company overview
Company Overview
  • A world leading provider of computerized controllers for:

Home Gardening

Professional Gardening



  • Waterworks
    • Products and systems to enable utilities to effectively control and manage water networks, reduce water and revenue loss from leakage
  • Distributed in over 40 countries worldwide
    • Renowned for quality, user friendly and well designed environmentally-friendly water saving systems
basic methods of managing real loses
Basic Methods of Managing Real Loses





Real Loses



Real Loses

Speed and

Quality of Repairs

Active Leakage


Pipeline and Asset Management:

Selection, installation, Maintenance, renewal, Replacement

**The methodology was developed by WLTF (Water Lost Task Force) of the International Water Association (IWA)

how pressure management works s
How Pressure Management Workss
  • Utilities provide water at high pressure
    • Service level everywhere all the time
  • High pressure = More loss
    • More water from leaks: $10B USD
    • High pressure causes more bursts
  • Target: Reduce pressure while providing quality service
    • Based on DMAs
    • Monitor pressure of critical point (P3)
    • Control pressure at DMA entry so that P3 is at the required level
    • Requires ability to constantly monitor and control pressure and flow
dynamic pressure management
Dynamic Pressure Management
  • Advantages
    • Deals with all leaks - undetectable and detectable
    • Fast ROI – optimized results
    • Quick to implement
    • Immediate measurable results – up to 50% reduction in leaks
    • Long time benefits: burst reduction, lower maintenance
    • Cheaper than other methods
    • Provides critical information to Improve operations
    • Independent of other methods

Galcon Dynamic Pressure Management System
  • G-DPM is an Intelligent DMA and Dynamic Pressure Management solution to significantly reduce water and revenue loss from leakage
    • Unique capabilities
      • Combining IT and Control
      • Centralized management and optimization
        • System level considerations can be taken
      • Local control
        • Control is localized and independent
      • Data management and analysis
        • Provide added value through information database and support of decision making processes

Pressure Policies



g dpm pressure optimization combining it control
G-DPM Pressure Optimization: Combining IT & Control
  • DMAs are equipped with
    • Galcon Controller
    • PRV in the DMA Entry Pressure Monitor at the Critical Point
    • Pressure and flow is transmitted via GPRS to the G-DPM Management Application
    • Optimal pressure policy is determined for each DMA
    • Policy is downloaded to the Controller remotely and is applied

pressure management controller
Pressure Management Controller
  • State-of-art controller works with any pressure reducing valve equipped with a hydraulic pilot.
  • 3 different modes
    • Pressure – Flow
      • Adjust pressure according to the flow
    • Pressure – Time
      • Adjust pressure according to preset time table
    • Exceptional Days
      • Different routine for specific days
pressure management controller1
Pressure Management Controller
  • Additional Highlights
    • Highly durable and reliable
    • Remote connectivity and management
    • Maintenance free- up to 5 years of battery operation
    • Easily operated on site with display and control buttons
    • Emergency-mode setting - circumvent normal setting
    • Input for flow meter
    • Adjustable rate of logging
    • IP-68 Standard
g dpm management web based
G-DPM Management: Web-based
  • DMA management is via standard web
    • Anytime, anywhere
    • Secure
    • Easy to use
  • System can be configured to work at the premises of the utility or as a “cloud” service
g dpm management central management
G-DPM Management: Central Management
  • Central application to manage all aspects of the system
    • Set policy from center to all DMAs
    • Central database for all information
    • Policy and recommendation at system level
g dpm management feedback optimization
G-DPM Management: Feedback & Optimization
  • Feedback , Optimization & Analysis
    • Analysis and optimization tools to determine best policy
    • “Learning” solution – adapts to changes
    • Constant improvement of results
    • Full reporting and alerts – for critical decision making
pressure reducing valve
Pressure Reducing Valve
  • Working with variety of valve manufacturers- can work with any valve with a hydraulic pilot (actuator)
    • Flexibility in implementation
    • Lower cost
    • Adaptable solution fit to customer needs
    • Provides full compatibility to existing environment
  • Valves can be provided by Galcon due to relationships with major valve manufacturers
