Leak Detection Technology

State of the art scalable technology to monitor the pipelines for leaks and ruptures. Complies with PHMSA rule for rupture detection -10% leak rate detected within 15 minutes.

Let our Industry expert’s show how our cost-effective rupture detection solution can help you meet the new PHMSA regulatory requirements.

Case Study​


Vanmok Leak Detection played a crucial role in helping a major USA pipeline operating company achieve regulatory compliance with the new PHMSA final rule for rupture detection on Short Lines.

Regulatory Requirement

The PHMSA introduced a final rule (49 CFR 192 49 CFR 195) effective from October 5, 2022, emphasizing leak detection for Type A gas gathering, gas transmission, and hazardous liquid pipelines. The rule includes specific criteria for defining a rupture and mandates effective leak detection systems, among other requirements.

The Challenge

Gathering pipelines connecting terminals and processing facilities often lack proper instrumentation like SCADA and flow meters. Real-Time Transient Model (RTTM) based leak detection can be costly due to the need for flow meters and pressure transmitters. Gathering pipelines pose challenges such as bi-directional flow, multiple batches, thermals, low operating pressure, and static operating conditions.

The Solution

Vanmok’s LD Cloud offers a cost-effective and autonomous solution for leak detection on Short Lines, relying solely on pressure data. The Vanmok LD Cloud can detect leaks under dynamic conditions, from pinholes to ruptures, with a high sampling rate of 50-100 milliseconds. Vanmok Gateways connected to pressure transmitters send data via cellular modems to Vanmok LD Cloud for analysis. The system sends automatic alarms in case of a leak, without requiring extensive IT infrastructure.

Technology Overview

Vanmok LD Cloud utilizes pressure data and operates effectively under all conditions, including process upsets like unsteady transient conditions, shut-in, start-up, and shut down of pipelines. The technology achieves targeted sensitivity, avoiding false alarms as per API 1130 performance metrics for leak detection.


Vanmok’s innovative LD Cloud solution provides a reliable and cost-effective means for pipeline companies to meet regulatory compliance for rupture detection on Short Lines.
