Charlatte is the world leader in the design and manufacture of bladder-type surge control pressure vessels used in potable, raw and waste water applications. Charlatte tanks are also used to provide increased chlorine contact time, surge protection, pressure regulation, pump cycle control and pressurized storage. Charlatte surge tanks can also be used with fuel and other hydrocarbon systems.
If you are experiencing repeated pipe breaks near a pump station, the problem may be a result of transient pressure surges. After repeated surge episodes, this invisible force can weaken pipe until it finally fails. Pipe failures can result in financial losses as well as potential injury to personnel.
Charlatte pressure vessels are manufactured to ASME Section VIII, are National Board registered and can also carry the UL Listing. All Charlatte bladder tanks are NSF-61 approved including all materials and components within the HYDROFORT and HYDROCHOC product groups.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that a check valve or a relief valve has the ability to mitigate the transient surge waves associated with routine pumping operations.
Charlatte tanks are designed to prevent the pipelines from going into a negative pressure after a worst case scenario pump trip or power failure.
Harper Control Solutions and Charlatte can help to solve surge problems that utility systems experience. We will work with your consulting engineer and perform a hydraulic surge analysis using the engineers hydraulic model of your system.
Together, we will help you keep it positive… Keeping your pipeline pressure positive to prevent surges caused by negative pressures is an essential step in eliminating catastrophic damage to your pipeline and nearby equipment.
