03:48 Jun-16-2005 Re: Underground Pipe Line Leak Detection Good Day Garfield, As for our experience at FFC pakistan, we have buried underground line of length 46 km, & containg Natural Gas, the line is wrapped with a coating.the line is cathodially protected. we monitor the health of the pipe line by using pearson survey. the prinipal is pretty simple that the line is connected to one end of the battery & on the surface a detection system is used monitor if there is any abnormal lekage of current. as any abnormal leakege detected at any point would mean that the coating is damaged & current is leaking. And this damaged coating means sites for corrosion to take palce.

The water industry uses a version of acoustic emission based on cross correlation, if the line is capable an internal pig with acoustic leak detection. A company in the UK makes an Acoustic Leak Detector called Magic Carpet.

When combined with a water column, this solution can be used to
easy-to-interpret data on elbows with diameters ranging from 4.5

to flat and offers many benefits.
For highly attenuating materials, the performance of the system is critical. The ultrasonic sensors,
the scanning area and the system settings should be flexibly adapted to the test task and the material.
These high expectations are met with the new and modular testing system SONOAIR. With the world’s first air-coupled phased-array UT inspection system SONOAIR we developed a technology that works with up to 4 transmitter and receiver channels with freely configurable square wave burst transmitters as wells as low noise receiving amplifiers.
