  • Locating Leaks for Cooling Water Systems

    This article illustrates how to locate leaks on cooling water systems in loud, industrial environments like Nuclear or Coal power generating plants without digging or putting anything inside the pipeline.  Infrared-Energy Pattern Analysis (IR-EPA) works on all pipeline sizes and all pipeline materials because it identifies the water outside the pipeline instead of listening for leak noises ...

  • What Causes Water Main Leaks?

    The number one cause of water leaks today and moving into the future will be the aging infrastructure. “A large part of the US public water system dates back to the years shortly after World War II, therefore, a significant amount of buried infrastructure is at or very near the end of its useful life.” – Qureshi & Shah, Journal AWWA. When aging infrastructure is combined ...

  • Experimental investigation of leak hydraulics

    In recent decades the hydraulics of leaks, i.e. the definition of the relationships linking the hydraulic quantities in pipes with leaks, has received increasing attention. On the one hand, the definition of the relationship between the leak outflow and the relevant parameters – e.g. the leak area and shape, the pressure inside the pipe and outside the leak, and the pipe material ...

  • Tackling Non-Revenue Water by Identifying Small Leaks

    Small leaks sink big ships – the same can be said for large-diameter pipes in utility networks. While large leaks or ruptures are seen as newsworthy stories accompanied by images of water flowing down the streets; smaller leaks can often be more devastating. Left undetected, they can add up over time, contributing significantly to ...

  • Petrox Bioremediation of Oil Pipeline Leak

    Petrox bioremediation was used to treat unrefined oil that leaked from a pipeline in Texas.  The oil migrated from the impacted soil into ground water and seeped into the surface water in a nearby river.  After one application of Petrox, the oil concentrations in ground water at the source decreased from 600ppm to less than 100 ppm.  Two more treatments reduced the ...

  • Leak behaviour in pressurized PVC pipes

    The correct definition of the leak law, i.e. the relationship between the leak outflow, the total head at the leak and other relevant parameters such as the pipe material, can seriously affect the accuracy of the numerical models used for the management of water distribution systems, either if they are used to forecast the leakage reduction by pressure management or to locate and size the leaks ...
