The TraceTek Leak Detection and Locating System was developed by the international material science manufacturing company Raychem in the early 1980s. Raychem products are in use in tens of thousands of leak detection applications worldwide.
The company’s sales and field service is backed by offices in 50 countries, manufacturing plants in 14 countries and research and development centres in six countries. The multi-billion-dollar conglomerate Tyco International put its financial muscle and resources behind the company when they merged in 1999. It is now part of the Tyco Thermal Controls division with its UK base at Swindon.
The Raychem legacy is very much in evidence today. In the construction industries it is one of the best known and respected brand names, with a global reputation for reliability. With a sustained commitment – over 2 decades – to leading the world in it’s technological design, and with enormous financial investment, it’s pre-eminence is no surprise.
The R & D torch is now carried by Tyco International and the TraceTek laboratories in California. In the UK, Aquilar actively contributes to their global activities.
Aquilar is the appointed TraceTek Master Distributor for the UK and Ireland. As a complete leak detection provider, Aquilar is developing the Master Distributorship model for Tyco worldwide. Raychem provide the technology for water, chemical, oil and refrigerant leak detection.
- The company has personnel with experience of the industry since its inception, who are actively involved in new product development for the TraceTek Group as part of its commitment to Raychem’s R & D legacy.
- The network of Trained Partner Installers and Field Sales Representatives located across the country provide up-to-date feedback from consulting engineers and customers in all markets, coordinating with customer focus programmes.
The development of the AquiTron™ range of products is a testament to the success of these two initiatives.
