GLD - Gottsberg Leak Detection

The future begins with three letters: GLD.

The Gottsberg Leak Detection system.

This system is a new development, based on the proven Sick-Maihak leak detector (MLD). It is based on over 30 years of leak detector knowhow, as well as the knowledge and improvements of the Gottsberg development team.

The innovation? It’s simple in principle: By collection of specific ultrasonic signals and multi-channel spectrographic analysis, even small leaks can be recognized and located. Such small failure points were a particular problem with pipelines laid in soil and water, since interference from other sounds prevented their detection. These problem areas can now be detected and ignored by multispectrographic analysis. Integrity tests required at regular intervals during pipeline operation by official regulations and pipeline operators’ safety rules can now be done properly.

Normal operation of the pipeline can be maintained during examination with the Gottsberg system. Use of the GLD takes place without time- and cost-intensive interruptions in operations. Applicable safety precautions for use in explosive atmospheres are minimized, compared with similar systems. Its operation requires minimal use of personnel.

The GLD equipment system is compatible with its MLD predecessor as far as possible. During development, we made certain that MLD components can be reused and/or adapted via an upgrade. The Gottsberg Leak Detection system consists of the following components:

  • GLD 202 Leak Detector
  • GLD 303 Chassis
  • GLD 406 Battery Charger
  • GLD 700 Analysis Software
  • GLD 500 Marker
  • GLD 600 Pig Detector
