The article discusses the importance for petrochemical and gas companies to develop noise-source detection technique. It highlights the study conducted by college faculty Raul Ionel of the University of Timisoara, to determine advanced techniques in detecting pipe leaks and will also address various issues for such as advanced automation system operation. It notes the Labview and the USB-9215A technique used by Ionel which enables him to acquire signal and analysis application.
