Detect and Manage Leaks in Water Transmission Networks

The most critical route for water losses in water transmission systems is a leak. This is typical of undermanaged networks. Mitigate loss with a hydraulic model-based engine for near real-time identification of leaks and location.

Detect the Leak in Real-Time

  • The Aquis Water Network Management Leak Detection System (LDS) identifies leaks and bursts in water transmission networks
  • Estimation of the severity of the leak is based on mass balance
  • The system runs a dynamic real-time simulation model to generate leak responses. This means the LDS can work under all operating conditions including periods with starting and stopping of pumps, opening and closing of valves
  • The outcome of this dynamic system is near real-time detection of leaks

Accurately Locate the Leak

  • Pre-location of the leak is carried out based on the pressure gradient method
  • A high grade of accuracy on the location can be achieved dependent on the characteristics of the instrumentation and network
  • For that reason, the installation of high accuracy devices are strongly recommended (at least 0.1% for pressure meters and 0.5% for flow meters)

Robust Leak Management with SCADA Integration

  • Easy to configure data services to access most modern SCADA systems
  • Check incoming measurements and emulate missing or faulty data
  • Clear presentation of results with a comprehensive graphical user interface
  • Leak alarms are stored in the LDS event log and can be transferred to the SCADA system
