  6. Next Generation Mag Meter: A Tool For Leak Detection
    9/26/2013

    Water — our most precious resource — is depleted globally by multiple activities. Common uses include drinking water, fire protection, agricultural/irrigation, manufacturing, food processing, etc. As our global population continues to increase, so does the need for fresh water supply. As a dynamic resource with many universal commitments, it is not surprising, with so many different global variables, that water scarcity is becoming a concern for both developed and developing countries. By Michelle Pawlowicz, marketing specialist, McCrometer

    Accurate and innovative, the LeakTuner leak-listening device locates leaks in water distribution pipelines. The range can be set to eliminate other sources of noise to discern even the quietest leaks. 

  8. BEACON Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) Makes Water Visible At UC Merced
    5/11/2015

    In California, water is precious, competition for water is fierce and conservation is critical. In the midst of the state’s worst drought to date, Governor Jerry Brown declared historic statewide mandatory water restrictions calling for a 25 percent reduction in water usage through February 2016.

  9. A Lesson In DMA Management
    3/28/2018

    White House Utility District (WHUD) is one of the largest water and sewer utilities in the state of Tennessee. While developing a network of pipelines, pumping stations and storage units was challenging, the greater test came in finding access to a plentiful water supply.

  10. CT2211 Leak Detection System Datasheet
    6/3/2015

    The European Commission’s Aerosol Dispensers Directive (ADD) legislation (UN ADR 2013, 75/324/EEC) mandates that aerosol dispensers and small receptacles containing compressed gas (gas cartridges) must pass a leak-proof test before they are transported. Cascade’s CT2211 leak detection system detects and rejects leaking aerosol cans up to a rate of 500 cans per minute. The system is contactless, ensuring minimal product damage or contamination.
