Pipeline Leak Detection and Localisation
Rapid reaction capabilities in case of pipeline leaks
Whether it be long-distance pipelines for oil and gas, pipelines for transportation of dangerous gases such as CO or cooling lines for critical infrastructures: in any case, leaks can have significant consequences – in terms of profitability and for the environment.
For highly accurate and extremely reliable leak information KROHNE provides PipePatrol Leak Detection solutions. Combining Extended Real Time Transient Modelling (E-RTTM) with a patented leak pattern recognition module, PipePatrol's fast and accurate detection of spontaneous or small creeping leaks. The System can e.g. detect a leak as small as 3mm in a 140 km fuel pipeline in less than 5 minutes and after a product loss of no more than 35 litres. The solution works at steady-state and transient pipeline conditions.
