Chesterfield, U.K. — (METERING.COM) — August 14, 2007 – A new ‘intelligent’ meter-based package for water companies to help identify and accurately quantify supply pipe leakage has been introduced by water and wastewater treatment solution supplier Severn Trent Services.
The SmartMeter™ C100R intelligent concentric water meter package was designed by seven water companies specifically to meet the detailed requirements of the UK water industry. The package comprises the SmartMeter C100R intelligent concentric water meter, radio receiver device, handheld computer with charger and docking station, data analysis software package and spread sheet-based data analysis software. In addition, the package comes with advice on property selection as well as repair and replacement strategies and information on issues such as planning and meter installation programmes and leakage analysis.
The C100R offers consumption monitoring at one-minute intervals for high resolution leakage analysis, rapid collection of data via radio link and “walk-by” reading for economic and frequent data collection, leakage start time, rate and duration recorded to allow the determination of leak location to facilitate repairs, and high resolution data.
The SmartMetering technology also provides sustainable accuracy through the meter’s life, with no lost revenue due to progressive meter inaccuracies.
