Syrinix, the innovative leader in intelligent pipeline monitoring technologies, today announces the launch of PipeMinder, the next generation of monitoring hardware set to transform the way utility companies calm their networks and reduce leakage and bursts.
Utilities often depend on teams inspecting pipelines to spot leaks and bursts and repairing those they find. Current approaches comprise reacting to symptoms rather than addressing underlying causes.
Building on Syrinix’s established solution portfolio, PipeMinder combines a 5 year battery life, automated alerts for transients and bursts, and high resolution data capture. With PipeMinder utilities can see, at new levels of detail and accuracy, where they are at greatest risk of pipeline failure.
Efficiently equipped with that detailed network view, PipeMinder allows utilities to address the underlying causes and so actively and substantially reduce leaks and bursts in a way that has not been possible before.
James Dunning CEO said –
“PipeMinder is a step change in efficient and effective network management. Utilities are running faster and faster to stand still in the battle to reduce leakage and bursts on ageing networks. With the information provided by PipeMinder, utilities will see and address many of the underlying causes of those leaks and bursts and take a new and significant step forward in leakage and burst reduction.
“The choice between high resolution data capture for a short time, or low resolution for a long time, is a thing of the past. The need for different products for different applications with multiple data feeds is also a thing of the past.
“With PipeMinder we are giving utility managers a single device providing a high resolution view of pressures, flows and stresses on supply networks. Deployed across a network, PipeMinder is opening a major new front in network monitoring, calming and leakage and burst reduction strategies.
