Leak Testing at Process Pipelines Using Acoustic Emission Technology

V. G. Kharebov, A. N. Kuzmin, A. V. Zhukov, N. F. Styukhin

New possibilities of acoustic emission (AE) technology for leak testing at underground pipelines are shown by the example of the existing processing pipeline. The methodical peculiarities are considered and it is experimentally shown that there is a possibility in principal upon analyses of AE registered event flow and individual signal parameters to detect an exact location of a pipeline through leakage, define its cause and therefore decide its level of danger for further pipeline operation.
