Echologics Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP) Condition Assessment

Article | Jan 30, 2017

REDUCE THE COST OF PCCP ASSESSMENT PROGRAMS

Assessing and monitoring the condition of large diameter prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) is an important and challenging task. Water providers want solutions delivering the accuracy of complex electromagnetic (EM) and internal survey methods but without the operational challenges, limitations, and cost. The Echologics ePulse® condition assessment technology uses non-invasive and non-intrusive acoustic wave propagation (AWP) to identify sections of pipeline with reduced structural stiffness, and estimate the average remaining structural strength or wall thickness.[...]

How to Rapidly Reduce NRW Levels

To deal with NRW effectively, it is crucial to know where the losses are occurring and how much water is lost. The most common approach to tackle water loss involves establishing District Metered Areas (DMAs) to conduct flow balancing, where the difference between the volume of water entering the zone and the actual consumption is identified. From this, the level of NRW and leakage can be determined. [...]

Sustainable Water Infrastructure Management (SWIM) – ePulse Pilot Study for Metallic Main Inspection

Echologics was contracted by GHD to survey approximately 17,500 feet of distribution mains for Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC). This pilot project was initiated to fulfill three main objectives – 1) Calibrate the developed Asset Management (AM) desktop model, 2) Ascertain the criticality of the pipes scheduled for replacement based on the predictions of the asset management model, and 3) Evaluate the Echologics proprietary acoustic condition assessment technology. A comprehensive test protocol was established for this pilot project.[...]
