High-performance products and custom services
FAST has a multi-workshop production facility. The control boxes are produced in the machining zones, while the assembly zones are where the company assembles the electronic boards which are then integrated with the other components to make the finished product.
There is a dedicated vehicle fitout section, where the vans are custom-built thanks to the flexible layout of the aluminium profiles. Experienced FAST fitters and installers complete the process.
FAST also has a training area comprising a meeting room, showroom and outdoor network to help leak detectors learn how to use the equipment.
Prelocation and pinpointing, using BIDI loggers and the AQUA M300
When installed in the network, BIDI dataloggers ‘listen’ to the pipes at night in order to prelocate any leaks. Using multi-point correlation techniques, the AQUA M300 then pinpoints the exact position of the leak.
Installation of loggers on valves and taps.
Recording of noise data at night and transmission to tablet or web platform
Location of leaks by multi-point correlation between loggers, followed by confirmation of the leak point acoustically
