Last month saw the largest annual conference and exposition in the United States take place in Chicago – AWWA ACE16
Here is a quick overview of what you missed!
At the Syrinix booth we had an industrious time in the busy Expo Hall testing blood pressures as an analogy to better understand exactly how pressure can affect a water network; demonstrating our analysis software RADAR and explaining how our pipeline monitoring solutions give you greater visibility and a clearer and better understanding of in-network happenings.
With Syrinix Pipeminder continuously monitoring at a speed of 128 s/s, it can detect transients and pinpoint activity that quite possibly has been causing you problems you’re not even aware of.
Transients of 316psi have been detected with an elapsed time of 0.008 seconds!
Knowing the cause of network stresses has untold benefits for utilities with regard to asset repair planning. Detailed high sample pressure data enables informed proactive decision making, and so reduces water hammer / transients, operational costs and ultimately saves breaks.
These points were emphasised in our free Breakfast Seminar where Kevin Fisher from Las Vegas Valley Water District, Dave Mountford from Australia’s SAFEgroup Automation and Clifford Chan from East Bay MUD shared their experiences and staggering results with transient management using Syrinix systems.
