The PermaNet+ Trunk Main system from FCS combines high performance Hydrophone sensor and versatile telemetry data technology to create a continuous monitoring system for sensitive pipelines.
Once installed, leak data, calculated using the proven Permalog algorithm, and secondary data is transmitted via low cost GPRS/3G telemetry. This removes the requirement for expensive site visits and “drive-by” data retrieval.
PermaNet+ TM continuously monitors noise and will auto alarm when profile or threshold alarm levels are reached. The system works in conjunction with Google Maps technology to provide a live on-screen tracking; allowing leakage teams to respond quickly to problem areas and bring them under control efficiently
Once the presence of a leak has been identified secondary measures can be used to check and remove ‘false positives’ and localize the leak position.
Correlation – Audio files are used to correlate remotely to validate that a leak is present.
Aqualog – remotely retrieving the Aqualog detailed noise graphic, clearly indicates the consistent presence of a leak.
Audio – For operators who prefer to ‘hear’ their leaks audio files are transferred to the host.
