Surge Analysis

PULSCO’s Surge Analysts are experienced in modeling of a large variety of fluids and pipelines, including all pumps and valves, whether this is for transmission or distribution. Proposed solutions take into account short term and long term plans by owners and planned operation. 

The above example illustrates an onsite field verification of pressure variations in a pipeline after a pump shut down with a PULSCO hydropneumatic surge control system in place.
