The greater Brisbane Council region has a large network of pressure reducing valves. All of these are telemetry directed and flow modulated. Put simply they turn the system’s pressure down when demand is low and turn it up when demand is high.
QUU utilise a flow/pressure modulation system management model whereby domestic and commercial water supply reticulation system pressure is increased with a respective increase in system flow demand and conversely pressure is decreased with a decrease in flow demand. This effectively negates pipe friction effects and delivers a relatively constant system pressure independent of flow demand.
