Water is one of the most important elements for our mankind. To guarantee it's supply far into the future, we have to minimize the contamination and the leakage, starting today. We can reach this goal through continious monitoring of the piping network. With the LeakControl System, costly leakages and a time consuming search after broken pipes, will be a thing of the past.
By monitoring the through-flow at hydraulically relevant points within the network, a leakage can be detected and is then allocated to a so-called “virtual zone”. This drastically reduces the area of a potential leakage in the network and consequently also reduces the efforts to locate it.
Leaks occur not only by extreme cold or external damages. Age and meterial related factors have also an influence on the leakproofness of a water pipeline and the quality of water. The damage can not be seen with the naked eye but can be detected by the LeakControl system. This innovative system monitors the water flow and reports problems when crossing a pipeline-specific flow limit. The small deviations are detected even by a few liters and visually displayed in the form of a diagram.
The system itself consists of two separate system components - the remote measurement station, as well as the base station for storage and graphic processing of the measurement data.
These modern measuring sensors - tailored to the specific network structure - are installed at various points of the distribution network. They register the flow in the water network and sent the measured data via GSM to a server. There, the information is analyzed. If deviations are found within the measured average values, the user is informed by a warning message. By using the data of all measuring stations in a coverage zone, damages and leakages can be pipointed accurately and a repair can be initiated immediately.
For the installation, only minimal public works are needed, due to the manhole system in Baden-Württemberg. The sensors are easy to install into existing manholes, without drilling and regardless of the pipe material. The DIN system supports a special installation lock, thus the civil engineering costs can be kept to a minimum here.
