Water Extraction Reel

Stock Code: 8002-810

Requirement

In order to reduce gas leakage, gas management teams have reduced gas network pressures. This, however, has created another issue. In areas where there is a high-water table, there has been an increase in instances where water enters the gas network.

As water is difficult to remove, gas companies require a device to not only find water, but also to extract it.


Case Study

In a single financial year, one utility company reported an approximate £1.2m of operational costs relating to resolving water ingress concerns associated within the low-pressure network. As a result of the interruptions to supplies, a further £232k was spent on compensation as a direct result of water ingress. These figures do not include the cost of first response to investigate reported incidents, or larger incidents which will have a ‘cost collect’ project code assigned to them.


Concept

This equipment consists of a water extraction reel, which works in conjunction with a camera inspection system. The equipment allows the simultaneous insertion of both the camera and a water extraction hose, enabling the identification and removal of water by a vacuum pump from the live gas network in one operation.
