CRALEY Group is pleased to announce that they will be exhibiting their innovative iSM Leak Detection and Asset Security solution and their Atlantis Hydrotec® solution to deploy fibre optics through the existing water pipes at the upcoming WEFTEC event in Chicago.
Integrated Smart Monitoring (iSM™) is a technology application that can be overlaid onto an Atlantis Hydrotec® installation of fibre optic cable within a water pipeline to add significant value and benefit to water companies and owners of pipelines.
Atlantis Hydrotec® from CRALEY Group allows the highly cost-effective deployment of fibre optics using a patented ‘pipe-in-a-pipe’ technology which utilises existing water mains infrastructure to act as a conduit for the ultimate deployment of fibre optic communication cables.
iSM™ uses a sensing cable inserted within an Atlantis Hydrotec® installation to act as an extremely sensitive real-time activity monitor within the pipeline. This sensor has the ability to identify specific events, such as a leak, along the pipe infrastructure and identify the location of the event to within a few metres.
iSM™ uses an in-pipe sensing cable for pipeline monitoring and intruder security to deliver rapid and highly accurate information on pipe integrity and intruder threat detection. The technology combines the capture and analytic capabilities of a primary Analyser unit with advanced software algorithms to process the collected data to deliver:
Highly accurate location of leak events in real-time 24/7 365
Rapid identification and alerts – for the economic protection of thousands of kilometres of pipeline
Ensuring repairs can be facilitated before a situation becomes critical
Dramatic cost savings for repairs, and improvements in service continuity to customers
Asset intrusion detection
Accurate in-ground pipe location
