Project: Pump Station
Location: Nyah, Victoria
Timeframe: August 2016
Challenge: Client required a pump station to be changed from one large pump to 3 smaller pumps operating in parallel so that operating a low flow rates would be more efficient. The space available to connect the three pumps was limited and the inlet and discharge manifold design needed to be optimised to avoid excessive head loss and cavitation.
Services: FEA, CFD, Design Engineering
Solution: The pumping arrangement was modelled and analysed with CFD to ensure optimal flow through the manifolds under all flow conditions.
