Nearly 20-30% of water production by the utilities is lost before it is delivered to a customer’s meter. Inability to detect the leaks correctly often results in fixing of the wrong pipe than the right one.
Costs for repairing the faulty pipes increase when assessment of water mains with conventional equipment including acoustic sensors, data loggers, electro-magnetic sensors, and visual inspections, lead to inaccurate results.
Summary of Electro Scan’s Multi Sensor Technology
Electro Scan’s technology integrates low voltage conductivity sensor, high definition camera, pressure sensor and acoustic sensor to offer accurate results. It can be used to check both pressurised and gravity water mains while the pipes stays operational.
Equipped with a neutrally buoyant fibre optic cable, the technology can be used to assess conditions in ‘up to 2,000ft (610m) of water main from a single point of entry, accessed through fire hydrants, air valves, flow meters, gate valves, and pressure fittings.’
“If a pipe leaks electricity, it leaks water. Now we can provide a reliable, repeatable, and measurable solution for the water industry, based on our proven technology already being deployed in the wastewater collection industry.”
Electro Scan, Inc. announced its sponsorship of seven (7) statewide workshops on Water Leak Detection that begin this week in California.
