Smart Gas Transmission Pipe Using Fiber Optic Sensing Technology

Fiber optic sensing technology, referred to as "Smart Sensor Technology" is available for above ground and buried pipelines, with sensitivity and performance appropriate for each type or combined above and below ground installations.

The modular hardware and software developed by Hawk Measurement Systems is unique in the world and has world leading specifications and software development for false positive minimization and maximum flexibility for specific in-situ customer needs.

The Smart Sensor Technology monitors:
  • Sound / Vibration
  • Temperature / Vibration
  • Temperature Only
  • Strain Only
  • Temperature / Vibration / Strain / Sound
The distributed sensor can continuously monitor vibration, strain and temperature on structural elements of the pipeline for the entire length of optical fiber.
