Gere's my scenario: Water transfer pump. Static head on the system is about 395 feet, which we're pumping (VFD) against to deliver water to a tank some 1.4 miles away. Using a GA Industries 4" surge relief valve, low velocity of 5 fps (1650 usgpm), to be set to discharge to waste (may change this to discharge to suction). I'm going to set the valve to open at 10% higher than my system working pressure. I plan to set the surge relief valve to close just above my maximum static pressure to ensure I don't drain the tank. Does this sound reasonable? Any comments welcomed. Thanks.
