Pipeline Monitoring and Industrial Process Security
Bandweaver has worked together with customers and partners for more than 10 years to develop security, process efficiency and asset integrity solutions for the petrochemical and industrial process industry.
Whether it is a long-distance remote pipeline monitoring with limited security, an inner city pipe at risk of accidental damage from 3rd party interference or a process facility with pipeline condition monitoring requirements, Bandweaver’s unique and versatile range of systems can provide you with a solution.
Application areas include
- Pipeline leak detection systems for liquid and gas pipelines
- Third party interference detection (intentional sabotage or unintentional digging, drilling in vicinity)
- Perimeter intrusion detection system
- PIG Tracking – Pipeline Inspection Gauge Tracking
- Pipeline Condition monitoring of pipe and valves
- Seismic and landfall detection
- LNG terminal and pipeline security and integrity
- Vessel integrity (leak detection , skin monitoring)
Features and Benefits
|DAS monitoring for third party intervention (TPI) detection before the vent occurs, whether it is malicious (terroist, product theft) or accidental (3rd party digging)||Prevention of product theft, improved safety, lower maintenance and repair costs|
|Precise, real-time and actionable information at all points on the pipeline||Rapid and focused decision making which improves custodianship over pipeline thus reducing risk to reputational damage|
|Proactive, risk based maintenance based on accurate measure real-time information||Optimization of planned maintenance program and reduction in unscheduled downtime|
|Smart condition monitoring leads to effective prediction and prevention of equipment failure||Reduced downtime leading to improved return on investment and delayed capital spending|
|Lead detection using both distributed acoustic (DAS) and distributed temperature sensors(DTS)||Early detection of leaks can prevent environmental damage, avoid fines and risk to reputation|
|Utilize existing telecoms infrastructure along pipelines – working closely with telecoms/SCADA installer||Ease of installation, lowering overall cost of ownership|
