TrunkMinder automatically and continuously monitors water pipelines to provide early identification of emerging and emergent leaks that are often the precursor to a catastrophic failure, to provide instantaneous alerts should a burst occur and to gather operational data on a second by second basis.
TrunkMinder's sensitivity, combined with its real-time feedback, provides pipeline managers with immediate alerts and the time to act when the first, small leak is detected. This early warning can prevent a catastrophic pipe failure and the resulting associated emergency response, service interruption, traffic congestion, substantial flooding and insurance claims.
Thanks to its intelligent capabilities that learn and understand a pipe's normal use cycle, TrunkMinder prevents false alarms. Real alerts can pinpoint the site of an initial leak to within one metre along the pipe, providing operators with absolute confidence when planning remedial work.

How TrunkMinder works
TrunkMinder utilises a combination of sensors, permanently attached to pipelines, to provide the client with a clear and real-time picture of what is happening along the monitored pipeline. Each sensor includes a hydrophone, geophone, pressure sensor and optional flow monitor, and is physically attached to the pipe at up to 750 metre centres.
TrunkMinder sensor units are in continuous contact via data links to a computerised monitoring facility, which analyses the data received many times a second. A sophisticated computer model compares the information received, with the expected data for use at that time, allowing changes in activity to be noted and monitored, and providing users with a highly qualified alert. Alerts can be delivered by SCADA or SMS with ongoing information also viewable via a web-accessed online dashboard.
TrunkMinder’s automated constant monitoring with early warning allows minor leaks of less than 50 litres per hour to be detected and tracked, allowing early intervention to prevent catastrophic failures and avoiding the cost and inconvenience of surveys. In addition, TrunkMinder provides remedial work teams with the location of the leak source, accurate to within one metre along the pipe.
TrunkMinder is included in the UK Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme's Water Technology List.
