FiberPatrol® Pipeline

Senstar offers two products for the protection of buried pipelines:

FiberPatrol FP7000 fiber optic pipeline integrity monitoring system

The FiberPatrol FP7000 enhances integrity management programs for both gas and liquid-carrying pipelines by providing early detection of leaks and third-party interference (TPI).

Combining Distributed Differential Temperature Sensing (DDTS) and Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technologies, the FP7000 detects and locates small leaks faster and more accurately than traditional flow and pressure-monitoring solutions, while TPI detection helps to avoid leaks in the first place by detecting digging or tampering before damage can occur.

Features and benefits

How it works

FiberPatrol works by transmitting pulses of laser light into an optical fiber and accurately measuring the minute light reflections that occur along its length. Using a patented technique based on Coherent Optical Time Domain Reflectometry (C-OTDR) principles, the FP7000’s DDTS function can detect temperature rates of change as low as 0.001°C per minute. This extreme sensitivity enables the FP7000 to detect smaller leaks than what is possible with any other leak detection system.

FiberPatrol FP6100X fiber optic TPI detection system for buried pipelines

FiberPatrol FP6100X for pipeline TPI detection is an advanced third-party interference (TPI) detection system specifically designed to protect the integrity of buried pipelines. The system detects a wide variety of TPI types including machine or manual digging, heavy machinery operating nearby, and even people walking in the vicinity of the pipeline.

Features and benefits

How it works

The FiberPatrol FP6100X for pipeline TPI detection uses fiber optic cable buried along the pipeline to detect and locate ground vibrations and acoustic signatures associated with TPI activity. The system’s advanced detection algorithms optimize the detection of TPI activity while rejecting nuisance alarms. It can also reject vibrations caused by traffic on roads and railways running parallel or perpendicular to the pipeline.
