BS NiCr resistance location method
Pipelines laid directly in the ground in local and district heating networks and in remote cooling systems are a potential source of hazards: They may be subject to production faults, may be subject to wear from expansion movements, may become damaged when being laid and when civil engineering work is carried out. And the result is always the same: They may leak.
In order to detect damage early and avoid expensive repairs, pipelines should be monitored for leaks both constantly and automatically.
The resistance locating method which Brandes specifically developed for plastic jacket pipes with its NiCr system technology is used to prevent damage: It detects moisture in the pipe insulation with unrivalled promptness, locates it with pin-point accuracy and automatically signal it to the central monitoring unit.
At Brandes we have always set the technological standards in the sector. IntCon is a recent example of just this. It stands for integrity and consistency of measuring results - an unerring instrument for testing system safety and reliability.
Different grades of solutions, tailored to the specific network size and monitoring requirement, are available for monitoring heating and cooling networks.
