A complete turnkey solution for your leak detection requirements
Data centres, exchanges and switch centres provide a critical service to millions of subscribers. Continuity of service is not only essential to users but also vital to operators who are naturally concerned to protect their buildings from the threat of leaks and the potential damage to revenue and reputation unchecked leaks can cause.
Andel’s Floodline® leak detection systems are chosen as the most reliable and cost-effective option by many of the world’s most prestigious blue-chip organisations.
Data and communications centres are built to the latest design specifications employing cutting-edge features and technologies. Mile upon mile of data network and power cable is installed under raised access floors where it can be organised and routed safely out of sight. The problem is that the same void also contains water service pipes feeding air conditioning units, toilets and kitchens . The unsightly pipes can be hidden from view along with te potential problems they pose.
Our extensive Floodline® product range includes water and oil leak detection cables, sensors and alarms, gas leak sensors that can be calibrated to detect any commercially used gas and temperature and humidity sensors for environmentally sensitive areas – all connecting to a single, state-of-the-art, BMS-compatible, hybrid control panel for continuous environmental monitoring. The system can also automatically isolate water, oil and gas supply in the event of a leak.
Andel’s Floodline® is a zonal system, providing continuous monitoring, that can pinpoint a leak from single to multi-zone and distance measuring systems, with the capability to protect any building, old or new.
Andel provides a complete solution – from consultancy and site survey to equipment selection, system design, supply, installation and after-sales support and maintenance for any size of project for data centres and mission-critical operators anywhere in the UK

Stored Fuel Maintenance
Is your stored diesel fuel ready for an emergency?
If you fail to maintain your stored fuel and storage tanks, it could be a disaster waiting to happen.
A data centre relies on the continuity of its electricity supply. Standby power provided by back-up generators must activate quickly and there must be a sufficient quantity of stored fuel on site to keep back-up generators running to cover for an extended power outage.
Because modern fuel contains lower sulphur content and significantly higher amounts of biodiesel, bacterial and fungal growth are common in stored fuel. Microbial contamination, known as the diesel bug, is a problem that faces every data centre and mission-critical operator storing fuel for generators.
Contaminated fuel supplies can result in at best machinery not operating efficiently and at worst in total breakdown
Failure to regularly inspect your stored fuel and storage tanks can result in emergency, mission-critical equipment failing when you need it most.
A cost-effective solution for data centres across the UK
Andel provides a comprehensive range of oil storage maintenance services including:
- Site surveys and fuel sampling – providing effective, early warning of potential problems
- Fuel and tank maintenance – removal of contaminated fuel, thoroughly cleaning your tanks of contamination, filtering, polishing and stabilizing the fuel by using specialist state-of-the-art remedial equipment, then returning the refreshed fuel to the clean tank.
- Permanent filtration systems – installation of permanent fuel oil polishing systems to your tanks to regularly circulate the fuel and remove contaminants.
