• WATER-HAMMER AND PRESSURE SURGE SOLUTIONS •
Pressure surges will occur in a closed piping system when liquid flow velocity is suddenly changed by sudden starting or stopping of a pump; or suddenly opening or closing a valve. These pressure changes can be severe, resulting in 'Water Hammer' caused by the excessive pressure rise which can be damaging both to pumps and pipework.
Although the presence of water hammer can be more annoying than harmful - left to persist it may eventually cause damage, especially in longer pipe-runs and high-rise applications. Several solutions are shown to reduce or minimumise pressure surges in boosted cold water applications...
