Partnership between Echologics and BAYARD
During the Pollutec exhibition, a strategic and exclusive partnership was signed between Echologics and BAYARD, the French subsidiary of TALIS, on leak detection. Echologics is a world leader in leak detection and is a subsidiary of Mueller Water company, the undisputed fire hydrant leader in North America. Under the management of Assaf Bassi (TALIS Smart Solutions Director) and with the work of the R&D team of BAYARD and Echologics, a technical solution has been created to detect leaks from fire hydrants in water networks.
The solution features an accelerometer located inside the hydrant which listens to the acoustic signal of the water, the signal is sent to a server on the internet cloud which is analyzed by a sophisticated algorithm to identify and isolate the noise of the leak. The customer is informed of the leak and the position of it thanks to the smart geocorrelation system. Compared to the other existing solutions on the market, we at TALIS designed an integrated solution inside our hydrants as a package. Our engineers using advanced technologies and flame of innovation to create enough space inside existing and new hydrants for our new leak detection system.
We are convinced that we have an excellent combination with ease of installation, price of the system, quality of leak detection and communication capabilities using the hydrant as an antenna. At TALIS we do not only think about the future, but we also commit to support the past. This system is designed as a retrofit for any TALIS BAYARD hydrant installed since 1971.
