Leak Detection in Transport Networks

The Sahara system precisely locates leaks in large diameter pipes (>350mm.) of any material without interrupting the service.

The technology involves the insertion of a probe with a sensor into the pipe. As the probe travels through the pipe, pulled along by the flow of water, it detects and locates existing leaks with a high level of precision.

The system offers a high level of reliability, with a locating error of less than 0.5 m and is able to withstand a wide range of pressures (0.2 to 16 bar).
