Request: Monitor integrity of plastic composite pipes by monitoring water leakages

Method: In-mold RFID sensors and readers network

Integrity management of thermoplastic composite pipes can be done much more easily if the right data is available. As they often transport flammable or even explosive liquids, no electricity can be used.

cosine developed in-mold sensors that can be embedded in the material and an RF readout system that can read out the sensors while passing by at speed.

The sensors measure water, strain, temperature and corrosion. As they can withstand the high temperatures of the production process of the pipes, the sensors can be integrated into the outer layers of the pipe during production.
