  • Hole Dug, Leak Found - City Of Ottawa Entrusts Smartball Platform To Look For Leaks In Tranmsission Main

    When your inspection task is to survey a critical pipeline for leaks, nothing is more satisfying than trusting your technology to predict the leak location and then standing by as the client excavates the area to find a flow of water within one meter of exactly where you said it would be. The above-described "leak-where-predicted" recently happened with the City of ...

  • Robot Device for Pipe Inspection - Case Study

    In 2005, Pure Technologies (Pure), a provider of various structural monitoring and leak-detection technologies, set about to develop a pipeline assessment tool that could monitor and report on the condition of pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipes (PCCP) utilized in municipal water and sewer systems. The tool’s competitive advantage would be accurate assessment decoupled from the need to ...

  • Pure Technologies And Wrc Unite For Leak And Gas Pocket Survey On Critical Main For Irish Water And Cork County Council

  • Danger and Detection of Hydrogen Sulphide Gas in Oil and Gas Exploration and Production

    A rig worker smells rotten eggs near the well head, rubs his itchy eyes as he investigates the frosty pipe connections. After a few moments, he believes all is fine as he no longer smells the tell-tale hydrogen sulphide odour. In this scenario, we can only hope the worker recognises the danger and quickly leaves the site. Oil fields, especially mature ones, can produce hydrogen sulphide gas ...

  • QuadOa and OGI: how EPA regulations are changing the way we look at gas leaks

    Earlier this year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published Regulation 40 CFR, Part 60, Sub-part OOOOa, commonly known as Quad Oa, and finally brought optical gas imaging (OGI) firmly into the mainstream. This presents a major shift in the way fugitive emissions are regulated, and the technology that can be used.  Detecting and acting on gas leaks is naturally a major ...

  • Monitoring Water Resources Beyond Irrigation

    Over the past year, California’s governor has taken unprecedented action, requiring Californians to drastically cut potable urban water use. While the restrictions may seem harsh to some, it actually provides an opportunity for building managers and community association boards to implement an effective long-term water conservation program. And the result can be significant dollar savings. ...

  • Freezing Temperatures Could Place Commercial Properties in Hot Water

    With another frigid winter on the way, frozen cooling tower valves and pipe leaks are likely to wreak havoc on commercial property water usage. “As temperatures dropped below zero last year, we began receiving dozens of calls from property managers about their cooling tower’s solenoid valve freezing in the fill position and water continuously flowing out,” states David ...

  • Spiral-Wound Elements for Potable Water Treatment

    Introduction Any new technology must overcome perceptions of the marketplace, which are not accurate. As a technology moves into new areas of application, new misconceptions also arise. Crossflow membrane technology is no exception. The first man-made, pressure-driven 'crossflow' membranes were made in flat sheet form. This membrane had to be configured in a device, and was first made in ...

  • How to Save with Cooling Tower Credits

    Cooling towers dissipate heat from recirculating water used to cool chillers, air conditioners, or other process equipment to the ambient air. Heat is rejected to the environment from cooling towers through the process of evaporation. Therefore, by design, cooling towers use significant amounts of water. The thermal efficiency and longevity of the cooling tower and equipment depend on the proper ...
