“The benefit of what we’ve shown is not just for leak detection in pipelines....The [DAS] technology has greater benefits for the safety of the human race, long term.” [explains Dr. Peter Hayward of Fotech Solutions]
Hifi Engineering Inc….announced a major intellectual property milestone with their portfolio growing to over 50 patents approved and pending.
Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)...will allow water companies to digitize their pipeline infrastructure and detect and monitor ruptures and leaks in existing pipes. Through the use of DAS technology — which harnesses optical fiber cables installed parallel to the water pipes
Fiber optic sensing technology converts cables installed alongside transport infrastructure, such as railroads or highways, into an array of thousands of sensors which can detect acoustics, temperature or strain signals by using optical sensing techniques.
An AP Sensing Linear Pro Series DTS solution was selected to monitor two reservoir water pipelines in northern Germany. These pipelines are used to dispose of water leftover from oil and gas production, which cannot be discarded above ground due to its natural, slight radioactivity.
