ENTELEC Spring Conference & Expo

ENTELEC 88th Annual - Spring Conference & Expo

The team from Atmos International's USA office will be presenting a couple of exciting technologies, Atmos Rupture Detector and the Pipeline Guardian line along with Atmos Trainer.


Atmos Rupture Detector

Rupture Detector is an effective solution that offers a low cost alternative to the high expense of installing automated shutdown valves.

The proposed new PHMSA rule RIN 2137-AF06 may force pipeline operators to choose between the significant expense of installing automated shutdown valves or installing pipeline rupture detection or equivalent technology. Understanding the industry need for reliable rupture detection, Atmos International developed Atmos Rupture Detector to detect every rupture regardless of its location, transient operation or slack along the pipeline with absolutely zero false alarms.

Rupture Detector is far more advanced than a SCADA based rupture system. SCADA based rupture systems are less reliable, less tested and will struggle to detect a rupture that is not close to a station. It takes an extensive database of pipeline data that includes real pipeline ruptures under various conditions and years of experience to develop and test any rupture system. Atmos Rupture Detector has been tested with data from a wide variety of pipeline types, including data from real rupture events.

Pipeline Guardian

Secondary pipelines between facilities that lack instrumentation present another rising challenge for pipelines operators. Our Pipeline Guardian line of hardware and software is designed to overcome these traditional LDS limitations - measurement uncertainties of conventional pipeline instrumentation, lack of instrumentation in the right locations and lack of infrastructure at those locations.

  • Stub pipelines
  • Inter-refinery and terminal pipelines
  • River crossings and other HCAs
  • Any location, no matter how remote.
  • Works with Atmos Rupture Detector.

Atmos Guardian solutions offer any combination of instrument, acquisition unit, communications and power to enable leak detection on any part of any pipeline.
