Leak Detection on Plastic Pipes

 
Price: £25  

Conventional leak detection techniques often prove ineffective in locating leaks accurately due to the poor acoustic properties in polyethylene pipe and issues such as highly attenuated leak signals, wave speed estimates, poor signal to noise ratios and the sensitivity of sensors.
The project included numerous controlled field tests to investigate and assess the effectiveness of current leak detection on plastic pipe by reviewing the most appropriate techniques, optimum leak noise correlation methodology and the effective range of existing techniques and also identifying opportunities to support innovation.
