Because water is seen as less hazardous than oil or chemicals it is often overlooked when it comes to leak detection. However, as water becomes more costly and precious in certain areas of the world, more and more water companies are investing in water pipeline leak detection technology.

Recent years have shown instances of water pipeline bursting due to high pressure and corrosion leading to flooding of people’s homes and buildings and causing disruption to roads and cars.

Although leaks and spills may not be as high profile as those of other pipelines, there’s still a cost to pay for water ‘lost’ before it reaches consumers. These losses can occur at connection points, overflow storage tanks or simply inaccurate metering and calculation mistakes. 

These losses are often not very easy to find, therefor accurate and reliable leak detection systems are hugely beneficial to reduce water loss.

  • Leak detection

    A leak in a water pipeline can be costly, especially with the cost of having to pay for ’lost’ water’ before it reaches consumers. However, these losses are often difficult to find, therefor accurate and reliable leak detection systems are hugely beneficial to reduce water loss.

  • Is your pipeline multi-phase?

    Due to the combined mixtures, multi-phase pipelines are more likely to have a reaction and cause corrosion which can lead to pipeline ruptures and leaks. Leaving undetected can have a detrimental impact. In addition, these pipelines need to be monitored through simulation services for changes in behaviour for supply and demand.

    Is your pipeline multi-phase?

    Atmos has software installations on a number of multi-phase pipelines transporting fluid combinations.
