Detect leaks faster and with confidence
Eliminate the guesswork that compromises safe and reliable pipeline management by detecting and locating leaks accurately and in real time, regardless of fluctuating pipeline conditions with the OptaSense leak detection application.
Instead of relying on computational assumptions, the OptaSense leak detection application uses multimode leak detector to identify the physical characteristics of a leak, such as changes in temperature, pressure, ground strain and acoustics, in real time. This patented multimode detector delivers increased sensitivity and reliability so you can identify leaks faster, in order to eradicate minor issues before they become major incidents. In fact, our fiber-based system can detect small leaks 10 times faster than internal systems—allowing you to detect a 0.1% leak size within a matter of minutes.
With the OptaSense leak detection application, the fiber-optic cable acts a fully distributed sensor that offers thousands of detection points along the entire pipeline, capable of pinpointing the location of a leak within 10m, in real time.
To minimize the costly impact of an unreliable system, the OptaSense leak detection application validates leaks before sounding an alarm. Using a patented multimode leak detector, our system confirms suspected leaks by measuring changes in noise, temperature, pressure, and ground strain, simultaneously and in real time. Multimode detector settings can be customized across every 10m section, adjusting to the environment and operating states at various locations.
The OptaSense leak detection application eliminates these issues by performing reliably under transient, slack-line, and multi-phase flow conditions. Even when critical pipeline infrastructure goes offline, this fiber-based system ensures continuous and reliable real-time event detection, classification and location.
