Sharing a stand with its parent company Mueller, Echologics will be showcasing its latest leak detection technology at WEFTEC 2017.

The company has recently released a cellular version of the EchoShore-DX fixed leak detection node. The new product is designed to allow utilities to quickly deploy nodes using their existing cellular communications provider. According to Echologics, this enhancement to the xed leak detection node increases the areas and applications where the technology can be applied, from targeted deployments in zones with high leakage or recurring water main breaks to city-wide implementation.

EchoShore-DX nodes provide utilities with daily reporting on the development of any leaks in the system, allowing leak repairs to be prioritised.


 On 30 September the water industry will head to Chicago, Illinois’ McCormick Place for WEFTEC 2017.
