GLD - Gottsberg Leak Detection

Control is good. Controlled safety is better.

Early leak detection in pipelines.

Pipelines have the same job in a national economy as arteries in an organism. They transport important raw materials. As in the organism, any interruption and/or disturbance can have unfavorable effects on the whole system. So the safe, reliable transport of media in pipelines is an absolute must. Interruptions must be avoided.

In pipelines which are mostly underground or offshore, these can lead to substantial complications. One of the most serious problems is leaks. These can have different causes, such as irregularities in a welded seam, corrosion, or a material defect. Holes and tears can expand to large leaks, and even lead to a burst pipeline. The consequences are not only loss of product and expensive failures, but also very costly environmental pollution. So, early leak detection is of the greatest importance.
