ATLANTA, GA– Echologics, LLC today announced the launch of its latest service, ePulse® Optimize™ condition assessment service, designed to help water utilities assess the condition of their distribution systems and identify potential issues before they become major problems. The ePulse Optimize condition assessment service is a non-invasive and cost-effective solution that enables water utilities to prioritize repair and replacement of assets in their distribution systems, proactively managing the risk of infrastructure damage, supply interruption and inefficient allocation of capital funds.
The ePulse Optimize condition assessment service is a new addition to the ePulse product line, which utilities have trusted over the past decade. ePulse Optimize condition assessment service can provide condition information for shorter segments of buried pressurized pipeline than previously obtainable without compromising on the cost or risk associated with your assessment.
The ePulse Optimize condition assessment service uses acoustic wave analysis to assess the condition of water mains and distribution systems. The Echologics team of GIS and data scientists and acoustic signal processing experts have combined extensive industry knowledge with the latest industry standards, acoustic science and automation to produce highly accurate pipe wall measurements. As an added benefit, the ePulse Optimize condition assessment service simultaneously pinpoints leaks to provide a comprehensive picture of overall asset health and condition. This data-driven approach provides asset managers valuable insights to assess risk and make informed decisions about maintenance, rehabilitation, and replacement programs.
“The ePulse Optimize condition assessment service is a powerful tool for water utilities looking to assess the condition of their distribution systems,” said Tim Ruhl, Product Line Leader, Asset Management & Capital Planning. “By providing detailed and accurate asset information, the ePulse Optimize condition assessment service allows utilities to identify their at-risk assets, prioritize capital projects, and stretch their investment dollars.”
The ePulse Optimize condition assessment service is easy to deploy and can be used to assess the condition of a range of pipe materials and sizes. The service is non-invasive and does not require excavation work or system shutdowns, minimizing disruption to water utilities and their customers.
“We are excited to bring the ePulse Optimize condition assessment service to market and help water utilities assess the condition of their distribution systems,” added Tim Ruhl. “This service is part of our ongoing commitment to innovation and providing our customers with the most advanced tools and technologies to support their operations.”
