Articles > Use Surgewave To Track Down Pressure Surges
Published: Wed, Jan 22, 2020
These are often signs of "transients" or "pressure surges" caused by changes in flow velocity. ie. valve closure, pump startup/shut down or addition demand.
infraStruct is proud to announce our new service for municipalities utilizing Blacoh’s patented SurgeWave™ Transient Monitoring Systems. This technology employs a system of dynamic pressure transducers and digital technology to monitor pipelines. When a transient such as a pressure surge, pressure spike or water hammer event is detected, the system activates a high speed data recorder to record the event 100x/second.
Often, plant operators do not find out about these dangerous abnormalities until much later when it is too late. With this Blacoh SurgeWave™ Transient Monitoring System installed, it will notify designers, engineers, manufacturers and operators immediately within a few minutes of the event. Allowing operators to perform the necessary corrections and maintenance.
