Bringing pressure under control: Updating existing components for intelligent water networks

03 October 2018

In today’s water industry, the ability to meet performance targets is a huge priority. The question is, how to achieve this in a timely and cost-effective manner?

Water companies might be inclined to look to new technologies for a solution. However, efficiencies can in fact be achieved with minimum investment by taking a fresh look at existing products and technologies that are already in use, but not necessarily to their full potential. 

By harnessing the capabilities of common-place components, it is possible to achieve quick and simple improvements in network efficiency and reduction in non-revenue water, without needing to invest in innovative, yet expensive, ‘smart-tech’ systems.

A fresh approach 

Combining traditional components with modern innovations has the potential to make an immediate impact, without the need for major investment or disruption. 

Take control valves, for example. Based on an elegant and original design that is now over 80 years old, they provide a low-cost and efficient way for water companies to manage water pressure, levels and flow rate.
