Hydromax Enters Agreement to Provide Detection Services’ Technologies

Hydromax USA and Detection Services have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to enter into an exclusive licensing agreement to deliver pipeline inspection services to the water and sewer sectors in the United States, Canada and other selected markets. Hydromax USA also announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Detection Services, Australia.

The signing took place at the AWWA ACE2016 Annual Conference last week, where Hydromax USA exhibited its broad portfolio of infrastructure condition assessment services, and satellite based leak detection technology. Hydromax USA is already providing infrastructure condition assessment programs impacting hundreds of thousands of assets to clients throughout the United States as well as non‐revenue water solutions including satellite leak detection technology.

p‐Cat utilizes an advanced technique that uses fluid transient pressure waves for detecting the sizes and locations of pipeline defects including corrosion and cement mortar lining spalling, material changes, leak locations, air pockets, the sealing status of valves, and cross connections. The technology enables the non‐invasive diagnosis of pipeline condition from a deployment distance of greater than 1 mile along a pipeline without disruption of current service and provides the identification of pipeline anomalies down to 30 ft increments along the pipe length. Detection Services has successfully deployed the technology on nearly 400 miles of critical infrastructure pipeline for more than 70 different pipeline systems in the Australian and New Zealand markets.

“Introduction of Detections Services’ non‐invasive pipe condition assessment to the U.S. and Canadian market will address the challenges faces by current technologies currently being employed,” said Shane Majetich, Manager, National Water Distribution System Services, Hydromax USA. “The introduction of non‐invasive p‐Cat technology will strike an effective balance between expensive invasive solutions, and other non‐invasive solutions lacking granular visibility.”
