Dubai, November 11, 2021 – ERGIL has been awarded a new contract for the design and fabrication of surge vessels for ETIHAD RAIL STAGE 2 & 3 PROJECT-PACKAGE 2F2.
ERGIL, with a dedicated and experienced staff, offering high-quality oil, gas, and water process equipment manufactured with professionalism, continues to extend its references in surge vessel (water hammer) segment. ERGIL offers a wide range of custom-made high and low-pressure vessels for the water, marine, processing of bulk liquids and gases; such as deaerators, absorbers, scrubbers, surge vessels, silencers, filters, process towers, and columns along with shell and tube type heat exchangers.
ERGIL is supplying 12 surge vessels of different capacities ranging from 150 Liters to 3000 Liters for different locations in the United Arab Emirates for this project. The design is based on ASME Code sec VIII Div 1 and the material of construction is Carbon Steel. All the vessels are customized according to project requirements and comes with special insulation to withstand extreme desert temperatures. ERGIL surge vessels design provides optimum performance thanks to its butyl rubber bladder. Surge vessel is used for balancing the water pressure in the the cold water and treated grey water supply system of Freight Facility.
“Etihad Rail is a prestigious project in UAE which aims to link the country’s centre of trade, industry and population, and will provide passenger and freight services. This rail network will be the future of freight movements as it connects with other GCC countries like Saudi Arabia. We are happy to be part of such an ambitious project and to help the contractor to solve the problems related with water hammer and pressure transients.”, says project sales engineer Muhammad Shameel.
A surge vessel or water hammer is a standpipe or storage reservoir at the downstream end of a closed aqueduct or feeder or a dam or barrage pipe to absorb sudden rises of pressure, as well as to quickly provide extra water during brief drop in pressure. Surge vessels (surge tanks) are important assets in the water treatment process, though incorrect maintenance and management can lead to issues in pipelines costs and the water industry millions every year, causing burst pipes, structural damage, negative pressures, and colossal water wastage. Negative pressure directly contravenes Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) legislation due to the risk of contamination.
