Break Tank
Break tanks are implemented in boosting systems in order to supply the system if the mains supply becomes insufficient. Tanks are also implemented in series-connected boosting systems.
Bypass connection
Pipe connection between the suction and discharge side of a booster set in order to bypass water when the pumps are not in operation.
Constant pressure boosting
Increasing water pressure to a certain set point and keeping the pressure regardless of flow and inlet pressure.
Consumption profile
The consumption profile shows the relationship between the time of the day and the water flow rate. This is relevant in connection to water boosting systems.
Diaphragm tank
Diaphragm tanks are pressurized water vessels where the water and air are separated by a flexible diaphragm allowing the water to expand and absorb pressure surges.
Direct boosting
When a booster system is connected directly to the water mains it is called direct boosting.
Dry running protection
Dry-running protection is one of the most important monitoring functions, as bearings and shaft seal may be damaged if the booster pumps run dry. It is thus always recommend to install dry-running protection on all booster sets.
Emergency run
Hydro MPC booster sets and Control MPC systems in pressure boosting applications incorporates an emergency run function designed for important systems where the operation may not be interrupted.
Ethernet connection
The Ethernet connection on CU 351 brings the user interface to any computer. Control and monitoring can be conducted either directly or via Internet.
Geometric Height
In a boosting system, the geometric height is the physical height that the water has to be lifted, in order to reach the consumer.
