What Does It Mean to ‘Calm’ a Water Network?

As a result of factors like fatigue and stress, joints and fittings on the pipeline experience leaks. In the case of pipeline wall failures, they may also experience thinning due to these same factors.

Although a multitude of factors may lead to stress on the pipeline, ‘pressure transients’ is the one we’re concentrating on for this blog. Transients are temporary waves of pressure that can cause quick pressure changes in pipelines. As pipeline fatigue increases the infrastructure becomes weaker, these can serve as a precursor to eventual leaks and breaks that cause pipeline transient activity.

The operating behavior can be modified to calm the water network if transient detection and identification take place. With effective monitoring software, water network calming can be done to identify transients and take the appropriate action to alleviate the cause.

Through tracking and providing guidance to improve network behavior, the Syrinix strategy focuses on defining and eliminating the cause of pressure transients. Syrinix’s suite of PIPEMINDER technologies helps you to take an aggressive approach to a possible challenge, with financial, environmental, and reputational gains being the result, substituting the fear of the unpredictable with actionable solution-oriented data and configurable warnings.
