We were pleased recently to welcome Irish Water and Severn Trent Water to our Head Office in Cwmbran, South Wales, for product training using our advanced indoor test rig. Using the test rig, our guests were able to simulate a variety of different network conditions to learn how to manage them using our Pegasus+ system.
The test rig, which was developed to meet our own specifications, is built in three parts and allows the replication of a variety of network conditions. Our team of engineers and technical specialists use the testing rig to support development of new technologies and to test upgrades of current products.
The rig can also be used for training our customers on all types of monitoring devices such as Flow, Pressure, Pressure Controllers, Acoustic Monitoring, Insertion Flow monitoring. This complements our existing outside test site for leakage detection training where best practice Correlation and Acoustic Sounding techniques can be refined for the user.
The rig boasts a scaled-down clean water network that replicates the transfer of water from a reservoir to a district metered area (DMA) and back, which is used to develop and test pressure monitoring solutions. Included in this network is examples of a variety of different valves, allowing us to test and refine the effectiveness of our products on each. The rig also contains a Tilting Flume which is designed to mimic waste water flow in both sewer and open channels.
A water tank has also been included in the test rig to support the development of level, depth and float switch technologies.
If you’re interested in undertaking product training with our test rig please contact your sales representative or call Head Office on +44 (0) 1633 489479.
