Sahara® Leak & Gas Pocket Detection

The first tool designed for live inspection of large diameter water mains, the Sahara® Pipeline Inspection System is one of the most accurate tools available for detecting leaks, pockets of trapped gas, and structural defects in complex networks of large diameter water mains.

How it works:

Sahara® pipeline inspections are conducted while the main remains in service by inserting a sensor into any tap 2″ (50 mm) or larger. A small drag chute uses the flow of water to draw the sensor through the pipeline.

Smartball® Oil&Gas a new innovative Technique for leak detection for Oil- and Gas pipelines

smartball-Oil-InsertRegular and accurate leak detection is an important part of integrity programs for Oil and Gas pipelines. Pure’s SmartBall® technology is highly sensitive tool that can identify leaks that aren’t typically found using other systems.

The platform is ideal for complementing existing integrity programs or as a check on non-piggable Pipelines.

For pipelines 4-inch (100 mm) and larger in diameter, SmartBall offers unparalleled leak sensitivity and accurate location capability. It is easy to deploy and can be used to complement existing pipeline integrity programs or as an integrity check on non-piggable lines. The device consists of an instrumented aluminum core in a urethane shell and contains a range of instrumentation, including an acoustic data acquisition system that listens for leaks as the ball travels through the pipeline.

3R 1-2/2011: Leckortung mit intelligenter Kugel

Im bayrischen Naturpark Altmühltal wurde erstmals der SmartBall, ein Gerät zur Detektion von Leckagen und Luftpolstern, in einem Teilabschnitt von 22 km, in einer Trinkwassertransportleitung aus Spannbeton erfolgreich eingesetzt.

Die große Frage: “Werden wir Leckagen finden?”

Über die Durchführung und das Ergebnis unserer Leckortung haben wir Anfang 2011 in der 3R, der Fachzeitschrift für sichere und effiziente Rohrleitungssysteme(Vulkan-Verlag, Essen, Seite 82-83) berichtet.
