Introduction to Vibration-Based Leak Detection Technology

By Aqeel M Bhutta, Project Engineer, Atmos International, Manchester, UK There are various technologies available in the market for pipeline leak detection and loss monitoring. While leak detection system cannot reduce the probability of a leak but using appropriate system for a pipeline can reduce the repercussions of the leak and rupture significantly.  This article offers a basic understanding of vibrations-based leak detection technology, its principle, vibrations induction in pipelines, vibration measurement, and analysis of the data to detect pipeline leaks. It also provides the user with a good familiarity on the components of the leak detection system and computational algorithms u
