Locator™ software works with LEAKNET™ to quickly and accurately determine the location of leaks using an expansion wave, propagation time technique. Data resolution is enhanced by weighted interpolation. Location accuracy is enhanced by statistical filtering, heuristic response characterization, and pattern recognition.

A measurement is required at each end of a monitored line section. Recommended maximum section length is 25-35 miles (40-56 km). Longer sections (over 100 miles) can be monitored when reduced sensitivity is acceptable.

Locator uses the same measurements as PPA which may be pressure, flow, or a combination. Best results are obtained when the same measurement type and instruments are used at each end.

Location is determined within minutes of detection at both ends. You may begin shutting in as soon as the leak is detected at both ends.
