It is a well-known fact that pressure transients can have adverse effects on the integrity of pipelines. This is painfully evident when a water hammer causes a pipeline to fail.
However, most pressure transients occur without ever being noticed and can cause incremental damage every time a surge occurs. Accumulated damage of this nature can significantly weaken the pipeline.
There are two reasons why pressure should be monitored:
There is a better way to monitor pressure
Conventional pressure monitoring technologies cannot always detect and quantify pressure transients ina reliable way, and they don’t provide a realistic understanding of the true condition in a pipeline.
Our transient pressure monitoring system provides an elegant solution to these challenges. We provide high-quality data on pressure transients without sending endless amounts of data during normal operating conditions. We continuously monitor pressure and report at user-defined intervals. When a transient is detected, the sampling rate is increased by up to 100 samples per second, which provides accurate readings of pressure that can be plotted over the duration of the entire transient event.
With traditional pressure monitoring technologies, the transient on the left would have been missed. However, with our system (right), the transient is recorded and accurately plotted.
