Redefining the limits of what is possible, we improve performance, reduce operational costs and extend the lifespan of any asset. Applying the power of the world’s highest performing distributed acoustic (iDAS™ and Carina® Sensing System) and temperature sensing (ULTIMA™ DTS, XT-DTS) technologies, we deliver distributed fibre optic monitoring solutions on both new and existing cable installations with the highest levels of accuracy in the industry. MORE

Distributed fibre optic sensing means a single cable can be used for multiple applications such as borehole seismic, fracture monitoring, flow profiling, leak detection, and well integrity.

Oil & Gas

Our range of downhole sensing applications and enabling technologies make Silixa the right choice for permanent reservoir and well monitoring.

Modern pipeline surveillance calls for pipeline integrity, real-time leak detection and threat identification. Optical fibre based distributed sensing revolutionises pipeline monitoring.

Pipeline Surveillance

Our technology offers continuous pipeline integrity monitoring by simultaneously detecting intrusion and leak events along the pipeline.

Silixa’s Process Metering enables non-invasive flow measurement in several pipes simultaneously using a single, continous length of optical fibre.

Process Metering

Non-intrusive metering for all plant flows with a single fibre, regardless of pipe material or flow type.

Our fibre optic technologies offer opportunities for innovative sensing applications where the processes being observed operate on ranges from centimetres to kilometres.

Distributed Sensing

Our monitoring solutions provide the highest spatial & temporal resolution for data capture over large surfaces and long lengths.

Silixa is raising money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

The Silixa team are raising money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, a charity which ensures that nurses, doctors and research teams can provide the very best care to patients and develop life-saving treatments to be used around the world. We lost our Commercial Director, Mick Longton, to cancer in October 2017. We would like to celebrate his life, pay tribute to his accomplishments and keep his memory alive by supporting this charity that funds state-of-the-art[...]

Silixa to present on non-intrusive process metering at the Mines and Technology Show in London on 29 November 2017

What if you could meter every flow in your mine or plant? Silixa’s non-intrusive process metering product makes it possible to meter many process flows continuously using only a single, extended length of optical sensing fibre. Recent case studies demonstrate how this technology can be installed throughout a plant, without any disruption to ongoing operations, on slurry, water and gas process pipes. Daniel Finfer’s presentation (BDM – Process Metering) at the Mines and Technology Show will[...]

What is distributed sensing?

Distributed sensing is a technology that enables continuous, real-time measurements along the entire length of a fibre optic cable. Unlike traditional sensors that rely on discrete sensors measuring at pre-determined points, distributed sensing does not rely upon manufactured sensors but utilises the optical fibre. Read more

Pipeline Surveillance

Our technology offers continuous pipeline integrity monitoring by simultaneously detecting intrusion and leak events along the pipeline.

The Silixa Surface Flow Meter enables real-time monitoring of fluid flow within the pipe, and measures the fluid velocity for single and two-phase flow.

Process Metering

The sensing fibre can be attached to the exterior of a pipe (non-intrusive) to monitor the fluid composition and velocity within the pipe.

Our fibre optic technologies offer opportunities for innovative sensing applications where the processes being observed operate on ranges from centimetres to kilometres.
