Find out how Vanmok Leak Detection helped a major USA pipeline operating company achieve regulatory compliance with the new PHMSA final rule for rupture detection on Short Lines
This case study explores how Vanmok Leak Detection assisted a major USA pipeline operating company in achieving regulatory compliance with the new Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) final rule for rupture detection on Short Lines. The customer sought a leak detection solution that offered high sensitivity and reliability while minimizing costs. Vanmok’s cost-effective LD Cloud solution, which relies solely on pressure data, proved to be an ideal choice. By utilizing Vanmok Gateways connected to pressure transmitters and leveraging cloud-based technology, the system achieved leak detection sensitivity up to 1 m³/hr or 3% of the delivery flow rate. The solution surpassed API-1130 performance metrics, demonstrated reliability during abnormal operating conditions, and required no flowmeters or modifications to existing infrastructure. With fast implementation and scalability, Vanmok’s solution proved to be an efficient and compliant choice for the pipeline operating company.
