AP SENSING'S GUARDIAN SOLUTION: THE PROTECTION METHOD OF CHOICE!

Ensuring pipeline integrity, immediate leakage detection and risk mitigation

AP Sensing's GUARDIAN solution provides the capabilities to monitor the entire downstream process 24/7. GUARDIAN is an integrated fusion of sensing hardware, detection algorithms plus presentation and interface software. AP Sensing experts work together with you to select the right combination of GUARDIAN technologies to fit your requirements.   

Multiple technologies combine to provide multiple benefits, such as leakage detection, flow assurance and third-party interference (TPI) -- while minimizing false alarms and maximizing detection probability. 

Our GUARDIAN solution detects even pin-hole leaks and delivers alarms quickly, while locating the event to within a few meters of its position. TPI events can be identified and classified in real time to raise an alarm only if the event is a threat to your infrastructure.

By enabling the process control of active heating pipelines flow assurance is maintained, which also optimizes energy usage.

HOW GUARDIAN DELIVERS

AP Sensing's GUARDIAN solution converts a standard optical fiber into a continuous multi-parameter sensor. Based on your project requirements the ideal combination of technologies will be applied:

  • Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS), which identifies thermal anomalies such as the cooling effect of an escaping gas, or to manage an active heating process in a sulfur pipeline, for example.
  • Distributed Acoustic Sensing / Distributed Vibration Sensing (DAS / DVS), which detects energies associated with defined third party activities, whether accidental or deliberate, such as digging close to a pipeline. 
  • Information from various sensors are presented and intelligently combined using our SmartVision™ software suite. More knowledge means  improved analyses.
  •  COMMITMENT
  •  RELIABILITY
  •  QUALITY
  •  EXPERTISE
