Leak Detection for Double Wall Pipe

Leak detection for Double Wall Pipe
The Application
Double wall piping is often used to transport hazardous or environmentally unfriendly liquids from one area of a plant to another. The secondary containment pipe provides a degree of safety if the primary pipe leaks.

The Problem
Some means is required to detect a leak in the primary pipe. Space for mounting a detection sensor is limited.

The Solution
Drexelbrook recommended installation of a collection boot in the secondary containment pipe. We then installed a miniature RF point level sensor. The sensor detects the presence of liquid inside the containment pipe and sends an alarm to the control room.
