Advanced Osmotic Pulse (AOP)
Controlling Water in Structures

The Challange

Concrete and masonry structures contain thousands of capillary formations, and in the same way as plants and trees draw water from the soil, water can penetrate structures through capillary synthesis. Gravity also causes water to seep into porous structures, causing damage and deterioration, and eventually, failure of the structure.

Solving the challenge with AOP

AOP utilises advanced electro-osmotic technology specifically designed to remove moisture from porous underground structures and ensures that the structure remains in a permanently dry state . It uses less power than it would to illuminate a space of equal size and delivers a dry, habitable space; greatly increasing the life of the asset. 

AOP can either be retro-fitted, or alternatively, incorporated into new buildings and structures to prevent the ingress of water and moisture. AOP is ideally suited to drying out basements, subterranean plant rooms and tunnels already suffering from chronic water seepage problems.

How does it work?

AOP is a highly advanced form of electroosmotic technology that utilises a complex and variable multiplicity of pulses to achieve and maintain dryness at desired levels. It is superior to other methods employed by the building industry today where only a short-term, temporary fix is offered. AOP is designed to provide life-long service to match that of the structure without the need for further physical intervention following installation. 

When water is caught within the capillaries of a structure, AOP can be deployed to extract the water; both drying out the structure whilst preventing further moisture penetration. AOP is a proven technology that has been successfully installed all over the world.

AOP is being successfully used all over the world:
  • Walthamstow Central Underground Station, UK
  • Park West, UK
  • Donggang Cable Tunnel, Dalian, China
  • Guildhall, Swansea, UK
  • London Underground, UK 
  • Hong Kong Crematorium, HK
  • Plus hundreds more across the world
