Optical fiber based sensor system for monitoring of infrastructures

FEBUS Optics is an innovative company based in Pau (France) bringing a new generation of optical fiber based sensor system to the market, in particular for the maintenance and monitoring of infrastructures.

Wasterwater monitoring system

FOPipe, a wastewater monitoring solution, enables the monitoring of water temperatures and flow rates. Based on distributed fiber optic sensing technology, it is the combination of FEBUS Optics patented measurement devices and our proprietary software solution, FOPipe Suite. Any failure is detected in real-time at any point in the pipeline and is precisely located on a map.

DETECTION OF INFILTRATIONS IN SEWER PIPELINES

Sewer pipeline networks are vulnerable to infiltration risks. Clean water mixes with wastewater, increasing the volume of water to be treated and generating additional treatment costs.

Such events require an adapted response. FOPipe, a distributed fiber optic sensing monitoring system, provides real-time detection of any infiltration and precise localization to:

  • implement maintenance operations as quickly as possible,
  • establish an appropriate response,
  • minimize financial losses.

DETECTING BLOCKAGES IN NETWORKS

A blocked sewer circuit leads to a malfunction in wastewater evacuation. Highly critical, blockages require prompt corrective action in the event of a faillure. FOPipe is the solution. Based on distributed fiber optic sensing technology, our pipeline integrity monitoring system provides reliable and accurate data.

Deployment of the FOPipe solution in sewers to ensure a continuous and real-time monitoring of the network

Ensuring a continuous and real-time monitoring of the entire sewer network enables to implement a preventive maintenance system to:

  • avoid complete blockage of the pipelines
  • increase the longevity of the sewer network
  • optimize the operation of the wastewater evacuation service.

DETECTION OF LEAKS IN WASTEWATER NETWORK

Leaks are critical type of events that can occur in a sewer pipeline. By increasing the risk of pollution by pathogens, they jeopardize the environment and increase health hazards for populations.

The FOPipe solution uses distributed fiber optic sensing to detect continuously and in real-time any failure in the pipeline network and generate an alert with precise location of the event.

Siwft intervention is organized, health and environmental risks due to groundwater pollution by pathogens are reduced.

FOPIPE FOR WASTEWATER PIPELINE MONITORING

The FEBUS Optics solution for monitoring wastewater networks relies on the performance of our interrogators and software.

Once the fiber optic cable has been deployed, measurements are continuously taken at every point in the pipelines:

FEBUS A1
(Rayleigh technology)

FEBUS G1-R
(Brillouin technology)
FEBUS T1-R
(Raman technology)

> Acoustics (DAS - Distributed Acoustic Sensing)

> Vibrations measurement

> Temperature (DTS - Distributed Temperature Sensing)

> For extensive networks

> Temperature (DTS - Distributed Temperature Sensing)

> For less extensive networks

Our software solution FOPipe Suite generates a real-time alert in case of a failure and precisely geolocates it on a map.

Providing complete monitoring of pipeline integrity, FOPipe is also easily integrated to any third-party control system.

OTHER FEBUS OPTICS PIPELINE MONITORING SOLUTIONS

FEBUS Optics offers its technologies, expertise, and support from its teams to monitor the integrity of various types of pipelines such as water pipelines and oil and gas pipelines.

Leak detection, preventive maintenance, detection of third-party intrusions near the pipeline, FOPipe offers complete, continuous, and real-time monitoring of the entire structure.

Finally, FEBUS Optics experts provide support and training to operational teams, measurement devices come with a 3-year warranty, a maintenance contract can be set as well as continuity of service.
