Smart monitoring company Orbis Intelligent Systems has announced a new distributor: AV Water Technologies (AVWT). AVWT is a distributor of advanced systems to the water utility market, providing innovative and smart technologies. The company will be supplying the Orbis SmartCap in Southern and Central US, covering Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas.
The SmartCap is an intelligent fire hydrant and pipe monitoring device that enables remote leak detection by providing real-time data from a multi-sensor. In early 2022, the device helped a Southeastern water utility find a leak that had been running for 15 months. The SmartCap pinpointed the leak within three days of deployment, bringing significant water and cost savings.
Ross Thomson, AV Water Technologies president, said: “As a distributor of advanced water technologies, AV Water Technologies is pleased to be working in partnership with Orbis Intelligent Systems to provide the innovative SmartCap to water utilities.
“The partnership will help water providers across the Southern and Central US quickly pinpoint leaks on their networks, reducing non-revenue water loss and saving precious supplies.”
Lou Rossetti, Orbis senior vice president of sales, North America, said: “Orbis’s new partnership with AV Water Technologies is fantastic news for both companies, as well as for water utilities in Southern and Central US.
“We are very much aligned in our mission to deliver smart water technologies. The wider distribution our SmartCap will create great value for both businesses and support municipalities in their critical role of delivering safe and reliable water services.”
Orbis Intelligent Systems is committed to delivering smart technologies that support utilities and municipalities in delivering safe and reliable water services. Its technologies create real-time data on pipeline infrastructure, providing vital insights into how to optimise water networks for maximum efficiency.
