Seal with Integrated Sensors
"This patent describes smart seals having elements that both seal and sense changes in sealing force and internal containment pressure. This technology allows for the detection of changes or reduction in sealing force that if undetected may lead to a leaking seal. This technology may also identify which bolt within a flanged fitting is loosening and causing a reduction in sealing force.
Some of the smart seals made by Odyssian Technology are known by the trademark sensorSEAL™. These seals can be standalone sensing and sealing devices or networked to make-up a larger smart piping system."
