Author Affiliations +
Most oil product pipelines have a design life from 20 till 25 years. The first attributes of their destruction are leakage of oil products. So it is necessary to test pipelines by means of leak detection systems. But most of main oil product pipelines are locating in the difficulty accessible places: deep forests, marsh lands and so on. One way to simplify delivery of testing systems to pipelines location is to use mobile leak detection systems. In our paper we try to discuss experience of creation of different mobile systems. In the base of each system stands either lidar system, or UHF thermography system, which are developed in the Kazan State Technical University. We present results of designing of four mobile systems. Two systems based on air vehicles. First one--on aerostat `Crimea' (SRI of Aeroelastic Systems) and second one--on programming shuttle airplace (Vizier Engineering, Inc.). Loading weight of this vehicles allow to transportate radiometric devices for UHF thermography. And two systems are based on land car vehicles--KAMAZ-4208 and UAZ-3962. First one-lidar integrated system for methane (IR-cw-LFM He- Ne-DIAL lidar) and liquid oil product detection (pulsed YAG:Nd3+ lidar) with MIC-2000 computer. Second one-- computerized system for UHF thermography with mapping possibilities. Theoretical considerations, system demands and practical results are discussed.
