Pipeline operators can monitor both the operational and structural conditions of their assets in near-real time using Pure’s monitoring solutions.
Pipeline Monitoring Solutions
Using Pure’s acoustic fiber optic technology, owners of prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) can monitor the structural condition of their pipelines to prevent major pipe failures. The monitoring system is able to identify wire wrap breaks, alerting asset managers when there is an unacceptable increase in activity that could lead to pipe failure.
In terms of operational factors, Pure provides pipeline owners with pressure transient monitoring, which contributes to the safe operation of pipelines and can help prevent pipe failures. Pressure transients can adversely affect the structural condition of a pipe; by monitoring for transients, operators are able to reduce the likelihood of large transients that could lead to pipe failure.
In order to safely manage pipelines in the long term, pipeline operators can monitor both the operational and structural conditions of their assets in near real time using Pure’s monitoring solutions.
Featured Case Study
Champlain Water District
Champlain Water District (CWD) is an award-winning regional municipal organization that supplies drinking water to 12 municipal water systems in Vermont. As the largest water supplier in the state, CWD serves approximately 75,000 residential, commercial and industrial users. CWD draws water from Lake Champlain, and three high-value water transmission mains supply water to the user municipalities. When evidence of corrosion-related breaks was revealed in nearby distribution mains, CWD became concerned that a critical metallic water main in their system could be next.
