KROHNE Academy online extends with a free eLearning course dedicated to pipeline monitoring

The two modules cover various subjects from historical development to typical applications of leak detection systems

Pipeline transport of fluids is a growing market all around the world. As the volume of substances transported increases, so does the importance of leak monitoring. KROHNE now offers a free eLearning course dedicated to helping engineers understand how leak monitoring systems work.

Participants will find a broad range of topics related to pipeline leak detection in two course modules. The first module covers historical development, leak detection system requirements, causes of leaks, leak detection options, non-continuous leak detection, continuous external leak detection and continuous internal leak detection. The second module features leak localisation, Human Machine Interfaces, additional functions in leak detection and typical applications of leak detection systems.

The course is part of the KROHNE Academy online which is a free online training tool covering topics in the field of industrial process measurement. It is suitable for staff in practical roles, who come into contact with a wide variety of measuring tasks daily, as well as students or anyone else with an interest in the subject, wanting to ensure they are up to date with measuring technology and applications in technical facilities.

Project Manager Steffen Brauers explains: "The KROHNE Academy online is not intended to replace the regular KROHNE Academy seminars, but to supplement them. The learning content on the online platform is free of charge and can be accessed anytime anywhere, so learning becomes more flexible for the participant."

As with the seminars, the content of the KROHNE Academy online is vendor-independent. The audio/video courses stand out for their clear structure, starting with the basics and moving on to interpretations, advantages and limitations, then applications and industries where the technology is applied. After a short evaluation, the participant can request a certificate to state successful participation. No previous knowledge is required for the web-based training, however a certain level of technical understanding is helpful.
