MEASUREMENT ON WATER SUPPLY SYSTEMS
If there is a significant percentage of losses on the system in terms of non-revenue water made up of several aspects, they are the driver of all other financial losses. Loss means the need for increased water production, which emphasizes the greater amount of electricity consumed, higher maintenance costs, increased costs in the process of purification or production of drinking water.
In a comprehensive analysis, the basic and starting point is, as Leonardo da Vinci once said, "Before any work, first take a measurement." In order to be able to realistically see the situation on one water supply system, it is necessary, in addition to the number of consumers, to know the basic parameters of water supply, the amount of delivered water, as well as minimum and maximum pressures in all altitude supply zones.
In addition to consulting services that include condition analysis, loss reduction plans, network zoning, our team is at your disposal for comprehensive measurements on your plumbing systems. With the equipment of renowned manufacturers that guarantee accuracy in measurement, if necessary and to the extent, we can perform:
- Water flow measurement on pipelines and installations
- Measurement of flow and temperature on hot water pipes
- Pressure measurement on pipelines and connections
- Measurement of noise on pipelines
- Tracing of metal and non-metal pipes and installations
Flow measurement, in addition to already existing measuring points, can also be performed at temporary measuring points that are determined for the purpose of more comprehensive measurement, ie measurement of DMA zones and their subzones. Of course, measurements can also be performed in pumping plants and reservoirs, with certain conditions that need to be met in order for the accuracy of the measurement to be as precise as possible, ie within the allowed tolerance.
Flow measurement on hot water pipes is performed with probes for hot water pipes, which are certified for temperatures over 125 °C, as well as temperature measurement with probes for hot water pipes.
Pressure measurement can be performed on underground as well as above-ground hydrants on pipelines, as well as on plumbing installations of various profiles. The pressure measurement range ranges from 0.00 bar to 30.00 bar.
All these measurements can be performed at various measurement intervals from 1 sec to 1 h, all according to customer requirements or project needs. The memory capacities of measuring instruments are large and meet the needs of storing measured data continuously for up to a month of measurement with a minimum interval of 1 sec.
Pressure measurement for 24 hours at any location, with creation of a certified report Elaborate measurements, we provide as a service to all consulting and design bureaus. The preparation of the Elaborate, which contains a sketch of the location of the pressure logger measurement site, as well as a diagram of 24-hour pressure measurement and a table of average pressure values, is carried out for the purposes of obtaining urban-technical conditions for the construction of residential and commercial buildings, i.e. for the calculation of fire sprinkler systems (Fire sprinkler system).
Noise measurements on pipelines and installations are performed in order to obtain a clearer picture of the state of the water supply network where the meters are installed. Therefore, the basis of these measurements is to look at the condition in a very fast and efficient way and determine potential fault locations based on the recorded noise.
For all performed measurements, a diagram, tabular overview or software presentation of the obtained results is performed. If necessary, ie according to the contractual obligations based on the Project, a more detailed analysis of measurement results is performed and based on it, the following steps are determined in terms of inspection and control of the network, and research of losses in the water supply system.
