Project Description

Pipeline Monitoring

Monitoring of pipeline systems with FTIR-remote sensing combines real-time leak detection with high spatial resolution and ultra-low false positive alarm rates.

Fast monitoring of large pipeline systems with high spatial resolution and high reliability supports emergency management. Combined approach of passive and active fence-line monitoring covers a broad range of chemicals. Compound identification based on real-time chemical analysis guarantees ultra-low false positive alarm rates and cross sensitivity. Remote sensing means covering large sections of pipelines with very few instruments and is thus a cost-effective way of pipeline monitoring.
