Pressure management is considered the most important, beneficial, and cost-effective leakage management measure. It is the primary step for optimal management of water distribution systems for ensuring efficient and sufficient supply to registered users and consumers. It is a well-known fact that high pressure in the distribution system is one of the major factors which influence the leakage rate. Most of the pipe bursts happen not just due to high pressure but because of the ongoing pressure fluctuations which force the pipe to expand continuously and contract, which results in stress on infrastructure. So, it is important for reducing to a low constant pressure in the system.
Intelligent Control Valves are used for providing optimum flow and pressure conditions at any time. They maintain a certain flow, pressure, or level regardless of changes in the supply network and also helps to reduce water losses and contribute to the efficient water supply. This intelligent range of control valves is mounted with the ACMO PMD communication device which is a local controller that can offer a wide range of control applications in a SMART pressure management system. It features very accurate control and auto-adaptive PID in order to fit the valves for a multitude of different hydraulic conditions. With pre-configurable hydraulic control functions and features of data logging, the ACMO PMD is supplied. This helps the operator to preset conditions for pressure and flow. The unit will communicate with flow meter and adjust the pressure according to flow regardless of the time of the day. The intelligent control valves have been proven to reduce the leakage and burst frequency, which brings cost-effective and optimal pressure control to your network. It is also a vital tool for smart networks. Intelligent control valves can be used for a lot of applications like central air conditioning, water treatment, heating, and others. It is a set of pressure-independent products that are integrated with sensor technology, intelligent actuator, and control valve.How can these set of Intelligent Control Valves contribute to a smart network?
