|Patent application number||Title||Published|
|20150301534||PIPELINE SYSTEM FOR FLUIDS - The invention provides method and system of controlling flow rate in a pipeline network for fluids. The system includes a demand management system to monitor fluid flow rate in the pipeline network (||10-22-2015|
|20150241256||FLOW METER WITH ACOUSTIC ARRAY - The present invention provides a flow meter for a pipe or open channel. The flow meter has a longitudinal member adapted to be inserted into the pipe or open channel but free of any internal wall of the pipe or open channel. The longitudinal member has a plurality of pairs of acoustic transducers located there around therearound, with each pair of acoustic transducers having a transmitting transducer and a receiving transducer. The transmitting transducer sends an acoustic signal to an internal wall of the pipe or open channel and the receiving transducer receives the reflected acoustic signal.||08-27-2015|
|20150191884||CONTROL GATES AND VALVES - The invention discloses an overshot control gate for use with trapezoidal irrigation channels. A gate has a rigid rectangular section adapted to, in use, be pivotally mounted to a base of a trapezoidal irrigation channel. A pair of triangular sections are pivotally mounted on opposite sides of the rigid rectangular section. Each of the triangular sections are divided into first and second triangular sections with a common apex at the base of the trapezoidal irrigation channel. Each of the first triangular sections are rigid and adapted to, in use, be pivotally mounted to opposite side walls of the trapezoidal irrigation channel. Each of the second triangular sections including the pivotal mounting on opposite sides of the rigid rectangular section are formed of a flexible material. Also disclosed is a pipe flow meter and a duckbill valve.||07-09-2015|
|20150143917||SILT CONTROL IN FLUID NETWORKS - The invention relates to a method of detecting a buildup of silt in a pipe or open channel of a fluid flow network. The pipe or open channel has a system with at least one set of velocity sensors to measure flow velocities at predetermined horizontal levels. The method includes the steps of computing flow using measured flow velocities and cross-sectional areas for each flow layer, summing the flows to provide a total flow, monitoring the measured flow velocities and storing the measured flow velocities to detect any ongoing reduction in flow velocity of at least a lowermost velocity sensor to provide an indication of a buildup of silt in the pipe or open channel.||05-28-2015|
|20150082911||FLOW METER ASSEMBLY, GATE ASSEMBLIES AND METHODS OF FLOW MEASUREMENT - The present invention provides an acoustic flow meter assembly (||03-26-2015|
|20150057815||SUPERVISORY CONTROL OF AUTOMATED IRRIGATION CHANNELS - A method of delivery of fluid through a computer controlled fluid network, the network including: regulators to control the flow of fluid to deliver a predetermined amount thereof to at least one customer; a first control system for opening and closing the regulators, which collects data based on timed measurements of fluid levels upstream and downstream of respective regulators and the opening positions of respective regulators, using data analysis to provide models for prediction of fluid levels between regulators; a second control system that is a supervisory layer interacting with the first control system to provide adjustments to the controlling of the regulators based on constraint and future flow load; and a third control system interacting with the first and second control systems, which processes fluid delivery requests from the at least one customer to provide a flow load delivery schedule based on the hydraulic capacity of the network.||02-26-2015|
|20140379143||DEMAND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR FLUID NETWORKS - The invention provides a method of demand management for fluid networks. The method includes the steps of providing a computer controlled fluid network for delivery of fluid to at least one customer (||12-25-2014|
