HAWK Fibre Optic System (FOS) Pipeline Leak Detection

New pipeline leak detection via infield fiber optic cable.


A new Fibre Optic-based Pipeline Leak Detection System informs of a leak occurrence and also provides accurate location of any potential leakage.

Multivariable single Fibre Optic System sensing detects change in stress / strain due to pipe bending or loss of support. It notes temperature changes caused by liquid or gas movement in pipe leaks. There is also sound and vibration detection from pipe leaks or third-party intrusions.

Systems combine multiple measured variables within one cable, such as sound, temperature, and vibration - to automatically cross reference and remove false signals.

The FOS-based solution seamlessly integrates into an existing digital control system or SCADA to alert operators through a variety of digital protocols.
