Sewer corrosion can severely limit the lifetime of assets and costs millions to repair. Assets can fail well before the expected life of the equipment and costly manual inspection methods can only cover a small fraction of the network each year.
The cost of replacement and maintenance for unexpected issues can be in the millions. Odor issues in the network can be highly disruptive and understanding and managing safety issues related to sulfide and methane generation is a critical issue to most water utilities.
Envirosuite’s Sewex is a software platform that maps and visualizes physical, chemical and biological processes in sewers. It has been developed over many years by some the world’s leading wastewater experts.
SeweX software has been designed to identify the areas within a sewer network at high risk of increased levels of corrosion and odor production. Envirosuite will build on the existing SeweX model and integrate it into the existing software platform.
SeweX aims to materially reduce core operating and capital costs for network operators through predictive identification of corrosion and odor-risk priority areas enabling optimization of chemical dosing for in-sewer sulphide control.
