Pipeline Leak Detection System


Suitable applications for our pipeline leak detection system:

Bulk storage applications; oil storage tanks often corrode around the base, leading to leaks, loss of product and soil contamination. Our hydrocarbon leak detection systems continuously monitor for hydrocarbons and non-conductive solvents.

Airports and petrol stations; our hydrocarbon leak detection system allows you to quickly locate and repair any detected fuel/diesel/jet fuel leaks.

Power generator rooms; in mission critical applications such as power generator rooms in data centres etc, the fast detection of small amounts of hydrocarbons, means you will detect the leak, before any damage is done, minimising downtime and cost impacts.

Product Description

Why a Pipeline Leak Detection System?

Oil and fuel leaks can have devastating repercussions for companies in the oil and gas sector, ranging from hazards to personnel, environmental and ecosystem destruction, to company liability. With such risks, it is no wonder regulations are becoming stricter, forcing companies to look for effective pipeline leak detection system in Australia.

Common leak detection technologies are;

  • cable/rope type
  • vacuum
  • simple point systems


The most time/cost efficient way to detect and locate a leak is with cable type monitoring systems. Using Permalert’s PAL-AT liquid leak detection system cable  allows operators or facility staff to locate leaks within 1m of the leaks location. The accurate and fast detection of liquid leaks prevents turning a minor clean up and repair incident into a catastrophic disaster for the asset and/or the environment.

PermAlert’s Cable-type Pipeline Leak Detection System

Semrad has teamed up with PermAlert to bring the FM 7745 Leak Detection approved PAL-AT leak detection systems to Australia. The pipeline leak detection system performs perfectly even in the adverse conditions experienced by pipeline applications, such as underground installations and long distances, . The pipeline leak detection cable uses radar technology to detect leaking liquid hydrocarbons and will enter alarm in under 30 seconds, based on FM7745 hydrocarbon leak detection standard. The leak sensor cable are fully reusable after any size of leak, and can simultaneously detect several leaks over long distances and provide you with accurate location information, giving you the necessary information to make repairs quickly, before costly damages occur.

Compared with traditional leak detection systems, our system offers a unique feature, “Dynamic Leak Evolution Analysis” which allows the operator to monitor the leak in real-time, allowing you to act quickly, and prioritise (if there are multiple leaks detected) repairs according to their magnitude. The system is immune to alarming due to dust and debris build-up on the sensing cable. once a leak is detected the cable just needs to be cleaned and put back into service.
