Remote Leak Detection for Onshore Pipe Line

Download (403 KB)

Requirements

ISA 100 WirelessRemote leak detection for pipe line was needed to meet new environmental statute. However cabling earthwork is strictly restricted to protect land environment.

onshore pipe line

Benefits

  • Improved safety by monitoring oil leak.
  • Reduced environmental burden by avoiding land pollution
  • Improved company image to be law abiding.

Challenge

  • Strictly limited earthwork based on regulation.
  • Long distance communication up to 2 km without repeater.

Solution

Introduction of wireless pressure transmitters and temperature trasmitters.

Built large scale star network using high gain antenna based on Yokogawa plant-wide field wireless system.

Equipment List

EJX530B (Wireless Pressure Transmitter) x 33
YTA510 (Wireless Temperature Transmitter) x 17
YFGW710 (Field Wireless Integrated Gateway) x 10
High gain antenna (6 dBi, 9 dBi)
Remote antenna cable (3 m, 13 m)

Conclusion

The company became consistent with new law by monitoring oil leak and reducing environmental burden.

Facilities and personnel safety was improved by monitoring oil leakage.

Risk of land pollution was reduced. The company reputation was improved with enhanced environmental compliance.

The long range communication capability of Yokogawa's plant-wide field wireless system enabled this application.

YFGW710 Field Wireless Integrated Gateway

YFGW710 Field Wireless Integrated Gateway comply to the wireless communications standard ISA100.11a for industrial automation of International Society of Automation (ISA), and relays ISA100 Device data to the system via integrated backbone router. Single unit of YFGW710 has integrated functions of backbone router, system manager, security manage, and gateway.

YTA510 Wireless Temperature Transmitter

The high performance temperature transmitter YTA510 accepts Thermocouple, RTD, ohms or DC mill volt inputs. The transmitters transmit not only process variables but also the setting parameters using wireless signal. The transmitters run on internal batteries, and the installation cost can be decreased since hard-wiring is not required. The communication is based on ISA100.11a protocol specifications.
