INO Technologies Assessment of Leak Detection Systems for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines

This project will assess the stand-off capabilities of National Optics Institute (INO) developed instruments for the detection of vapors from liquid petroleum pipeline leaks. The prototype sensor on a mobile platform will include one or more of three spectroscopic instruments: 1) a standoff ultraviolet (UV) laser induced fluorescence device, 2) a UV Raman remote sensor, and 3) an open path, active, laser based infrared (IR) Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS) sensor. Remote capability up to 100 yards will be evaluated for several concentrations of vapors from petroleum products (typically transported by pipelines) in a laboratory and in a simulated pipeline setting.
