South Staffs adopts new technology to meet leakage challenge
South Staffs is targeting a 25 per cent leakage reduction in AMP7, while its subsidiary Cambridge Water is targeting a 15 per cent reduction, and the company said: “We are starting to use an innovative, sector-leading approach to fix leaks without the need to pinpoint their exact location or dig up roads.”
HydroSEAL is a new technology that enables leaks in water distribution pipes to be sealed from the inside by inserting a gel-based carrier fluid and repair material, which is moved by the flow of water through the pipe.
When a leak is detected, a chemical reaction enables the repair material to instantaneously stop the water loss and then harden. The remaining gel-based carrier fluid is then removed from the pipe under controlled conditions and the pipes are flushed to ensure water quality is maintained.
HydroSEAL will repair all types and sizes of leaks in a single application and can be applied to a range of pipe diameters and service pipes.
