Direct Relationship Between Transients and Wire Breaks

February 13, 2017
Event: Trenchless Technology Magazine
Speaker(s): Rasko Ojdrovic

This webinar addressed the issue that transient activity within water pipelines causes wire breaks in pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipelines (PCCP). The webinar also discussed how the cause of the transients can be determined and how, by avoiding the transients, owners can reduce wire breaks and reduce the risk of pipeline failure.

It featured case studies that show how high resolution pressure monitors can identify and locate the cause of damaging, previously undetected, transient activity.  It spelled out the benefits obtained from the remedial work consequently undertaken, which result in a reduction of breaks and in operating costs.
