SURGE VESSEL / AIR VESSEL
Surge Vessels are crical components in fluid system, here we applied for water treatment plant, designed to protect the system from the harmful effects of pressure surges and fluid hammer. These vessels are typically installed at upstream of pumps and downstream of valves and functions as absorbing excess pressure and providing a cushioning effect against fluid hammer, ensuring that the WTE Infra’s system operates smoothly and efficiently.
The Surge Vessels used in water treatment plants are typically designed to meet specific application requirements and are available in a range of sizes and configurations. These vessels are made of high-quality materials such as carbon steel, stainless steel, mild steel, or fiberglass, RFP and can be customized by WTE Infra to suit the specific needs of the application.
TYPES OF SURGE VESSEL
- Compressor Type Surge Vessel
- Bladder Type Surge Vessel
With a superior built we ensure low maintenance and high productivity, this range of products we offer with or without rubber bladders that are capable of withstanding pressures of up to 25 bar.
The main purpose of the surge vessel is to maintain the correct pressure whilst water is transmitted to the mains networks. A potable water surge vessel is connected to the mains outlet pipework, pressurised with compressed air, the vessel conserves the water pressure by absorbing any spikes or drops, maintaining the flow and velocity of the water.
- User-friendly programmable controls.
- High quality components ensure continuous, reliable operation.
- Pre-engineered & factory tested systems mean easy installation CEB (Chemical enhance backwash) connections maximize system availability.
- Power plants

Frequently Asked Question
A surge vessel is a type of pressure vessel that is used to store and regulate the flow of fluids, such as water or compressed air. It is typically used in systems where the demand for fluid can vary, such as in water supply systems, industrial processes, and HVAC systems.
A surge vessel works by storing a volume of fluid under pressure. When the demand for fluid exceeds the supply, the stored fluid is released to meet the demand, and when the supply exceeds the demand, the excess fluid is stored in the vessel. This helps to regulate the flow of fluid and prevent pressure fluctuations in the system.
Surge vessels can be classified into several types, including bladder vessels, diaphragm vessels, and piston vessels. Each type has its own unique design and operating principles.
Surge vessels can provide several benefits, such as protecting equipment and piping from pressure surges, improving system efficiency and reliability, and reducing the need for expensive and complex control systems.
Surge vessels should be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure optimal performance. This includes checking the condition of the vessel, the integrity of the bladder or diaphragm, and the pressure relief valves.
The lifespan of a surge vessel depends on many factors such as the material of construction, usage, maintenance and operating conditions. A well-maintained surge vessel can last for many years, but it is important to have it inspected by a professional to ensure that it is still in good condition.
The sizing of a surge vessel is typically calculated based on the expected flow rate, pressure, and volume of the system. It is also important to consider the maximum pressure surge that the system may experience, as well as any safety factors that may be required.
When working with a surge vessel, it is important to follow proper safety precautions to protect yourself and others. This includes wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment, following proper procedures when working with pressure vessels, and being aware of the potential hazards associated with the system.
