RLE Technologies Introduces Low Smoke Zero Halogen Leak Detection Sensing Cable

Patented, Reliable Leak Detection Cable Now Available In Low Smoke Zero Halogen Composition

Fort Collins, CO – April 18, 2018 — RLE Technologies, a leading provider of web-based monitoring solutions and leak detection systems for mission-critical facilities, announced today that it has added a new product to their leak detection portfolio of products: low smoke zero halogen leak detection sensing cable.

RLE’s low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) cable responds to leaks in just the same way and just as quickly as the company’s orange leak detection sensing cables – water is detected and a signal is sent back to the leak detection controller, identifying the leak and sending notification to responsible parties immediately.  In addition, LSZH cable is specifically formulated to release significantly less smoke and zero halogen upon combustion. In the event of a fire the smoke released by the LSZH cable is lower in quantity, less optically dense (easier to see through), and releases fewer toxic and corrosive gases than other leak detection cables.  This makes exiting a space safer for employees and accessing the source of a fire easier for emergency personnel.  These intrinsic characteristics make RLE’s LSZH cable an excellent fit for specialty installs and applications with limited ventilation including subway tunnels, nuclear power plants, aircraft, tanks, ships and submarines, and subsea or offshore installations.

“We’ve been in the leak detection marketspace for more than 30 years,” says Don Raymond, RLE’s CTO and Founder. “We’ve learned to listen to the ever-changing needs of our customers, and have seen our products deployed in areas with specific sets of requirements.  The addition of this low smoke zero halogen cable lets us meet the needs of these facilities’ specialized requirements while providing the standard of leak detection that RLE is known for.”

RLE’s LSZH cable can be used inline with their patented orange leak detection sensing cable and can be used in new applications and integrated seamlessly into any existing RLE leak detection monitoring systems.  LSZH cable is in stock now and available for immediate shipment.

RLE Technologies Receives Patent for Embedded Mapping in Nested Facility Management Devices

Latest patent awarded for innovative mapping and nesting features that employ a distributed monitoring model in facility management systems

Fort Collins, CO – January 25, 2017 – RLE Technologies, a leading provider of web-based monitoring solutions and leak detection systems for mission-critical facilities, announced today that it has been awarded a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its Facilities Management System. This newly patented technology provides a highly interactive, visual representation of the facilities, sites, and equipment monitored by RLE environmental monitoring devices.

U.S. Patent No. 9,420,042, entitled “Facilities Management System” and marketed by RLE Technologies as Delta View, encompasses both the unique nesting feature currently used in RLE Technologies’ Falcon product line as well as the interactive mapping feature used in both the Falcon and SeaHawk product lines. Nesting allows a system of facilities management devices and sensors to be networked through linked map images. The visual links change state to report the existence of alarm conditions. This allows users to quickly analyze data from their connected equipment and immediately locate the sensor or networked hardware that has activated the alarm. The innovative technology integrates various management systems and communications protocols and provides a wide range of options for facility managers as their monitoring needs expand.

The new patent also covers the mapping technology found in both the Falcon monitoring system and a variety of RLE Technologies’ leak detection solutions. Interactive mapping allows users to upload a graphic (such as a facility map) to the facility management system and pinpoint the location of their monitoring tools which can include sensors, leak detection cable points, and other hardware devices. When alerts from these devices and points are activated, facility managers have a clear idea where the alarm is located and can rapidly respond to and address the problem.

“As critical facilities continue to grow in size and complexity, difficulties in their accurate and timely monitoring have been compounded,” said Don Raymond, Chief Technology Officer of RLE Technologies and co-inventor of the new system. “The distributed monitoring model within the Delta View nesting technology allows one facility monitoring system to be the single pane of glass for thousands of other linked monitoring systems, all of which have mapping capabilities. This allows facility managers to quickly identify which device is the source when an alarm occurs and gives them the opportunity to solve a problem before it can cause downtime.”

Don Raymond is one of the founding partners of RLE Technologies and has been developing new techniques and products to protect mission critical facilities for more than 30 years. In pursuit of this goal, he has been awarded nine patents.

RLE Technologies Releases Top Five Points of Protection for a Leak-Free 2015

An expert in leak detection, RLE Technologies explains what to consider to ensure a leak-free mission critical facility in the New Year

 

Fort Collins, CO – December 10, 2014 – RLE Technologies, a leading provider of water leak detection systems and web-based monitoring solutions for mission-critical facilities, today released its list of the top five threats for leaks in a mission critical facility and how to solve these issues, determined by its experts in leak detection and experience in data centers across the nation.

In an industry where just seconds of downtime represent enormous bottom line implications, leak detection and monitoring are crucial elements to consider in a highly sensitive facility. These five areas of focus are the most frequent points of failure from a fluid intrusion perspective:

  1. Faulty Mechanical Equipment: Uncapped sprinkler lines, leaky storage tanks, improperly monitored A/C units, leaking water filter units.
  2. Structural Failures: Leaky roofs, improperly installed windows, clogged drains, overall general faulty construction.
  3. Piping issues: Failing pipes/fittings/valves, freezing pipes, fluid hammer effect (a pressure build-up when fluids stop or change directions suddenly), faulty pipes in primary plumbing walls.
  4. Human Related Issues: Overflowing basins, accidental damage to sprinkler lines, intentional sabotage.
  5. Weather Related Fluid Intrusion: Minor flooding as a result of unexpected weather issues.

“Piping issues and faulty mechanical equipment are some of the most common causes of facility downtime,” explains RLE Technologies Executive Vice President, Jeremy Swanner, “For any of these five areas of threats, a comprehensive business continuity/disaster mitigation plan that includes robust and reliable monitoring equipment such as fluid sensing cable systems, are ideal proactive measures a facility manager can take to minimize the risk of costly downtime in 2015.”

RLE Technologies specializes in identifying and solving fluid leaks or detection issues in mission critical facilities, among other environmental concerns. View their leak-detection checklist here for further information or visit rletech.com.
