SOOFIE never sleeps, so you can find your leaks before someone else does
Just pennies per measurement, SOOFIE is the most cost-effective solution for leak detection
To put it simply, SOOFIE is a completely stand-alone real-time leak detection system. Powered by the sun with enough battery backup to survive a week of thick overcast, it has onboard LTE (or WiFi) securely trasmitting measurements to cloud-based servers for analysis. Best of all, SOOFIE protection can be had for less than the cost of your daily soft drink. Why are we so much less expensive than the competition? Search the scientific literature (or look at the publication section of our web page). We literally wrote the book on emissions quantification and we are exceedingly efficient at it. Whatever the tool, airplanes, UAVs or SOOFIE, one thing Scientific Aviation knows is how to measure the size of an emission source. In a nutshell, that’s what makes us different! Systems based on methane concentration will trigger false alarms when the wind dies or the atmospheric boundary layer collapses, leading to high methane measurements on the site. By combining sophisticated knowledge of the atmospheric boundary layer with the observed methane, we provide a leak rate measurement that is nearly immune to false positives.
Real -Time Dashboard
The SOOFIE dashboard is state-of-the-art! A regional map shows all sites, color coded by current methane emission relative to historical norms. Zoom in on the map to see which components on the site have been most frequently associated with high emission levels. Most important, SOOFIE actually uses multiple sensors to triangulate the probable emission source, so you don’t need to guess. To show you the dashboard, we have a demo account so you can sign in and see the fictitious “RadPad” owned by “RadOil”. Email or call and we can share the login info with you. Shown below is an example:
SOOFIE’S First Confirmed Save
Within one week of deploying the first SOOFIE sensors, they detected an anomaly on a nearby pad. This was NOT the pad SOOFIE had been deployed to monitor, but SOOFIE is not limited to detecting leaks on the pads where it resides. To avoid sending repairs crews blind, the system continuously identifies components that “might” be responsible for a given emission detected by one of the nearby sensors. As the wind direction changes, different sensors will fall downwind of the troublesome component causing it to rise to the top of the list. The dashboard lists the most probable sources, with the largest sources at the top. Additionally, when alerts are emailed to your technicians, the alert includes the “probable” source location so again, crews are never dispatched in the blind. They will always know where to start looking when they arrive on-site.
