FUS-LDS Leak Detection SystemFUS-LDS Leak Detection System


The Siemens FUS-LDS Leak Detection System offers a complete software and hardware solution for liquid pipelines. The FUS-LDS uses clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeters mounted directly onto the pipeline. SIMATIC WinCC leak detection software monitors all flowmeters and pipeline segments, serving as a quick and reliable way for the pipeline operator to detect and localize leaks.
The FUS-LDS does not require continuous operator attention, because the alarm thresholds are pre-set and alert the operator when attention is needed. The system also has the ability to detect very small leaks by allowing the operator to utilize “visual trending.” A fully optimized system eliminates the occurrence of false alarms.
This system lives up to the requirements of pipeline companies and regulatory agencies while ultimately satisfying one major goal: providing users and the community with peace of mind.
