Transient Technology for non-Invasive Pipe Condition Assessment POWER HOUR Webinar ( New Pipeline Condition Assessment Technology) 



LIVE DATE: 05/24/17
CEU TYPE: Technical
IEPA#: 11179
IDEM#Applied for


17 years in the making, and recently patented in the U.S., Hydromax USA presents the p-CATâ„¢ for pipe condition assessment.  Mr. Schumi will present a new advanced technology utilizing transient pressure waves to provide non-invasive pipe condition assessment at resolutions not achievable through current acoustic methods.  The p-Cat employs an advanced technique that uses fluid transient pressure waves for detecting the sizes and locations of pipeline defects including corrosion and cement mortar lining spalling, material changes, leak locations, air pockets, the sealing status of valves, and cross connections over long sections of pipeline.  Pressure transducers record variations in pressure and through developed mathematical algorithms, based on modelling of fluid transients, the size and location of the defects can be detected. 


The technology enables the non-invasive diagnosis of pipeline condition from a deployment distance of greater than 1 mile along a pipeline without disruption of current service and provides the identification of pipeline anomalies down to 30 foot increments along the pipe length. The introduction of non-invasive p-Cattm technology to the North American Municipal markets provides an effective balance between current invasive solutions, and acoustic non-invasive solutions lacking granular visibility.  



Paul Schumi currently serves as Hydromax USA's Business Development Manager. He has over 12 years of experience in water and wastewater infrastructure condition assessment programs impacting hundreds of thousands of water systems assets. Mr. Schumi has provided expertise in the assessment of aging water and wastewater infrastructure across the U.S., including recent projects in St. Louis MO, Austin TX, Kansas City KS, and many other communities. He is an active member of the AWWA and participates on numerous committees including the National AWWA Asset Management Committee.
