Blacoh’s patented SurgeWave™ Transient Monitoring Systems solves the need for pipeline operators to detect and record transient pressure events occurring in water, wastewater and petroleum pipelines. The system is unique in that it employs a system of dynamic pressure transducers and digital technology to monitor pipelines for indefinite periods of time. 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. They can assess pipeline performance, pressure, flow, and pump speed and perform the necessary corrections and maintenance.
Unlike conventional data loggers, SurgeWave’s high speed data collection allow operators to detect any anomalies that would’ve otherwise gone undetected with insufficient recordings. Use SurgeWave to prevent pipe fatigue, breakage and cavitation.
What is Transient Pressure?
Often referred to as “surge” or “water hammer,” a transient pressure is a wave phenomenon that accompanies a rapid change of fluid velocity in a pipeline. It can be caused from a sudden start/stop of pump or the closing of a valve, and is often heard as a large bang in the pipes (water hammer). These pressure variations can be positive or negative and have a magnitude several times the normal or maximum operating pressure, resulting in dangerous system damage if not mitigated or monitored. The duration of the pressure spike can be anywhere from several hundredths of a second to a few minutes. Blacoh’s patented SurgeWave™ Transient Monitoring System makes it possible for a user to capture these pressure fluctuations, address the pressures loads and protect their pipeline systems.
Controller: processes input signals, performs system logic, and stores data
Pressure Transducer: dynamic pressure transducer is capable of eroding both positive and negative pressures
Communications Links: three options between wired LAN link, wireless, or broadband/internet link
Data Analysis Tool: software that generate the graphical displays. Data is transferred in .dat format to a computer.
