Automatic Line Leak Detection

 

A method of leak detection which alerts the operator to the presence of a leak without any manual effort on the part of the operator, including a device or mechanism that signals the presence of a leak by restricting or shutting off the flow of a hazardous substance through piping, or by triggering an audible or visual alarm, and which detects leaks of 3 gallons per hour at 10 psi line pressure within 1 hour.
