Water Distribution System Leak Survey
Available from M.E. Simpson Company, Inc.
The Water Distribution Leak Survey program is conducted using state of the art leak computers:
Fluid Conservation Systems’DigiCALL / AC Digital Leak Correlator.
Vivax-Metrotech's HL6000X Correlator with an outstation preamplifier-transducer system.
Our experienced Project Team will use these devices, along with the FCS, S30, orL-MIC (electronically enhanced listening device), to survey the pipeline network.
Correlator’s are microprocessor units that measure the time it takes the sound of the leak to travel from (A) the leak to (B) the point where the leak detection correlator is connected to the water line. By connecting the leak correlator out stations to the water line at two locations bracketing the suspected leak, the correlator analyzes the time delay difference between the sound waves received at each outstation, thus giving the distance from the leak to each connection point enabling us to determine the exact leak location.
