CALGARY, Sept. 20, 2011 /CNW/ - Pure Technologies Ltd., ("Pure") (TSX:
PUR) is pleased to announce the introduction of its next-generation
SoundPrint® system for monitoring bridge cables and post-tensioning
systems. The system, called SoundPrint Light, utilizes Pure's patented
acoustic fibre-optic monitoring technology for monitoring prestressed
concrete pipelines, which was first introduced in 2005 and is now
deployed in over 1,500 km of pipelines. The technology provides
continuous dynamic integrity information to allow operators to manage
these critical assets cost-effectively and proactively.
SoundPrint Light has several advantages over the first-generation
sensor-based SoundPrint system. As the optical fibre cable acts as both
the sensor and the data transmission medium, the need for a separate
wired or wireless communication system is eliminated. Furthermore,
because it is an optical-based system, it is immune to electromagnetic
interference. This reduces installation and maintenance costs and
increases the sensitivity and reliability of the system.
Commenting on the development, Jack Elliott, Pure's President, said:
"We are pleased to be able to announce this important new initiative in
bridge monitoring technology. We are commercial originator of the
concept of continuous acoustic monitoring of bridges. We installed our
first SoundPrint bridge system on a highway viaduct in Huntingdon, UK,
in 1997, where it is still operating, and we have been providing bridge
owners with valuable information on the integrity of cables and tendons
in post-tensioned, cable-stayed and suspension bridges around the world
ever since. The introduction of SoundPrint Light is a natural outcome
of our experience with fibre-optic monitoring of pipelines and of our
extensive in-house research and development capabilities. This
development takes the concept of continuous monitoring of bridges to
the next level."
