Session #2: Remote Pressure Monitoring – Eliminating your Water Distribution Network Blindspot
Expires Wed.Feb 17,2021.
Clow Canada entered the Smart Infrastructure technology market when its parent company acquired Nighthawk Control in 2012. Widely-used across the country, the M67 McAvity fire hydrant has been made in Canada since 1903 and is now available with optional leading-edge sensor technology installed at the Clow Canada factory or as a field retrofit kit for existing M67 McAvity hydrants. Utilities receiving real-time actionable iHydrantTM watermain data measurements can minimize the volume of water lost during main break events, proactively prevent some potential main breaks, extend watermain asset life and advance their municipality a step closer to Net Zero carbon emissions. This webinar will review this new technology and the challenges facing various watermain monitoring and leak detection methods.
At the completion of this one-hour OJT session, participants will be able to demonstrate the following:
- What is remote watermain pressure monitoring?
- What are the challenges associated with watermain pressure monitoring?
- What are the different types of non-revenue water loss?
- An understanding of different leak detection methods
- How to retrofit an existing M67 McAvity hydrant and add iHydrantTM sensor technology
