Many water networks have been in the ground a very long time and large stretches of the mains are reaching the end of their service life. The capital expenditure required to replace these mains is simply unaffordable for most water companies. It is therefore imperative to find ways of extending the life of the mains.
Water networks spend much of the time at pressures that are higher than necessary. Pipes reaching the end of their service life are particularly sensitive to pressure and a small reduction in peak pressure can have a significant reduction in burst rate. Bringing the burst rate down can enable pipes to stay in the ground longer, thereby deferring capital expenditure.
i2O’s Advanced Pressure Management solution reduces the strain on a water network’s infrastructure by reducing peak pressures, and ensuring slow and smooth changes in pressure. This reduces the burst rate on pipes extending their operating life significantly.
Our CTO Andrew Burrows describes how i2O’s solutions help water companies extend the lifetime of their infrastructure:
Advanced Pressure Management from i2O has helped water companies to extend the lifetime of their pipes. As a result, customers can defer some of their capital expenditures.
Many water companies around the world have used i2O solutions to extend the life of their water network infrastructure. Read some of their stories.
