Leak Prevention

 

Vision

Protect the environment and conserve our customers’ assets by providing smart coatings and linings that prevent leaks and detects failures

Applications

  • Liquid coatings on exterior or interiors of pipe and plate work
  • Rubber linings inside of pipe fittings and plate work
  • Chromium carbide overlay

How our system works

The system monitors the entire surface of a pipe or vessel through an incomplete circuit between two conductive layers in the coating. When a breach in the coating or lining occurs, the circuit is completed and a signal is produced. The signal can be any format required including analogue, digital like PLC, RFID or even through a cathodic protection network

Advantages over existing systems

  • Continuous and comprehensive coverage – the entire surface is monitored 24/7
  • Non invasive
  • Except for mechanical puncture, this system will notify before leaks ever occur
  • Intrinsically safe

Results

In 96% of reported leaks if this system was installed, the failure in the coating or lining would have been reported before the leak had occurred.
