FIBER OPTIC SENSING

High Temperature Monitoring

Overview

We have developed the technology for our fiber optic cables to thrive in extreme temperatures, providing sensing solutions in even the harshest environments. No other sensing technology on the market can measure temperature distribution. Our breakthrough in High Temperature Fiber Optic Sensing (HT-FOS) has set new standards in the industry, offering better solutions for refractory materials beyond 500°C. 

Fiber optic sensors successfully monitor many measurement points in a single optical line to the utmost accuracy and dependability. The advantage to heavy industry is tangible. The industry depends on resilient and reliable equipment to function. 

Temperatures can exceed 500°C in power plants, refractories, and oil refineries. Sensors that perform in extreme temperatures allow for highly accurate and distributed temperature profiles to be mapped out in real-time and saved for further analysis and historical data comparison. 

Our fiber optic cables perform in extreme temperatures, but how we apply the technology is up to you. We have the know-how in almost every discipline, from the production of sensors (FIMT), measurement principles, lab testing equipment, and FO Installations. 

Come to us with your project, and we’ll respond with a bespoke solution that solves your challenge with maximum efficiency and performance. 

Applications

Why Fiber Optics

Optimise process

Key input for changes

Avoiding Damage

Blocking of Pipelines

Controlled maintenance

  • Monitored wear and tear
  • Life cycle management
  • Improved service planning

High-Voltage Cables on power poles or buried underground:

Power grids must operate at the most efficient and reliable level possible. Our solution pushes the limits of efficiency in a power cable’s infrastructure without compromising safety. The cable is protected against external forces, such as the environment and theft, keeping it running uninterrupted at full power, 24/7. 

Technology

We locate the source of a leak by detecting vibrations with Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)fiber optic sensing also measures temperature and gathers accurate and reliable real-time data. We approach every project with a fresh mindset, agile to the challenge ahead of us, and supported by our recent advances in technology. Our breakthrough in providing fiber optic sensing in extreme temperatures shifts the potential of Pipeline Monitoring to a higher standard than ever before, making our solution the most efficient on the market. 

Pipeline Monitoring

One of the most important considerations with Pipeline Monitoring is the detection of leakages. Our fiber optic sensing solutions constantly relay accurate information in real-time, detect any leak immediately, and create efficient and safe environments. 

Downhole Temperature Profiling

Potential applications in Downhole Temperature Profiling include real-time fluid level measurement, multi-zone production pressure, and temperature monitoring. We offer custom solutions to every challenge in fiber optic sensing, getting the most efficient and reliable results in Downhole Temperature Profiling. 

Temperature Monitoring

from 350°C to 650°C

At our R&D Facilities, we develop custom solutions to ensure every project receives the best approach. High temperature always requires innovation due to the particular challenges it brings. Electronic sensors need to be protected by materials that withstand high temperatures without causing other problems, such as decreased weight or flexibility. We support projects in Industry, Machinery, Furnace Monitoring, and Industrial Process Controlling, and each case receives custom research to find the solution it deserves. 

We believe our recent breakthrough has created a higher industry standard. No other sensing technology on the market measures temperature distribution. Conditions beyond 500°C have never had the opportunity to engage with High Temperature Fiber Optic Sensing (HT-FOS) of the efficiency and reliability that we can now offer. From the production of sensors (FIMT), measurement principles, lab testing equipment, and FO Installations, we have the know-how and the agile approach to overcome any challenge.
