Surge Suppression Equipment

Pressure surge and cavitation can cause significant damage to the piping systems of a process plant, often resulting in significant downtime. The use of Flowmaster V7 can help you predict the areas of your piping systems where this is likely to happen. Often time dependant changes to the operation of the systems such as a slower valve closure time can help to eliminate this concern; however some systems require the addition of surge suppression equipment. Flowmaster V7 includes several types of surge suppression methods, including relief valves and accumulators that can be added to the model and analysed before being added to the physical system.

Rising Main System

Scenarios where you could use Flowmaster to meet a design requirements:

  • Evaluating whether the system meets desired flow rates
  • To investigate the impact of different components on the overall safety system
  • Correct sizing of components to ensure efficiency and low operating cost
  • To understand the effects of different operating conditions on the overall safety system
  • Failure scenarios for sudden transient events to ensure they are within the system limits

Key Safety Systems Modelling & Simulation Features:

  • Steady State and Transient flow analysis using a wide range of heat transfer options
  • Examine system pressures, flow rates and temperatures
  • Wide range of hydraulic system components
  • Flow balancing module for regulating system flow rates
  • Design out pressure surge and cavitation
