Network Pressure Management

DO YOU NEED TO REDUCE LEAKAGE?

Pressure monitoring to reduce network leakage

heavy rain london

 Minimise water leakage.

 Identify network problems before they develop.

 Achieve regulatory targets.

 Reduce customer complaints.

 Calculate pressure profiles for network modelling.

 Avoid cost of replacing treated water lost through leakage

 Investment plans remain in tact instead of being diverted in favour of leakage resolution

WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL

 

Premis calculates the pressure profiles in the network and has adaptive alarm limits.

This means that over, for example a month, it will ‘learn’ the profile of the varying local water pressure trends; diurnally, weekly and monthly and adjust the alarm limits for any given site accordingly.

Any variation to the normal trend within any particular time frame will signal an alarm.

Full solution: combining advanced and unique telemetry with comprehensive reporting and control functionality.

Leakage Easily calculated and reporting via the web is both clear and simple.

Low cost remote monitoring with short installation time and cheap data collection mean Premis can be used cost-effectively for network modelling.

Low Maintenance cost: the unit requires only periodic battery replacement for continued operation. This is completed at site removing the cost and lost data of a return-to-factory regime.

REPORTING AND CONTROL

 

Data provided enables a water company to have a much better idea of what is occurring below ground.

Leakage is easily calculated and reporting via the web is both clear and simple.

Standard reports can be made available to a wide audience.

Access to the data is available 24/7.

Access also available to long-term historical data from the date of installation.

HOW DOES PRESSURE MANAGEMENT WORK?

 

Point Orange or MM3P battery powered RTUs are coupled with a pressure sensors and installed on water mains to measure the water flow at key points within the network .

Wireless networks are used to send data in sent in real time, if an alarm is triggered, or at pre-determined intervals to a central processor for analysis and reporting.

The sooner any loss of pressure and potential points of leakage are identified, the faster work orders can be generated to respond and manage the problem.

HOW PRESSURE MANAGEMENT HELPS NETWORK PLANNING

 

Maintaining water supply is key to the efficient running of a network.

Supply can be influenced not just by leakage, but by additional demand placed upon it through expansion and development within the water company’s supply area.

Low cost remote monitoring, provides the data needed for cost-effective network modelling.

The impact of planned developments and ‘what if’ scenarios on the water supply can be calculated with more certaintly.
