1. Echologics EchoShore-DXe Leak Monitoring Sensor

The EchoShore-DXe acoustic leak monitoring sensor from Echologics is a valve-based sensor that extends the leak monitoring capabilities of the EchoShore-DX system. The sensor can attach magnetically to various appurtenances, including valves, boundary boxes, and underground hydrants — and works in tandem with the EchoShore-DX hydrant-based sensors — so utilities can get coverage where they need it. The sensor performs a scheduled, systemwide correlation to monitor, detect and locate leaks — even small and growing leaks. Sensors have 10-year battery life and support communications via LTE Cat-M1 and Narrowband Internet of things (NB-IoT) networks. Both the hydrant-based and valve-based sensors work together to provide optimal sensitivity and reliability. 



2. REHAU MUNICIPEX reclaim pipe

REHAU’s MUNICIPEX reclaim pipe is intended to facilitate water conservation through transporting nonpotable reclaimed water from the graywater treatment plant to point-of-use applications. Graywater reuse provides a drought-proof water source that eases water scarcity concerns and lightens the demands placed on alternative water sources. MUNICIPEX reclaim is meant for use across various markets aiming to participate in graywater reuse, such as irrigation and recreation, industrial applications, fire protection service, residential homes and commercial buildings.
