Pipeline Break Detection
Reliable detection of pipeline ruptures in high consequence areas
Pipeline rupture in high consequence areas (HCA) is of particular environmental concern. Minimising the environmental impact of line breaks on water resources and other ecological areas requires an immediate emergency pipeline shutdown.
The PipePatrol Line Break Detection system enables fast-acting response in the event of a pipeline rupture. Consisting of a local PLC with rupture pattern recognition, plus pressure transmitters for pressure drop measurement, the KROHNE system instantly raises an alarm and triggers an automatic emergency shut down by ESD valves.
