Water Loss and Leak Detection White Papers, Case Studies, and Application Notes

  1. Using Advanced Metering Infrastructure To Control Water Loss
    6/12/2015

    Leakage is one of the primary concerns for water utilities worldwide, yet North American investment in water loss has, historically, not addressed the problem with sufficient urgency or expertise.

  2. Leak Detection And Management
    10/7/2014

    These days, operators and managers of water treatment plants are losing sleep. Why? Because they may be losing water.

  3. Wireless PRV Monitoring Application Note
    11/21/2013

    Pressure reducing valves (PRVs) are used throughout water distribution systems to reduce pipeline pressure to a predetermined set point. This decreases water loss and prevents pipe breaks.

  4. Worry-Free Water Metering With Advanced Electromagnetic Technology
    2/24/2017

    Accurate measurement of water consumption across a large metropolitan area is no easy task, but for a water company it can mean the difference between profitability and throwing money down the drain. That’s why City West Water, a major water supplier to residential, commercial and industrial sites in and around the city of Melbourne, Australia, has been working with Siemens for more than a decade to install SITRANS F M MAG 8000 electromagnetic water meters at high-consumption sites and in fire service applications.

  5. Echologics: Jalur Cahaya Sdn Bhd Turns To Echologics For Acoustic Leak Detection
    9/3/2012

    Jalur Cahaya Sdn Bhd (JCSB) is a full-service environmental engineering company that helps Malaysian water utilities reduce non-revenue water (NRW).

  6. Leak Detection Theory: Optimizing Performance With MLOG
    12/20/2011
    Detecting leaks in a water distribution system is based upon measuring sound vibrations that travel down distribution pipes.
  7. Leak Detection Using Conductivity
    11/11/2013

    Virtually all industries from food and beverage to chemical processing use heat exchangers, condensers,or jacketed vessels. Leakage of the process into the cooling water represents a loss of product and can be a source of fouling or corrosion in the cooling water system.

  8. City Upgrades AMI System For Boost
    9/16/2015

    The city of Yakima services approximately 19,000 accounts within 27 square miles in the Yakima Valley. Frequent droughts, above average water loss and inaccurate meters prompted the city to search for a vendor who could provide a turnkey solution complete with a quality product line. The selected vendor also needed to have an endpoint that could withstand the extreme conditions experienced inside their meter pits including high humidity and varying temperatures.

  9. How Advanced Metering Infrastructure Controls Water Losses
    11/7/2016

    Leakage is one of the primary concerns for water utilities worldwide, yet North American investment in water loss has, historically, not addressed the problem with sufficient urgency or expertise. Slowly, the regulatory lag to efficiently control leakage is beginning to shift, however.

  10. Thanks To Digital Upgrade, Castle Rock’s Asset Management Becomes Model For State
    6/19/2014

    With a population of 55,000, the town of Castle Rock, Colorado, was named to “Money” magazine’s list of 100 Best Places to Live in America. It’s also a town on the cutting edge of managing its water, wastewater and storm water system assets with the help of the Hydrant and Valve Inspector from AMERICAN Flow Control (AFC) and Trimble Navigation.
