Filled lines reduce costs and increase operational reliability

Background & challenges

When the trailing point of a line is lower than the highest point in the system, siphon is created and the line runs the risk of emptying when the pump stops. Because air then enters the system, unwanted pressure surges often occur during subsequent pump starts.

Solution and result

To counteract this, we at BPS have developed various solutions to the problem. An example is a balanced system that retains the liquid column in the pipe system and that does not require an electrical connection. The entire system is supplied in a polyethylene downspout.

With BPS's unique solution, you now avoid the risk of draining lines and troublesome pressure surges, thereby increasing operational reliability. The placement works, with this solution, even in areas where electric traction would be difficult to defend financially.
