Pressure Surge Training

We offer interactive, technical training in the physics of pressure surges to enable hydraulic engineers, operators and transient modellers to:

  • determine the potential for pressure surges on your system
  • determine the likelihood of failures
  • design safer systems
  • review and specify analyses more critically.

The best training course I have ever attended

“This is honestly the best training course I have ever attended. I thoroughly enjoyed the two days, and I thought Peter was excellent at taking complex concepts and explaining them in a comprehendible way. This course has definitely left me much more knowledgeable and competent in this subject making me much more useful to the company as a result.”

Most Enjoyable Course

“I believe I speak for everyone in that I found the experience one of the most enjoyable courses I've attended for a long time. The day passed quickly and I found it particularly enlightening. Surge is not that scary subject it once was, for me anyway and now we have a pool of engineers in Inverness that have more confidence and better able to understand the potential level of surge issue within their projects.”

Training Course Day 1Pressure Surges in Pipeline Systems
Day 1 is a general introduction to hydraulic transients. Delegates should be competent in steady state hydraulics, pump curves, system curves and friction. While it is not designed for surge modellers, many experienced surge modellers have found it valuable to have this insight into the subject of their modelling.Contents include:
– Pump Stop Surge
– Valve Close Surge
– Pump Start/Priming Surge
– Air Vessel Design
– What to look for in a surge analysis report
Training Course Day 2Pressure Surge Modelling Strategies
Day 2 focusses more on pressure surge modelling. It will give modellers an opportunity to explore modelling strategies for various scenarios.
It is essential that Day 1 has been completed before attending Day 2.
Non modellers will also benefit from an improved understanding of check valve design, and more complex issues than are dealt with on Day 1.
– A comparison of surge analysis software types
 – Surge analysis strategies
 – Solution design and optimisation
 – Check valve design practical design
 – Air Valves, vacuum breakers and antislam 
 – Suction considerations
 – Summary discussion and review of issues

The next course is arranged in response to demand.
