Overview

Whether it be rapidly increasing water consumption or leakages caused by material ageing or illegal tapping – both effect the efficiency and security of drinking water supply. This results in permanently rising energy costs, for example when pump capacities are increased to compensate for pressure loss due to leaks. Safe and efficient water distribution therefore requires smart management of water distribution networks.

For a sustainable and state-of-the-art drinking water management, KROHNE offers a tailored energy self-sufficient measurement solution. The solution consists of a water meter with integrated temperature and pressure measurement as well as a data logger with GSM module for remote data transfer. The battery-powered solution is designed for use in remote and difficult to access areas without power supply that are also prone to flooding. Sealing options and a software menu lock provide protection against manipulation or unauthorized access.

The solution enables water utilities and water network operators to create consumption profiles so as to monitor daily and nightly water consumption based on flow measurement. In this way, water storage and pump capacities can be planned ahead. By evaluating consumption and pressure profiles, redundant leakage detection becomes also possible. Consistent water loss and continuously high energy costs for increased pump capacities can be effectively prevented. Security of water supply is increasing.
