Surge Control System Operation
The before and after image depicts the pressure variations in a pipeline after a pump shut down without the protection of a surge tank and the pressure variations in the same pipeline after a pump shut down with the protection of a PULSCO surge tank.
The surge control system controls the energy and thus minimizes transient pressure from the shock waves. Since the pressure condition in the pipeline is sensed automatically, the surge arrestor reacts immediately to a pressure decrease by discharging water to the pipeline before column separation occurs.
