Contamination in gas networks is a global problem, causing corrosion and damage to plant and equipment with high clean-up costs.
As we know, liquid events can significantly increase the uncertainty of fiscal measurements, such as flow and calorific value. Limiting these events and the knowledge gained from monitoring can reduce these errors. Therefore, Gas Safety (Management) Regulations (GS(M)R) require that gas transported in the gas transmission system should not contain liquids or solids.
The new and innovative camera-based system is permanently installed in gas networks, using image processing to alarm as soon as contamination is detected and enables access to a live video stream of pipeline activity. Implementing this technology will allow operators to make proactive, evidence-based decisions. More effective maintenance will be possible, and the threats posed by contamination will be greatly decreased.
Capable of detecting all types of solid and liquid contamination, this solution provides pipeline operators certainty on gas pipeline contamination levels. For more information >>
