KROHNE presents the webinar "Rapid and Reliable Pipeline Leak Detection" on April 20, 2016

KROHNE presents the webinar "Rapid and Reliable Pipeline Leak Detection" on April 20, 2016, 10:00 AM EDT (15:00 CET). It focuses on the differences between commonly used leak detection systems and those combining several leak detection methods. Target groups for the free webinar are all industries that operate liquid and gas pipelines such as chemical, petrochemical, and oil & gas.

Pipelines are among the safest and most efficient means of transport available, and leak monitoring systems are a necessary part of their safety concept. While demand for pipeline leak detection and location systems is increasing, general knowledge about these systems is limited, as presenter Daniel Vogt explains: “Negative statements about sensitivity and reliability such as ‘only catastrophic leaks are detected’ or ‘permanent false alarms’ can still be heard regularly. They may result from bad experience in the past, unrealistic expectations, or a combination of the two. Attendees of the webinar will learn that modern leak detection systems do allow leak detection without false alarms, even when operated under dynamic (transient) conditions.”

In particular, KROHNE’s PipePatrol E-RTTM method for rapid and reliable leak detection is presented: the capabilities of this model-supported, statistical classification method in an operational environment will be demonstrated, using field data and a sample case taken from the chemical industry. Also, key factors for successful implementation and operation are shown.
