Pressure on water leaks

Published:  15 February, 2019

ABB reports it has launched a Lunch ‘n’ Learn training session that shows how water companies can use variable speed drives (VSDs) to make dramatic improvements in their leakage rates.

Topics covered include: how VSDs tackle common causes of leakage including elevated supply pressures and water hammer; the role of inbuilt VSD smart functions; the increasing use of cloud-based monitoring techniques in leakage prevention strategies; and how one ABB customer is set to save £4.5 million on repairs and energy costs by 2021 by using VSDs to maintain correct water pressure.

The 45-minute session, reducing leakage through the use of variable speed drives, is free to attend and can be delivered at customer premises or an ABB facility.
