The patented technology uses sound waves to non-invasively detect blockages in segments of sewer collection pipe by quickly inserting a portable transmitter and receiver into either end of the pipe or through a network of stationary devices that can maintain continuous assessment. The innovation of the underlying technology lies in the fact that it uses an ACTIVE transmit and receive process to assess pipe blockage conditions as compared to the reflective nature of similar applications such as SONAR or ultrasound.
The active transmit and receive process works extremely well in gravity-fed sewers to detect abnormalities in a simple, low cost, and straightforward way.. .

The Compressor Controller is a state-of-the-art controller for reciprocating piston air compressors. It leverages a new application of the fundamentals of science, Real-Time Modeling and Machine Control, to improve compressor performance while reducing its energy footprint.
This approach is a fundamentally different method of operation than traditional compressor control systems. It is an edge computing solution that leverages computing power embedded into sensors to sense and receive precision feedback to build a 360* real-time model.
This model is employed to perform optimal control based purely on the physics of the air compressor machine and process. The competitive advantage lies in the proprietary computing methodology used to perform the real-time feedback, data analysis and modeling.
Conceptually, the Compressor Controller works through sensors and actuators (device to assist in machine operation) that feed into and are controlled by a working model. The model receives synchronized sensor input on the environment and the machine operation to constantly calculate and implement the optimal actuation in the moment.
This model-based approach allows the control system to always compare the actual compressor operation against the scientific ideal and automatically implement the necessary adjustments accordingly. The result is a compressor that always improves its performance, consuming less energy, while securely providing access to an entirely new layer of machine operating and performance data.
The Compressor Controller provides a unique and powerful combination of market desired characteristics for reciprocating piston compressors of any size or brand both on an operations and a cost basis.. .
