Young Engineering’s Bladder Surge Tank (BST) technology utilizes a unique energy absorption approach to suppressing damaging hydraulic transient pressure spikes.
Sudden valve closures or when a pump starts or stops changes the fluid flow pressure and creates significant stress in vulnerable sections of a pipeline
The stress generated on the pipeline and the accompanying components and instrumentation is high enough to lead to potential breaks or leaks in the pipeline and also greatly decreases the life of the ancillary equipment.
Young Engineering Bladder Surge Tanks are carbon steel or stainless steel vessels built to ASME standards with an inflatable bladder inside the tank.
The Bladder Surge Tanks are generally available in Horizontal or Vertical Orientation depending on space and size requirements
