Do I need a surge valve or a surge vessel for small sewage lift pumping station with same elevation?

Do I need a surge valve or a surge vessel for small sewage lift pumping station with same elevation?

Do I need a surge valve or a surge vessel for small sewage lift pumping station with same elevation?

(OP)
Need advise please.

Do I need a surge valve or a surge vessel for small sewage lift pumping station with same elevation at the PS and at discharge point? The pressure at the discharge manhole is atmospheric pressure means zero.

Thank you guys. . .

RE: Do I need a surge valve or a surge vessel for small sewage lift pumping station with same elevation?

Would you post the image as a pdf attachment as it is impossible to read.

RE: Do I need a surge valve or a surge vessel for small sewage lift pumping station with same elevation?

Probably not, but you need to describe or provide information about what can casue the surge such as sudden valve closure or pump stop.

Velocity and length of pipe becomes important too.

If this is a simple very low head lift pump of a few metres, then no, but I can't read the picture either.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

From a maintenance standpoint I would strongly prefer to upgrade pipe class to handle any surge (or increase diameter to reduce velocity and surge magnitude)rather than installing anti-surge hardware in a sewage line.

Do I need a surge valve or a surge vessel for small sewage lift pumping station with same elevation? Attached is the pdf of the schematic diagram of the sewage lifting pumping station. Thank you very much, really appreciated.

No, you do not need a surge valve or surge vessel. The discharge chamber is also not necessary. You can discharge directly into the proposed sewer manhole.

A surge valve is only necessary if you want to prevent a downhill force main from draining between pump cycles.

You should have check valves on the pumps. No check valves are shown on the sketch.

Thank you very much to all, Yes I provided Non-Return Valve (NRV) or Check Valve inside the valve chamber just right after the pump to prevent any back flow to damage the pump. Your technical advises are highly appreciated. Thank you sirs!

White Paper - How ESI is Helping Move New Medical Device Product to Market Quicker & More Cost Effic
Early Supplier Involvement has long been a strategy employed by manufacturers to produce innovative products. Now, it almost seems like a necessity. Because decisions made in the design phase can positively affect product quality and costs, this can help add value to OEM bottom lines. This white paper will discuss many facets of ESI, including why it’s so valuable today, what challenges limit the benefits of ESI, how cost is impacted, and more. Download Now
White Paper - Moving to a Driverless Future
This white paper describes what we see as the best practices to support a sustainable engineering process for autonomous vehicle design. It exposes how to use simulation and testing in common frameworks to enable design exploration, verification and validation for the development of autonomous cars at a system, software and full-vehicle level to drive a mature product development process for automated driving.

Research Report - How Engineers are Using Remote Access
Remote access enables engineers to work from anywhere provided they have an internet connection. We surveyed our audience of engineers, designers and product managers to learn how they use remote access within their organizations. We wanted to know which industries have adopted remote access, which software they are using, and what features matter most. Download Now
