Measuring and optimising pressure creates great advantages
The general pressure and the number of pressure shocks in your distribution network affect both the energy consumption for pumping the water as well as the number of leaks and bursts. There is a clear correlation between the maximum pressure and the number of pipe bursts. Despite this, knowledge about pressure is often limited to information about the extraction pressure combined with sporadic measurements.
With a READy network and a number of Kamstrup PressureSensors, you can gather information about the pressure in your distribution network and gain valuable knowledge about the potential for optimising the pressure.
Often, it will be possible – either in certain periods of time or permanently - to lower the general pressure in the network, thus creating tangible advantages in the form of lower operation and energy expenses as well as a distinct decrease in water waste. By minimizing the pressure and reducing the number of pressure shocks in the network, the general stress on the distribution network is reduced, extending the lifetime of the components.
