There are many uses for a software based, real time leak detection system other than just leak detection. Leak detection systems, based on a real time model, have many uses, including instrument analysis, slack line flow detection, batch, scraper and DRA tracking.

These results can also be made available enterprise-wide for use by higher level processes such as accounting, scheduling, planning, and marketing.
