MS Python’s Pipeline Monitoring System provides our customers with the tools they need to build smarter structures. Our real-time monitoring services deliver continuous infrastructure analysis, offering complete information about the system’s health. Should an event occur, predefined thresholds within the MS Python System instantly triggers a notification to any members you designate to take appropriate action. With our system in place you will have all information to make an informed decision.
In the pipeline transport industry, where liquids such as gas and oil are transported over long distances, maintaining the structural health is extremely critical. Pipelines often exist within hostile environments. Wind, water, and weather events seek to continuously wear them down. Compound that with the ever-present danger of pipelines as a target from malicious attacks, and it becomes clear why customers come to us for our unique monitoring services.
Structural monitoring significantly improves pipeline management and safety by regularly providing system health parameters. This monitoring can help you prevent the failure, detect the problem and its position in time, and undertake maintenance and repair activities.
Typical parameters that we monitor are strain, curvature, temperature distribution, leakage, and third-party intrusion. To provide comprehensive monitoring services for our customers, MS Python combines two different kind of technology: Distributed Temperature Sensors (DTS) and Acoustic Emission (AE) sensing. Depending on the project we can implement these technologies in conjunction or separately based on need.
Our customers agree, with MS Python’s Pipeline Monitoring Services in place, you’ll have all the information you need to make an informed decision.

Implement advanced monitoring services that are directly integrated with your existing SCADA compatible system.
By providing two different kinds of technologies, MS Python allows us to offer our customers with comprehensive solutions to achieve the objectives of their project. We will work with you to determine the best implementation for your needs.
Acoustic Emission (AE) utilizes wave-sensing technology to alert system operators when material undergoes a change in its internal structure.
An example would be the formation of a crack within an oil pipeline, or plastic deformation due to aging.
MS Python’s monitoring services utilize AE sensing to monitor elastic or stress waves that are generated when an event occurs within or along a material’s surface, and send feedback alerts to key personnel to take action in real-time.
In particular, AE is occurring during the processes of mechanical loading of materials and structures accompanied by structural changes that generate local sources of elastic waves. This results in small surface displacements of a material produced by elastic or stress waves generated when the accumulated elastic energy in a material or on its surface is released rapidly.
With AE you receive acoustic feedback, allowing you to "listen" to the sounds of cracks growing, fibers breaking and many other modes of active damage in stressed materials.
This technology offers our customers a low-cost solution to monitor hundreds of kilometers of pipeline infrastructure, all with high measurability and spatial resolution. Common implementations include:
