Leak detection is very important for safe transportation of hazardous chemicals.
Several types of leak detection technologies are available
Non- Continuous leak detection systems -
Inspection by helicopter
Continuous leak detection -
Two types of continuous leak detection are there
Fiber optic cable
RTTM method (Real time transient model)
What is a soft sensor?
Made up of the words software and sensor
Intelligent softwares uses existing sensor to generate new information
Intelligent soft sensors offer additional information-
Detection of a leak
Localisation of leaks
Product tracking in multi-product applications
Life cycle monitoring
Calculation of pipeline efficiency
Monitoring of vapor pressure and stack line conditions along the pipeline
Over-pressure violation along pipeline.
