WHITE PAPER: Tackling corrosion under insulation with fiber optic sensing.

Get our free white paper about CUI-CONTROL. Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is a major threat to various industries, particularly those that deal with metal infrastructure and equipment exposed to harsh environments such as oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical, power generation, and many others. Studies have shown that CUI can account for up to 50% of all corrosion-related maintenance costs in these industries.

Fluves attended the workshop on the update of DNV-RP-G109

Fluves attended the workshop on the update of DNV-RP-G109. And we are pleased with the motivation of the asset owners on this topic.

DNV published a recommended practice to manage the CUI threat in December 2019. This practice DNV-RP-G109 Risk-based management of corrosion under insulation was developed as part of a collaborative project with partners from across the oil and gas industry. It provides a novel methodology to guide asset managers on the most effective and efficient way to assess, mitigate and systematically manage the risk of CUI.

Article in Pipeline Technology Journal issue 4

Tackling Corrosion and Leakage by retrofitting pipelines with Fiber Optic Sensors: Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) of insulated pipelines and leakage or intrusion detection on underground utility pipelines are two applications where Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing (DFOS) provides a promising alternative to existing monitoring techniques. In this paper, we present case studies for both domains.

IoT sensors lead to better flood preparedness

In the wake of the catastrophic flood events in Belgium and Germany in July 2021, Trends Magazine spoke with three Flemish companies on how to deal with such disasters in times of a changing climate. Besides prevention, preparedness is critical in dealing with flooding, and the Internet of Things (IoT) application of Fluves to monitor water levels will play a major role in this.

Project manager Sacha Gobeyn and modelling expert Niels De Vleeschouwer envision a future in which every kilometer of river and stream is equipped with an IoT water level sensor. Using these sensors, local issues such as blockages can be detected within minutes, allowing authorities to take rapid action. Such low-cost IoT level sensors are already being installed by Fluves today as part of several pilot and commercial projects.

Fluves digitizes Flemish rivers

Since the start, Fluves is fully dedicated to building a clean water system. Every minute thousands of our sensors track the water status in rivers, pipelines and other flow infrastructure. Only last months, scores of our water quality sensors were installed by the Flemish Environmental Agency to track water salinization.

Every day, 167 million liters of drinking water disappear through leaking water pipes

In 2019, 61 million cubic meters of drinking water were lost in Flanders due to leaking water pipes. Locating these leaks is a crucial step to mitigate the loss. With DALI®, we provide utility managers with the technology to continuously monitor pipelines and detect leaks.
