ 128 Multi-Zone System operates a network of leak detection cables and sensors up to a total of 128 zones. A zone can be a single point or many metres of detection cable and the whole network is continuously monitored for leaks and continuity. Zones are electrically isolated from each other and individually displayed so the system can accept and report any number of simultaneous or consecutive zone alarms. An alarm in one zone has no effect on the normal monitoring of its neighbours or the rest of the system.
The FLOODLINE™ Leak 1 MkII is a self-contained single zone leak detection module specially designed for incorporation into other control/alarm systems, air conditioning units and BMS etc. The module can be used with all FLOODLINE™ sensors.
The compact module is din-rail mounted and screw terminals provide connections for the leak sensors, power input and volt-free contact output.
The Floodline Groundhog Mk II is a self-contained, single-zone leak detection system which can be mounted vertically or horizontally. It can be connected to any control/building management system that has the facility to accept volt-free contacts.
Additional Floodline Point Sensors or Leak Detection Tape can be slaved off the Groundhog.
The BREEAM® (BRE Environmental Assessment Method for Buildings Around the World) assessment process was created in 1990 with the first two versions covering offices and homes. Versions are updated regularly in line with UK Building Regulations and different building versions have been created since its launch to assess various building types.
The Floodline breeameter® system offers flow monitoring and water leak detection in line with the defined standards “W02” and “W03” and can aid in the accumulation of credits subject to a successful audit by an authorised assessor.
Using GSM technology, this monitoring solution based on cloud services can give warnings of potential thefts and leaks of your stored water. An ultrasonic sensor is installed on the tank and this pairs with a GSM modem to relay back to our online service the levels of water in the tank.
The sensor is capable of also monitoring oil, fuel, grain and indeed most products that aren't high risk or volatile.
A highly robust, webbing-type of construction with conductors weaved through its length, the FLOODLINE™ Single-Zone Leak Detection Tape is simple to install and can be wetted and dried a number of times.
Multi-4 - 4 Zone Detection Cable has been used for over ten years in areas where maximum leak detection sensitivity is essential.
Although superceded by Andel's more modern Multi-8 all-polymer detection cables for general usage, the highly absorbent Multi-4 cable is the best option where sensitvity to the smallest amount of water or condensation is required.
The original, multi-8 "multi-zone" leak detection cable has a unique construction which allows up to 8 separately reporting leak protection/detection zones to be serviced from a single length of cable.
This has now been superseded by a newer version which meets and exceeds several more safety tests.
Our revised and improved version of the 8 zone leak detection cable now includes several additional qualities including fire, electrical and smoke tests complying with current recognised standards. This is in addition to the original concept of providing 8 leak detection zones per length of cable.
A tough, compact sensor housed in a steel guard plate ideal for areas where conductive liquids are liable to pool. Available in horizontal format for mounting on flat surfaces or vertically against a wall this is an ideal sensor for industrial applications.
A variation on the point sensor, the oil sensor mounts horizontally or vertically for early detection of oil.
Available as standard in a flexible plastic sheet format with carbon detection tracks, the flexi-pad has found a niche market with several data centres. We have also manufactured bespoke versions to meet the exacting needs of our clients.
Developed in conjunction with Ultima, this optional add-on for the Andel Floodline 128 leak detection system converts the proprietary RS485 data from the comms card into industry standard ModBus signalling for onwards communication to BMS etc.
The Andel-PPL BundGuard has since 1992 become the choice bund dewatering solution for operators who care about their site and the environment. Manufactured from stainless steel, easily maintained and installed it stands to reason why our customers return to us time and time again for more units and to even keep 20-year-old devices running.
Andel’s IWS division provides a range of materials and services within the field of environmental protection. Our product range includes specialist drainage products and alarm systems to guard against incidents of pollution. We also have the expertise to design and fabricate bespoke engineered products to individual client specifications.
