A Successful Trial for Aquarius Spectrum’s acoustic Leak Detection technology in Australia
A leading Australian sewerage and water service corporation was looking for advanced solutionsin order to detect and reduce water pipe leakages and prevent major pipe bursts and asset failure.
During July 2018, a trial was conducted using AquariusSpectrum’sAQS-SYSacoustic monitoring technology.As part of the trial, 18vibrationcorrelated accelerometer sensors were installed on areas of the water network. The installation was very easy and quality results were quickly achieved.24 hoursfrom activation ofthe system, theAQS system accurately pinpointed a leak that was clearly indicated by correlation from several “couples”including a couplewith adistance between the sensors ofover 1,200 meters. The detection at such a distance was possible due to the sophisticated sensor technology and advanced algorithms utilized by Aquarius Spectrum.
