Electronic Leak Detection

1. Hermann Sewerin GmbH SeCorrPhon AC 200

The SeCorrPhon AC 200 from Hermann Sewerin GmbH combines the characteristics of a correlator with acoustic water leak detection, combining prelocation, pinpointing and correlation in one single system.

2. MyTana Locate and Leak Detection Package

MyTana’s Locate and Leak Detection Package helps save time finding leaks in utility lines. The LD40 leak detector works like a stethoscope to detect hissing, trickle or seeping sounds while filtering out background noises. It can detect through any surface and has an easy-to-understand, real-time visual response meter, enabling operators to listen and watch for leaks. Five frequency bands help users home in on hard-to-find leaks, so the LD40 is suitable for use on vertical line leaks, slab leaks and irrigation leaks. The package includes the RL8873 locator and RT8872 transmitter, which can locate most buried utility lines. 800-328-8170;

3. Siemens Process Instrumentation flowmeters

Leak detection technology offered in Siemens Process Instrumentation flowmeters allows municipalities to promptly and accurately locate leaks or breaks in their distribution systems. In addition, efficient pumping algorithms built into Siemens pump controllers allow implementation of economy pumping routines to best suit electricity peak pricing. High-accuracy flow measurement systems can save money and improve chemical treatment systems. Together, these technologies result in more cost-efficient plant operation, helping solve inefficient energy practices that can result in excess energy costs of up to 30%. 800-365-8766;
