The acceptance procedure, standard with any TCS installation, confirmed the outstanding performance of the system in Guangzhou. Each section was individually examined. The focus of each test series is a prepared valve integrated in the pipeline system at the opening for air, for water or at the sampling point. It has a defined opening visible to the human eye only in back light, letting through a weak glimmer. The pipeline is pressurized over a defined period, and the quantity of the leaking fuel is determined. The accuracy is measured by the relation of the calculated and the determined leakage rate and referred to the section volume. The obtained data in tests without an artificially-created leakage allow a conclusion to be drawn about loose valves, air or water in the pipeline system.
The test results confirmed the decision of Bluesky management level for a control system that reliably detects hair-fine tears and minimal leakages. An excellent cooperation between the Bluesky team and the experts of hansaconsult marked the nocturnal start-up. Dr. Klaus Peters and Jürgen Grötzbach of hansaconsult appreciated the Chinese mentality and orientation toward Health-Safety-Environment (HSE) principles for excellent comprehensive measures for accident prevention and careful handling of natural resources.
Mobile Flexibility for Smaller Pipeline Systems
Baiyun represents a perfect connection of the latest technology and a consequent environment protection. However, Chinese airports with less ambitious technical automation are interested in the mobile version of TCS, which checks tightness of single sections with the same sensitivity and accuracy.
