A pressure surge is generated in a pipeline system when there is any change in the rate of flow of liquid in the line. The surge pressure can be dangerously high if the change is too rapid.
Hydraulic-surge package should be a complete surge analysis. Part of the results of such analysis is the determination of how much flow will need to be relieved and at what set pressure. These two design criteria will help select a properly sized surge-relief package which will reduce surge pressure to an acceptable level during unsteady state flow conditions. Surge relief protection is critical for the Hydraulic, Transmission Lines, and Oil Tanker Loading Terminals industry to ensure safety, regulatory
Surge pressures (water hammer) in piping systems are generated by changes in the velocity of flow in a system. These sudden velocity changes can be caused by the operation of valves and pumps, or by expulsion of air from the piping system. In many applications like pipelines, loading, storage terminals, equipment and personnel need to be protected from the potential damage that can be caused by pressure surges. These surges can be removed by using surge relief system.
