PRESSURE MANAGEMENT IN WATER SUPPLY SYSTEMSPressure management in water systems saves money, energy and water.
Water networks operate under pressure. Due to the obsolescence of pipes and the desire to reduce the pressure in pipelines to achieve less stress on the system, additional measurements are needed at key measurement points. AQ pressure sensors, which also have an integrated temperature gauge, shall be installed at the measuring points where the pressure could fall below the desired limit.
AQ sensors are developed for battery-powered devices and have an extremely low power consumption allowing operation for several years without changing batteries. This allows real-time data to monitor changes in pressure and temperature of the water in the network.
The data is collected on the AQ WEB software interface where pressure fluctuations in the pipeline network can be monitored. Pressure combined with temperature is an excellent indicator of pipeline losses.
