RTTM-Model Compensated Mass Balance

Model Compensated Mass Balance (MCMB) is the most powerful and most accurate balancing method to detect pipeline leaks. More

Compensated Mass Balance

The basis of pipeline inventory calculation is the significant difference between Compensated Mass Balance (CMB) and MCMB. More

Pressure Gradient Evaluation

Leak locations are determined by the model-based pressure gradient intersection method. More

Negative Pressure Wave

The NPW method is based on the analysis of pressure signals. More
