When a breach in the coating or lining occurs, the circuit is completed and a signal is produced.
Protect the environment and conserve our customers’ assets by providing smart coatings and linings that prevent leaks and detects failures
The system monitors the entire surface of a pipe or vessel through an incomplete circuit between two conductive layers in the coating. When a breach in the coating or lining occurs, the circuit is completed and a signal is produced. The signal can be any format required including analogue, digital like PLC, RFID or even through a cathodic protection network
In 96% of reported leaks if this system was installed, the failure in the coating or lining would have been reported before the leak had occurred.
