Bandweaver will be attending next year’s Intersec exhibition– the world’s leading trade fair for Security, Safety & Fire Protection.
Gas pipeline leakage is a worldwide issue, costing up to $30 billion dollars of lost revenue and about 3% of global natural gas production each year. The implications of this are also environmental, with the methane released as a result of these leaks continuing to contribute to the worlds growing global warming problem. Whilst the most common cause for gas leakage is old and corroding pipeline, the most significant leaks are the result of third-party interference to the pipeline.
DAS Horizon fiber optic sensing technology provides cost-effective solution to the problem of intrusions and disruption to overhead power lines.
Linear Heat Detection ensures cement plant maintains production and avoids losses associated with downtime.
Reliable conveyor belt fire protection and security within fuel storage areas is crucial, which is why LafargeHolcim chose Bandweaver’s FireLaser linear heat detection solution for their cement plant in Jerez, Spain.
From its humble beginnings in 2002, when founder Howell Zhao decided to set up Bandweaver, there has always been a clear vision for Bandweaver. With his extensive background in fiber optic technology and his international experience with companies such as Corning, Howell always intended for Bandweaver to be a global, vertically integrated technology company with fiber optic technology at its heart.
Bandweaver has recently completed the installation and commissioned its latest global test and demonstration facility just outside London, England. This reinforces Bandweaver as a global operator within the fiber optic monitoring sector with test and demonstration facilities across four continents.
Real Time Thermal Rating (RTTR) systems and distributed temperature sensing (DTS) technologies have been used within power cable condition monitoring to rate cables since the 1990’s. The benefits of incorporating DTS and RTTR into power transmission operations were recognised following a well documented power cable failure in Auckland in 1998 which shut down the city’s central business district.
Bandweaver Technology Limited has donated funds to help Malorees community school as part of their Summer of Sport campaign. In addition Managing Director Richard Kluth is participating in the triathlon at Blenheim Palace which is one of the organised events.
Fiber Optic Sensing Solutions
Distributed Acoustic Sensing and Distributed Temperature Sensing are fiber optic sensing solutions which measure temperature along the fiber either utilizing a technique called Coherent Optical Time Domain Reflectometry (COTDR) or Optical Time Domain Reflectometry (OTDR), turning the entire length of a fiber optic cable into a sensor.
