How the Leak Detection Service works

Device for the inspection of the network.


The data is collected by the surveyor who, equipped with ©Picarro technology, carefully inspects the network during the nighttime.


The data collected is analyzed by machine learning algorithms and by the risk classification analytical module in order to identify LISAs (Leak Indication Search Areas).

Thorough search via backpack.


Italgas technicians use the ©Picarro backpack to inspect the network within the LISAs and provide a list of the leaks and their exact location. Algorithms determine the priority of actions based on the analysis output.
