Pipeline Monitoring

Uploaded on 4 Dec 2008

Soundprint AFO acoustic monitoring was designed by Pure Technologies to detect and locate pre-stressing wire failures in PCCP as they occur in real-time. It offers the only non-intrusive way to evaluate pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipes without the need for de-watering. SoundPrint can also be used to remotely monitor wire strand failures in pre and post-tensioned concrete water reservoir walls.

Sahara Leak Detection in Manila

Uploaded on 29 Apr 2011

Maynilad Water Services, the west zone concessionaire of the Philippine capital's water supply, have been pursuing an aggressive non-revenue water (NRW) reduction program since 2007. In 2010, Maynilad brought Pure Technologies' Sahara leak detection technology on board to assist with their NRW reduction program and during that year, 210 leak locations were located with approximately 73 million liters a day (MLD) of water being saved.

Leak Detection Program in Manila

Uploaded on 29 Apr 2011

Maynilad operates a pipeline network that runs for more than 6,000 km. A key element of Maynilad's strategy of NRW reduction is increased leak location and repair. Particularly important to the program's success is leak location on the large diameter primary mains. Leaks on these mains can often be undetected for years and can contribute greatly to NRW figures. Sahara leak detection is crucial to the NRW reduction program, having located numerous leaks, unknown laterals and illegal taps and connections.

42" Sewer Force Main Inspection - Robotics

Uploaded on 19 Sep 2011

In August 2011, Pure Technologies brought out the redesigned PureRobotics wastewater crawler unit to conduct an electromagnetic inspection on a 42-inch (1050mm) sewer force main for a major utility in Ontario, Canada. Pure was able to inspect 3,400 feet from a single access in both directions of the line. New improvements to the tracks assisted in pushing the crawler through the heavy debris at the bottom of the pipe that would otherwise entrap other robotic inspection systems.

Louisville Water Company - 60" PCCP Pipeline Inspection

Published on 13 Jul 2012

Louisville Water Company (LWC) needed an accurate condition assessment tool that didn't require pipeline shutdown and lengthy cleanup. The utility turned to Pure to provide a solution. The PipeDiver tool, moving with the flow of the water in the main, completed an 8.8-mile inspection of a 5-foot diameter PCCP main in eastern Jefferson County last month. Through a contract with LWC, Pure conducted the large-diameter PipeDiver electromagnetic inspection using the large launch and extraction stacks for the first time.
