LYDEC, CASABLANCA: IDROLOC

LYDEC, CASABLANCA: IDROLOC

Lydec, a public utility company in Casablanca, required an effective system to locate possible leaks in the drinking water supply network of the city.
Traditional methods were identified as inefficient due to the characteristics of the city’s water network.

iDROLOC was recognised as the ideal solution for the pipeline network and its complexities, due to its simple and effective method of detection, designed specifically for this purpose. The project lasted 10 days, with 4 leaks detected in the 7km section of the network. The repair of the leaks is expected to save 790 million litres of water per year.

EMATSA, TARRAGONA: iDROLOC

EMATSA, TARRAGONA: iDROLOC

In early summer 2013, EMATSA planned to locate a leak in a 500-metre-long water pipeline running under the Avenida Roma in Tarragona, one of the city’s busiest roads.

The work, which took three days and found the leak, would have more complicated using conventional acoustic leak detection methods, given the noise levels generated by traffic on the avenue. Once the leak was repaired, the section of the city’s network could be used again after a long period of disuse.

UTILITY SERVICE GROUP, DETROIT iDROLOC

UTILITY SERVICE GROUP, DETROIT iDROLOC

The American subsidiary of Aqualogy, USG, used the iDROLOC leak detection system in a project in the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department network to find three leaks in a section of cast iron pipe 1,200 mm in diameter. Two helium injections were required, one using a lance and the other using hydrants, as access to the pipe was impossible.

The USG-Aqualogy team inspected the 3km route of the pipeline, running under both earth and asphalt, for 3 days and found two seals that had worn out and were leaking, in addition to a major leak that was running into the sewerage network.

This action highlights the versatility of Aqualogy’s iDROLOC system, which can be used in all types of land and with all types and diameters of pipe.

CLIMAESPACO, LISBON iDROLOC

CLIMAESPACO, LISBON iDROLOC

Here, iDROLOC faced a new challenge: the detection of leaks in hot and cold water networks. The company Climaespaço wanted to locate leaks in its cold water distribution networks that could not be detected with traditional methods. Acoustic leak detection systems are not effective with these pipes as, like hot water pipes, their strong thermal insulation prevents heat dissipation.

The iDROLOC system found a leak that was losing 95 m³/day in one of the main pipes used to cool buildings. Following the injection of helium gas into the network, the leak was precisely detected in a pipe 300 mm in diameter and at a depth of 4.5m.

Aqualogy was able to use the iDROLOC robot in this operation despite the difficulty of dissolving gases in such adverse conditions. This action shows the adaptability and efficiency in meeting the toughest challenges in the industrial sector.

SOCIETE DE L’EAU ET DE L’ASSAINISSEMENT, ORAN: iDROLOC

SOCIETE DE L’EAU ET DE L’ASSAINISSEMENT, ORAN: iDROLOC

iDROLOC was used in the Oran drinking water supply network, managed by Sociéte de l'Eau et de l'Assainissement (SEOR) in a project in early summer 2013.

There were two areas of focus and the results for both were equally successful. During the first phase iDROLOC was used in the network’s largest and least accessible networks: 300mm to 1,000mm diameter pipes running alongside some of Oran’s busiest and noisiest streets. The second phase involved leak detection in a low-pressure zone with PVC/PE pipes of 50mm in diameter.

A total of 56 leaks was detected in the distribution (approximately 12 km) and transport (7 km) networks.

NETWORK CLEANING

Aqualogy offer a highly effective and low risk pipe line cleaning technology, Ice Pigging, which cleans the inside of pipes using a thick ice slurry. The service is offered as an alternative to conventional pipeline-pigging and other pipeline cleaning techniques. Ice Pigging has been widely adopted across the water industry in many countries and can be used to clean raw water mains and pumped sewers.

Ice Pigging technology is based on harnessing the complex properties and unparalleled benefits of thick ice slurries. Semi-solid ice can be applied uniquely because it is both pumpable like a liquid, but also takes on properties of a solid when a ‘pig’ of ice is formed within a pipe. Ice Pigging is a highly effective and exceptionally low risk method of removing sediment, biofilm and other objects.
