Water Hammer in Pipe-Line Systems J. Záruba
Publisher: Elsevier Science
With steam systems, this loss of energy represents inefficiency, and thus pipes are insulated to limit these losses. Lay out full scale drawings of pipe systems, supports, and related hangers, and hydraulic cylinders, according to specifications. Uponor PEX plumbing systems retain more heat in hot-water lines and resist condensation on cold-water lines. Whatever the quality or thickness of insulation, there will always be a level of heat loss, and In severe cases, waterhammer may fracture pipeline equipment with almost explosive effect, with consequent loss of live steam at the fracture, leading to an extremely hazardous situation. Water hammer most commonly occurs when a valve is closed quickly and suddenly stops the flow of liquid in a pipeline. Cut, thread, and hammer pipe to specifications. An Uponor PEX plumbing system dampens rushing water noise and eliminates water hammer and singing pipes. Complete logs, reports, work orders, requisitions, and other records and communications as required. Surge relief valves open to allow the high pressure spikes caused by waterhammer to vented, thus protecting the pump, check valve and pipeline. Inspect, examine, and test installed systems and pipe lines, using pressure gauge, hydrostatic testing, observation, or other methods. Cut and thread pipe for water and gas service boxes. They can either be triggered by low pressure or by high pressure. Unlike metal alternatives, PEX plumbing systems are immune to corrosion and mineral buildup. Older systems don't handle cold weather very well. For example, as contractors slowly attach new lines to old, one slipup can cause "water hammer," i.e., shock waves reverberating down fragile pipes.
