Echologics EchoShore-DX

EchoShore-DX nodes turn fire hydrants into a smart water network for leak detection. The nodes incorporate the latest generation of acoustic sensors that are the result of Echologics pioneering success with correlating leaks on a variety of pipe materials. The sensors are built into a standard fire hydrant cap and are capable of identifying and monitoring faint acoustical noises emitted by leaks before they become detectable by conventional methods, resulting water loss reduction and customer service improvement.

Electro Scan Multi-Sensor Leak Detection

Electro Scan’s multi-sensor water leak detection probe features its patent pending low voltage conductivity technology to locate and quantify leaks – in gallons per minute – by measuring each point that electrical current is able to escape from the pipe wall.  Additional technologies include a CCTV camera, pressure sensor, and acoustic hydrophone. This 4-in-1 leak detection solution for pressurized water mains represents the first reliable and repeatable holistic leak detection service, available exclusively from Electro Scan.

Hydromax USA Satellite Leak Detection

Hydromax USA Satellite Leak Detection

Hydromax USA Satellite Leak Detection

Hydromax USA and Utilis LTD bring water utilities proven satellite scanning technology to accurately find leaks within their water infrastructure, without the time and manpower of field-based acoustic surveys. Using the same satellite technology to look for water on other planets, Hydromax clients can locate network water loss over thousands of square kilometers — all through aerial scans from space. This solution can accurately pinpoint leaks within a 30- to 100-ft radius, saving significant labor costs compared to today’s current leak detection technology.


Itron Leak Sensor

Itron Leak Sensor

Itron’s leak sensor, part of the OpenWay Riva solution, provides acoustic leak detection to help utilities identify leaks before they become a major problem, reducing waste and cost long-term. Strategically placed sensors analyze sound patterns to detect new and existing leaks and send the data directly to the utility, making sure they are aware of even the smallest leaks automatically.


Matchpoint Enigma3m GPRS

Matchpoint Enigma3m GPRS

Water asset management can be a daunting task. Matchpoint has the key to simplifying it – the Enigma3m GPRS, acoustic noise logging system. Easily deployed, this mastermind combines localization and accurate, time-synced correlation technologies to validate the integrity of the distribution system, transmitting data remotely to your viewing device. If leakage is evident, the loggers will automatically pinpoint the leak’s exact location. The result? Instantaneous, meaningful and actionable data for preventing catastrophic events.
