Efficient and reliable airborne leak detection
of gas pipelines using CHARM®
Since 2018, we have been using a new generation of CHARM measurement systems to check gas pipelines for leaks. The significantly higher measuring rate of the new systems enables us to scan a wider measuring strip. An innovation assistant will be employed as part of the measure funded from 01.04.2019 to 31.03.2020. New evaluation methods will be tested to help improve the detection of methane emissions to reduce the emission of the highly climate-relevant gas methane. We expect the improved methodology to strengthen our market position.
The project is funded by the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Health, Women and Family from the European Social Fund.
