The Use of Untethered Acoustic Ball Technology To Locate Leaks in Pressurized Water Mains - Case Study
A CAUTIONARY CASE STUDY: MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, USA Investor-owned & municipal utilities may experience catastrophic damage if it relies on Untethered Acoustic Ball technology to locate leaks. As shown below, the inspection of a 10,000-feet (3km) of 36-inch (913mm) diameter Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP), gave a clean-bill-of-health with ‘NO LEAKS’ using a leading ...
Abstract A simple yet novel method has been developed which is useful for visualizing pressure distributions in acoustic wave fields. The method utilizes the power of contemporary computers to store ...

A permanently installed leak monitoring system for trunk mains that is both very sensitive (using correlating hydrophone sensors) and at the same time able to work independently for at least 5 years, using solar power for its data gateways. The data is sent to the GUTERMANN CLOUD allowing utilities to pinpoint leaks and investigate them remotely.
