Overview

PipePatrol is a leading edge system for pipeline leak detection and localisation in pipelines. It is the most sensitive internal leak detection system (LDS) available, providing accurate leak information for a high degree of safety. PipePatrol combines the Real Time Transient Model (RTTM) with a patented Leak Pattern Recognition module to create an Extended Real Time Transient Model (E-RTTM). Its multi method leak detection enables pipeline management under both steady and transient pipeline conditions. This way, the LDS is able to reliably distinguish between real leaks and imbalance deviations caused by linefill changes or separation units.

PipePatrol Leak Detection can be retrofitted onto existing pipelines, using existing instrumentation. KROHNE also supplies complete project packages, including flow and other instrumentation, complete with remote data communications.

Product features and options depend on device configuration: Contact us to make sure that your preferred functionality can be combined in one device.
