Imagine the following two scenarios:
An LNG plant: a leakage in distribution pipe, and the all too important source of energy escapes in the air.
An oil production company: a pipeline leakage, and all the hazardous hydrocarbons flow into the ocean, affecting the marine life.
A leaking pipeline not only results in massive financial losses due to reduced efficiency of a plant and resources being laid to waste; it also poses a behemoth challenge to our ecosystem, especially if the leak is hazardous.
A number of factors contribute to pipeline leakages. The major ones include:
Traditionally, where a distributed network of pipelines was not equipped with regulating and leak detection mechanisms; advances made by control valve and pipe fittings manufacturers have eased these leakage concerns.
Control valves are components that help in the regulation of fluid flow, dependent on the signal received from a controller. These controllers may be electrical, pneumatic or hydraulic in nature.
Yes, control valves provide a range of individual and combined solutions to cope with pipeline leakages; owners need to make sure that these control valves are monitored regularly to keep the system intact. As such regular cleaning and maintenance are required to prevent any damages to these control valves. Moreover, the control valves also need to be calibrated periodically to ensure the maximum working efficiency.
