Hosted by the Hydraulic Institute, Purple Mountain Engineer, Dylan Witte, P.E., will address how a check valve operates within a system. The presentation will begin with a review of the fundamentals of waterhammer, then delve into an overview of check valve selection before moving to how to solve operational problems. It will conclude with a case study which illustrates analysis methods. Key learning objectives to take away are:
Engineers working at Purple Mountain Technology Group (PMTG) have been involved with a wide range of projects over the years. These projects may each have a unique industry, customer, or location, but they all have a common denominator: the analysis method used by a PMTG engineer.
Purple Mountain Technology Group sat down with Pumps & Systems magazine to discuss why you should worry about waterhammer, the damage it can do, and how to fix it. Listen to the podcast and learn how to identify waterhammer and what you should do to fix it.
Dylan Witte, EIT just became Dylan Witte, P.E.! Dylan began modeling career with Applied Flow Technology and then transferred to Purple Mountain Technology Group where he consults engineers around the world on hydraulic flow modeling and analysis. Dylan is highly respected by PMTG clients as he handles their toughest, and time-critical projects. Congratulations Dylan!
You never know where business may come from! I just got back from WEFTEC with AFT’s Reinaldo Pinto and with BLACOH Industries. It was a highly productive trip, both personally and professionally. Sharing a both with BLACOH helps cement our expertise as waterhammer experts. The ability to show exactly what waterhammer is using BLAOCH’s test stand to those with little to no experience and then immediately show how it was modeled using
How do you determine which specific cases are going to give you the worst response you need to design for?
