Leak noise detectors and monitoring systems among products featured
Fluid Conservation Systems (FCS) will be exhibiting at the Distribution Systems Symposium and Exposition (DSS), September 21-24 in Austin, Texas.
Featured at the FCS booth (#300) will be its Permalog +. Deployed throughout a utility’s distribution system, Permalog + units attach magnetically to valves and use advanced algorithms to discern the acoustic signature of leaks from background noise. The units ‘wake up’ and listen during the night when ambient noise is at its lowest. If leak noise is detected, the unit reports this information via a two-way radio link, along with the general location of the leak, to a mobile unit that can then send a crew to pinpoint and repair the leak.
In addition to the Permalog +, FCS will also feature its Permalog + AMR unit and its new PDA-based Patroller 2 drive-by monitoring unit. Information on FCS’ full line of water detection equipment will also be available, including the AC Digital noise correlator, Xmic electronic ground microphone and SoundSens multi-point leak noise correlation unit.
