Engineers attending this seminar will have an understanding of water hammer and computer surge modeling of pump(s) start/stop and valve operation (control valve opening/closing, check valves, air/vacuum valves). The mathematical calculations for pressure surge effects are quite extensive and only through computer surge modeling can this process be conducted quickly and accurately. In conjunction with transient pressure monitoring equipment that can record data at over 200 times per second, Engineers now will know exactly what is happening with their pumping system and how to resolve it safely and comprehensively.
