Seminar: Pressure Surges, Steam Hammers And Pulsations In Piping

On 18-19 March 2013 in Berlin and 22-24 April 2013 in Munich through a better understanding of the phenomena of pressure shocks, cavitation shock, pulsations and steam hammers, processes can be operated energy – and cost-efficient. Pressure shock and cavitation vibration in pipelines, mostly caused by too fast closing valves at increasing throughput rates, can significantly affect the safe transport and often lead to leakage and production losses in liquid promotional lines also steam hammers and pulsations in steam and gas networks. In addition, transportation energy costs are often a significant portion of the operating costs of a production plant. Too conservative-based systems and outdated equipment cause a pressure loss and thus unnecessarily high energy demand, through a better understanding of the phenomena, processes can be optimized and operate energy – and cost-efficient. The two-day seminar of pressure surges, steam hammers and cycles in Understanding offers pipelines of the Haus der Technik on 18-19 March 2013 in Berlin and April 22-24, 2013, plan Munich and performing engineering for processes occurring in pipes. Videos of practical tests on the Institute’s own system of Fraunhofer UMSICHT are performed and explains basic methodologies for the estimation of the potential dangers and discussed measures to prevent. The basics, presented by Dr.-ing.

Andreas Dudlik, Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT, Oberhausen and Dr. rer. NAT. Habil. Phenomenology, and mitigation strategies, calculation of pressure surges, steam and pressure pulsations of cavitation shock include OLAF Baldwin, TECHNIP GERMANY GmbH, Dusseldorf. Models for load cases, assessment and corrective measures with practical examples. Other focuses of the HDT seminar pressure surges are experimental design, measurement, prevention methods and the application of computer-aided calculations for malfunctions and damage cases.
