MONITOR FOR DAMAGING PRESSURE SWELLS WITH SURGEVIEW™.
Utilities need to identify which pipes are under stress and face higher risk in order to prioritize inspection and replacement. By using real-time detection of pressure transients, SurgeView can determine problematic sources while enabling operational efficiencies through pipe failure prediction and quicker crew response times when issues arise. This helps prioritize inspection and replacement, thereby prolonging the effective life of network assets.
TRANSIENT HOTSPOT LOCATIONS.
Find which hydraulic elements are causing damaging transients, where the sources of these transients are located, and which parts of the network are overstressed due to transients.
CONDITION AND STRESS LEVEL MONITORING.
Over time, SurgeView will learn the different pressure variations across the network to help identify and monitor critical pipes that exhibit deteriorating conditions and predict likely failures due to the presence of damaging transients.
HARNESS THE POWER OF DECISION INTELLIGENCE.
As a tool in Xylem’s new platform of disruptive technologies, SurgeView Transient Pressure Monitoring helps utilities fix leaks and costly breaks intelligently by preventing them at the source.
XYLEM’S SURGEVIEW TRANSIENT PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM WILL:
- Save on CapEx by identifying failure-prone network points for surge mitigation, proactive asset management or replacement
- Avoid critical failures by performing early and targeted interventions
- Extend asset life by identifying and mitigating the damaging transients
- Report pressure management performance with high-resolution data (up to 256 samples per second)
- Monitor the impact of valve operations in your network
NETWORK MONITORING THAT GOES THE DISTANCE.
SurgeView monitoring stations can be easily deployed at optimal locations across the network or near a suspected source of damaging transients (either permanently or on a short-term basis) to deliver better pressure intelligence. With a detection range of up to 1 mile per sensor, even a small number of sensing units can sufficiently cover large pipe lengths, wirelessly transmitting pressure data in real-time to the SurgeView software. Because every utility is unique, Xylem offers two different sensing configurations, each capable of working with third-party hardware options, to help meet specific leakage and burst detection needs. And when paired with Xylem’s LeakView™ system, SurgeView is an even more powerful sensing and monitoring solution that enables greater efficiency with faster reactions to potentially harmful network events.
DISCOVER HOW 3+3 COULD EQUAL MILLIONS.
In three simple steps and three short months, you can be on a path to reducing pipe stress while protecting and prolonging asset life. Getting started with a discovery pilot is easy:
First, we conduct an initial discovery session to identify your current state, needs and objectives, as well as early identification of potential opportunities.
Next, we’ll deploy 5-20 sensors covering 5-10 miles of critical pipe to conduct a controlled experiment to validate surge detection and localization capabilities.
Finally, we collaborate with you in a workshop where we provide a summary presentation and discuss our analysis. The outcome is a prioritized set of recommendations and practical next steps to extend asset life.
