GLD - Gottsberg Leak Detection

Pipeline analysis was the way. Optimised early leak detection the goal.

Methods of pipeline inspection.

Measurement methods that rely on pressure reduction or volume loss are not frequent or sensitive enough to find small leaks. With large leaks, however, they react immediately and lead to shutting down entire systems.

The most sensitive measurement procedures, accomplished in various ways by intelligent pigs (PIGs, Pipeline Inspection Gauges), are very cost-intensive. These costs are caused by large material and personnel expenditures. Also, pipeline operation can be impaired or interrupted for several days.

With this background, the Gottsberg team has pursued a clear goal: Development and manufacture of a highly sensitive but still flexible procedure for early leak recognition.
