The solution for a safer future
Leak detection for district cooling pipelines
WiDetect is a complete leak detection system consisting of intelligent detection units and software applications. The system is designed to detect and locate leaks on district cooling pipelines before the damage becomes too severe.
The intelligent leak detection system
Wideco has for more than 35 years developed leak detection systems for district cooling systems. Today we offer one of the world’s most innovative concepts for preventing, detecting and securing leaks in various types of pipelines. WiDetect system is designed to proactively monitor your district cooling pipelines, thereby optimizing operational reliability, ensuring the energy efficiency of the pipelines and reducing the risk for costly damages.

Safer operation and lower costs
By proactively monitoring the pipeline systems, leaks can be detected and reduced before major damage occurs. This means that the operational reliability, customer satisfaction and energy efficiency are optimized. Costs are minimized over time and you can keep focusing on your core business.
Patented technology for district cooling systems
Mainly due to issues related to condensation, conventional uninsulated sensor wires are not a recommended solution for leak detection for district cooling systems. The data will simply not be accurate enough, which to a large extent defeats the purpose of a leak detection system.
Wideco has solved this problem by developing a patented sensor cable, WiDetect 3Dc, which eliminates all problem related to condensed moisture. The 3Dc sensor is easily assembled.
