LEAK DETECTION IN PIPELINES IN SERVICE, ORAN (July 2013)
In early summer 2013, Aqualogy carried out a leak detection campaign using the iDROLOC system in the Oran drinking water supply network, managed by Sociéte de l'Eau et de l'Assainissement (SEOR).
The work focussed on two very different areas with equally successful results. The first phase covered the network’s largest and least accessible arteries: 300- to 1,000-mm-diameter pipes running alongside some of Oran’s busiest and noisiest streets. The second phase involved leak detection in a low-pressure zone with PVC/PE pipes of 50 mm in diameter.
The tracer gas system detected a total of 56 leaks in the distribution (approximately 12 km) and transport (7 km) networks.
