Smart Gasket For Remote Leakage Monitoringadmin2017-08-29T10:30:17+02:00
Smart Gasket For Remote Leakage Monitoring of Gas, Water or Oil
Gas, oil, water and many other gasses and fluids are transported by pipelines. Leakage can occur at places where pipes are connected. Consequences of leakages can be spillage, uncontrolled pollution or causing dangerous situations. 2M Engineering and CST Global develop gaskets that monitor their own wear and remotely alarm when something goes wrong. Variations in pressure are measured and send to a central control point. This way timely repair can take place. Total market potential is estimated at about 30 Billion EURO.
This project was made possible by a contribution from the European Regional Development Fund as part of OP-Zuid.
