Emerson's RuptureSentinel software provides a highly reliable layer of defense that enables liquid pipeline controllers to quickly detect ruptures and limit costly financial and environmental impacts.
The intelligent software uses multiple methods to detect rupture signals; checking for deviations in flow and pressure measurements to ensure a rupture will be detected whether the pipeline operation is using pressure or flow control, and/or is shut-in or slack. Nuisance alarms are also eliminated by the software to keep pipeline controllers from becoming complacent. Every alarm is meaningful and invites a specific response. Compliant with API RP 1167, RuptureSentinel is provided with full Alarm Rationalization and Documentation that integrates immediately into a control room management plan. Available as a standalone solution or integrated with our PipelineManagerTM software, RuptureSentinel is a self-training solution capable of rapidly recognizing the unique characteristics of a pipeline operation, ensuring the software requires minimal time to implement.
