VIMS - Vacuum Interstice Monitoring System

VIMS is the smart solution for leak detection and leak prevention for double walled pipes and tanks.

VIMS is the smart solution for leak detection and leak prevention for double walled pipes and tanks. A leak in either of the walls will be detected before any product can enter the environment.

VIMS fulfils the highest level of environmental protection and meets the requirements for class I leak detection EN 13160-2.

FAFNIR Process Technology

VIMS provides the perfect solution:

  • No false alarms
  • The FAFNIR VISY-Command GUI displays alarms and differentiates by type and component:

Air leak: the secondary wall is no longer tight, but the vacuum in the interstice is still maintained. There is no immediate risk for environmental pollution, which allows a certain reaction time for trouble shooting.

Water leak: Ground water enters through the secondary. No immediate environmental risk. Allowance for sufficient reaction time for maintenance.

Product leak on a tank: STP will continue running to empty the tank. Tank refilling should be prevented.

Product leak on a pipe: Primary pipe is leaking. The STP will create overpressure in the interstice and product might pollute the environment. In case of product in the interstice, the STP will be shut down immediately.
