SG Liner™ – Technology Overview and Updates:

The SG Liner is a game-changer, born from our Mobile Onsite Factory (MOF) - a cutting-edge, eco-friendly manufacturing facility. What makes it standout? The ability to quickly mobilize, set up, line miles of pipe and then move to the next access in less than a day, then ‘rinse and repeat’. Less in length than a city bus, the MOF does not just create the smallest jobsite, environmental footprint and the fastest and most diameter versatile onsite production in the industry, the competitive differentiators are an order of magnitude of improvement. The ability to tailor the composite liner on-site without depending on pre-made pipe sections or spools, saving on manufacturing costs and transport costs as well as a significant reduction in carbon emissions. Moreover, the SG Liner’s design is inspired by the rigorous PHMSA standards, ensuring safety, integrity, adaptability, and cost-effectiveness.

A notable feature of the SG Liner is the novel Micro-Rope™ carbon fiber reinforcement, which significantly enhances its design efficiency, pressure rating and cyclic life. Plus, its innate sensing matrix coupled with AI/ML H2 leak detection and physics-based modeling systems, offers operators real-time insights, ensuring the utmost in safety and efficiency.

Recent news? Our first MOF deployment and SG Liner installation far exceeded all expectations at a major hydrogen conversion project for the transition of an 18” oil pipeline to highly compressed hydrogen transmission in June of this year.

SG Coil™ – Technology Overview and Updates:

sg-localized-2 sg-localized-2

Parallel to the SG Liner, we're making strides with the SG Coil and Prong localized energy storage solutions. They offer a versatile storage solution for Hydrogen and other gases, with a novel design that minimizes potential failure points by an order of magnitude to H2 storage trailers and containers, making it safer and more space-efficient, while affording nearly 82,000 kg of hydrogen storage per acre-per level.

Fun Fact: By comparison, to store 82,000 kg of Hydrogen would require well over eighty-two (82) 53 ft. long hydrogen storage trailers/containers and 7 acres of laydown area, but then again, who’s counting?

Manufacturing the SG Coil and SG Prong is made possible through our Autonomous Manufacturing Vehicle or AMV, which is equipped with cutting-edge autonomous navigation, auto attuned manufacturing and AI, CV, and ML systems, ensuring precision at every step. The SG storage systems designs allow them to be easily incorporated into various settings, with subterranean options offering enhanced safety, increased capacity, and environmental benefits.

And here's the latest scoop: In early 2023, we completed our contract with the submittal an 86-page feasibility study through IQ4H2, for the utilization of the SG Coil and SG Prong systems for localized renewable energy storage and the results were, and to quote our client, “incredibly exciting”. Our governmental client is currently evaluating commencement dates for full FEED study and onsite pilot project.

Fiber Optic Deployment Tool (FODT)™ & Interrogation Systems: Technology Overview and Updates:

In collaboration through a BrainDrip sponsored research project with the University of Pittsburgh, we're bringing to life the FODT and innervated systems for composite liner and pipeline interrogation. The FDOT tool is transformative, allowing for the internal embedding of continuous optical and other fibers in pipelines, an unachieved feat by current systems. Our novel interrogation software and hardware systems can be utilized as embedded networks in SG Liner, SG Coil and SG Prong or utilized in existing legacy or new pipeline systems by way of FODT installation. Providing our technologies and clients with 24/7/365 millisecond updated data updates and alarms for encroachment, corrosion, temperature, flow, pressure, leaks, all with precision localization. Additionally, we are the industry groundbreaker and leader in the development of physics-based modeling interrogation software for pipeline and composite liner strain, fatigue, cyclic analysis/recording, and predictive modeling. This is a true industry revolution for safety and resiliency, and integrity management.


Initially developed for the natural gas sector, recent enhancements in the FODT have broadened its applicability, making it a potential game-changer across various pipeline systems. Our research partnership with the University of Pittsburgh stands as a beacon of collaborative success, setting the stage for continuing revolutionary endeavors.

BrainDrip's Conceptual Focus

BrainDrip's essence revolves around four pillars: materials, systematization, automation, and implementation. Whatever the project, we're committed to ensuring safety, environmental sustainability, human welfare, industry progression, and commercial success.
