As fluid as water
Water is a primary resource, a fundamental need for life. Good water governance is a strategic responsibility from every point of view: institutional, environmental, economic. Increasing the efficiency of the network to avoid waste and optimize the management of this renewable but not infinite resource, is a responsibility towards the planet and, not least, an economically profitable choice.
The goal is to move the water sector towards process automation through the digitalization of networks, thus achieving a better optimization of resources, investments and data management, with a business advantage for companies but also a social advantage for the communities.
Digitalizing the water cycle
Within the water cycle coexist a wide number of different and complex systems, requiring thousands of control points and simple installations of valves or sensors, characterized by a limited but important number of signals. Therefore, automation tools (PLC, SCADA, DCS) and remote-control systems need to be fully integrated for an effective service management.
The application of IoT technology enables the strategic management of the water cycle thanks to widespread diffusion of sensors and a large-scale availability of information accessible from cloud.
Pietro Fiorentini Group integrated end-to-end water solutions
The Pietro Fiorentini Group offers hardware and software solutions for the complete control of water networks at every stage of the process, avoiding the problems of overlap and integration that arise from having to rely on different partners, but also flexible in offering specific solutions for specific needs. Products and services are synergically integrated with each other, thus increasing performance and efficiency to the complete benefit of the customer.
Ultrasonic smart water meters
Water meters measure the volume of water used by final users that are supplied with water by a public water supply system. They are also used to determine flow through a specific portion of the cycle. Water metering is a component of public water resource management aimed at monitoring and eventually reducing water consumption.
Nowadays, mechanical meters are still installed on the majority of water networks. But in today’s digital world, ultrasonic smart water meters represent a choice with numerous advantages:
- higher precision
- reduced risk of misreading
- remote reading capability
- higher lifetime
- efficient detection of leaks, bursts, reverse flows etc.
Ultrasonic water meters produced by Pietro Fiorentini have more than thirteen years of battery life, are available with nominal diameter between DN 15 and DN 25 and with different communication technologies: 2/4/5G, NbIot, LoraWAN.
