Bladder Surge Tank
A Bladder Surge Vessel is a surge control device installed with a butyl rubber bladder. A pre-charge pressure is calculated to give the required elasticity to push the water into the system following a pump trip. As there is no contact between the compressed air and the water, there is no dissolution. Thus, there is no requirement for a permanent regulation system including compressors, etc.
Once the vessel has been commissioned and the correct pre-charge has been introduced, the vessel will operate automatically, emptying when called upon and refilling with the return waves until naturally reaching its steady state balance.
Working pressure range: up to 100bar
- Maximum operating temperature: 60°C.
- The Bladder Surge Tank can be used in both potable water and wastewater applications.
