An Overview Of Pipeline Leak Detection Technologies

Author: Jonathan FiedlerDownload File

This paper will provide you with a fundamental understanding of the operating principles of currently available pipeline leak detection technologies. To start with we’ll have a look at the topics to be covered:
 Historical development of pipelines
 Why they are monitored for leaks
 The requirements and regulations placed on leak
detection systems
 V arious causes of leaks
 Different leak detection methods
It will also be shown how pipelines are monitored utilizing leak detection systems which are operated:
 non-continuously
 continuously with external measurements
 continuously with internal measurements
