Reduce water loss using advanced pressure management

i2O Advanced Pressure Management enables clients to remotely control and automatically optimise pressure across the entire network – at PRVs and pumping stations – to minimise water loss.  i2O’s dedicated patent-protected pilot valve and system control algorithms are designed specifically to optimise network pressure, without introducing burst-causing transients to the network. i2O offers a full range of control configurations including fixed downstream pressure, client-defined flow modulation, and automatic optimisation of critical point pressures including no-flow meter option.  All of these can be scheduled and mixed in a daily time profile that can be set infinitely into the future so that regular and irregular events can be anticipated.

i2O Advanced Pressure Valve

i2O Advanced Pressure Management will:

1

Reduce bursts and customer interruptions by 40% on average

2

Reduce water loss by 20% on average

3

Optimise pressure in the network 24/7/365

4

Reduced network transients to calm the network

5

Reduce energy and operational costs

6

Improve customer service

Features:

  • A wide range of interval and dialup configurations
  • A full set of alarm functions on all data channels
  • The controller gathers data that enables transient detection and PRV condition monitoring
  • The ability to determine the timeframe for pressure changes to introduce changes slowly and reduce customer complaints
  • Multiple failsafes
  • Easy to install Control Logger and Advanced Pilot Valve
  • Robust, reliable and easy to maintain – no transducer recalibration required during the lifetime of the product, batteries and SIMs can be exchanged in the field, field-upgradeable firmware, long warranty and low levels of returns
  • A wide range of communication options including 2G, 3G+2G, NB-IoT+2G, and internal/external antennas
  • External battery packs to extend device life and/or increase the frequency of communications
  • No need for an i2O logger at the critical point because our platform can ingest data from other manufacturer’s loggers

Options:

The system is available in two modes: Remote Control and Automatic Optimisation.

Remote Control:

  • You decide and set your control philosophy
  • Fixed outlet pressure can be precisely controlled with a minimum factor of safety
  • Schedule in advance for known variations: events, intermittent supply, low pressure during drought conditions
  • Implement a control curve that you have manually calculated

Automatic optimisation:

  • i2O algorithms determine the optimal control philosophy for PRVs and pumps to achieve your target pressure at the critical point
  • Automatically adjusted for flow-related headloss
  • Adapts to changes in demand including seasonal, cultural and population growth

Benefits:

Reduced leakage and bursts

i2O’s dedicated patent-protected pilot valve is designed specifically to reduce network pressure to minimum viable levels, without introducing burst-causing transients to the network

Reduced energy and operational costs

Energy costs are reduced directly where pump stations are optimised using Advanced pressure management, with savings of up to 60%

Improved customer service

Reduction in customer minutes lost owing to reduction in bursts, reduced pressures and smooth transitions

Increased asset life

Reduced stress on all network assets extends their life by an average of 5 years
