Pipeline leak detector is a kind of equipment used to detect pipeline leakage, and its appearance provides convenience for pipeline inspection. This paper will introduce the development of pipeline leak detector and its application in pipeline inspection.


I. The origin of pipeline leak detector

The origin of pipeline leak detector can be traced back to the early 20th century, when it was mainly used to detect leaks in water pipes. The initial pipeline leak detector is manually operated, the operation is complicated and the accuracy is not high. With the continuous progress of science and technology, the pipeline leak detector is also improving, and gradually realize the automation and intelligence.

Second, the development of pipeline leak detector

1, the progress of signal processing technology

The development of signal processing technology of pipeline leak detector is one of the important aspects. Early pipeline leakage tester mainly uses analog signal processing technology, with the development of digital signal processing technology, pipeline leakage tester signal processing accuracy and stability has been greatly improved.

2, the improvement of detection technology

The improvement of detection technology of pipeline leak detector is also an important aspect of its development. Initially, the pipeline leak detector mainly uses acoustic wave detection technology, and then gradually developed a variety of detection technologies such as gas detection and automatic analysis. The application of these new technologies makes the detection accuracy and efficiency of pipeline leak detector has been improved.

3、Intelligent operation interface

With the development of intelligent technology, the pipeline leakage tester's operation interface is also intelligentized. Now the pipeline leak detector generally use touch screen or liquid crystal display, the operation interface is simple and intuitive, convenient for users to use.

Third, the application of pipeline leak detector

Pipeline leak detector has a wide range of applications in pipeline testing. It can be used to detect water, gas, oil and other pipeline leakage, can also be used to detect chemical, pharmaceutical and other production processes in the pipeline leakage. At the same time, the pipeline leak detector is also widely used in water supply and drainage engineering, municipal engineering and other infrastructure construction.


The development of pipeline leak detector is a reflection of the continuous progress of science and technology, which provides a more accurate, fast and convenient method for pipeline detection. With the continuous development of science and technology, we have reason to believe that the future pipeline leak detector will be more intelligent, efficient and accurate, providing more quality services for pipeline detection.
