Pipeline Monitoring Solutions

In order to safely manage pipelines in the long term, pipeline operators can monitor both the operational and structural conditions of their assets in near real time using Pure’s monitoring solutions.

Using Pure’s acoustic fiber optic technology, owners of prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) can monitor the structural condition of their pipelines to prevent major pipe failures. The monitoringsystem is able to identify wire wrap breaks, alerting asset managers when there is an unacceptable increase in activity that could lead to pipe failure.

In terms of operational factors, Pure provides pipeline owners with pressure transient monitoring, which contributes to the safe operation of pipelines and can help prevent pipe failures. Pressure transients can adversely affect the structural condition of a pipe; by monitoring for transients, operators are able to reduce the likelihood of large transients that could lead to pipe failure.

Wire Break Monitoring

SoundPrint® AFO (Acoustic Fiber Optic) is a fiber optic monitoring system used to detect and locate wire failures in prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP).

Pressure Transient Monitoring

Engineers and utility operators are increasingly concerned that transient and surge pressures are adversely affecting the condition of their pipelines. The pressure transient monitoring system can accurately record and plot detailed pressure information that can be used to improve current pipeline operation practices.
