How to Avoid Pipeline Failures

How to Avoid Pipeline Failures

Maintaining the safety and reliability of high-pressure fluid pipeline systems is essential because the fluids may be hazardous, explosive, or poisonous and failures can lead to significant economic losses, casualties, and environmental pollution. In this white paper, we detail design practices and new technology tools that can be utilized to prevent pipeline failures.

How to Avoid Pipeline Failures

Leaking pipes lost the equivalent of $7.6 billion worth of treated water in 2019, and pipe failures cause billions of dollars in losses to both households and businesses, in terms of water and wastewater alone. The failure of oil and gas pipelines can result in not only major economic losses but also loss of life and ecological disaster. Common reasons for hydraulic pipeline system failures include corrosion, weathering, traffic load, flow conditions, and aging. 

Included in this white paper:

  • Detailed discussion of hydraulic transients, the main trigger of pipeline failures
  • Methodology for pressure surge protection
  • Surge protection devices and mitigation methods
  • Case studies
  • Key takeaways
  • New technology solutions
