Pressure Sensors for Natural Gas Pipeline Monitoring

Date: 2022-Jun-15

Natural gas, as a clean energy source, finds extensive applications in industrial production, thermal power generation, and residential gas heating. However, natural gas resources are not available everywhere, and most countries need to rely on imported natural gas for production and living.

It takes a long process from natural gas extraction to transportation to users. There are many ways to transport natural gas, but pipeline transportation has become the first choice due to its multiple advantages such as low cost, easy maintenance, low loss, etc. Although pipeline transportation has many advantages, it also has risks such as leakage and failure, which can lead to interruption or leakage of transportation, resulting in significant economic losses and further safety risks. Therefore, various countries have successively put forward the concept of digitization of natural gas network. Through a non-interconnected natural gas distribution network (via antennas), sensors and data acquisition equipment are employed to monitor and prevent gas leakage and failure, as well as to monitor distributed gas quality, consumption balance, and other potential risk factors.

In the entire gas pipeline monitoring system, the pressure detection is to ensure the efficiency of the distribution parameters of the low-pressure gas network and ensure the correct operating pressure, thereby preventing gas interruption.

In view of the above characteristics, Micro Sensor provides pressure sensors and temperature sensors with high accuracy, excellent stability, low power consumption, easily connect and custom-design available, providing reliable pressure and temperature monitoring of gas pipeline.
