PIPE SLEEVE

Cipher Skin Pipe Sleeve

Cost-effective and easy to deploy, Cipher Skin’s pipe sleeve continuously measures all forces that act along the full extent of the pipeline – so that you can detect, locate, classify and predict any threats before they happen.

Deployed around the pipe, Cipher Skin’s sensor mesh detects stress, strain, distortion and vibration. With easily integrated sub-sensors, it can track acoustics, temperature, moisture or light.

It creates a continuously updated, comprehensive picture of what external and internal forces are doing to the monitored pipeline.

The Problem

AN OIL SPILL A DAY

There are hundreds of reportable pipeline breaches every year, costing hundreds of millions of dollars.

Current Solutions

TODAY: VARIOUS MONITORS
EACH WITH THEIR WEAKNESSES

Current pipeline monitoring solutions rely on either in-pipe flow-based sensors that may overlook smaller leaks, or on visual inspection using visible light and other wavelengths.

External monitoring solutions suffer from one or more of these weaknesses:

  • Expensive to deploy and operate
  • Give snapshot data, not a holistic picture
  • Are used episodically, not continuously
  • Limited ability to predict future failure

CIPHER SKIN TECHNOLOGY

GROUNDBREAKING MONITORING SOLUTION

Multi-Layer Wrap Construction
Cipher Skin has three layers: a flexible backing that is adhered to the outer wall of the pipeline, the printed Cipher Mesh layer, and a protective sheath to prevent degradation or damage.

Multiple, Simultaneous Measurements and Real-Time Alerting
Cipher Skin’s mesh and its embedded sensors measure changes on the outer wall of the pipeline as well as its contents. It transmits the data securely to the cloud, where alerts are configured and connected to the user’s operations center. Cipher Skin’s mesh both supplies power and transmits sensor data. Multiple Cipher Skin panels can be daisy chained together with a single power and a single communications connection.

CIPHER SKIN TECHNOLOGY

CIPHER SKIN CREATES A DATA FINGERPRINT THAT WILL SHOW CHANGES OVER TIME

Multiple data points from Cipher Skin sensors, taken continuously and pegged to a common timeline, allow for the prediction of the next section of pipe to fail.
