Hydro Pneumatic Pressure Booster Systems

Technology and Process Description

Hydro pneumatic (HP) systems are used to supply and maintain pre-set level of water pressure at a certain number of tap points. These systems boost the water pressure to achieve consistent flow for diverse applications. These systems are designed either with single or with multiple pumps to have continuous and consistent water pressure and also designed with variable frequency drive unit. HP systems are totally automated and requires no manual intervention which in turn ensures smooth and consistent operations.

A Pressure Booster System consists of the following components

Tank: This tank consists of an air-filled poly-ether-urethane (PEU) bladder. The water enters this tank and compresses the air cell and pressurizes the air which in turn pressurizes the water. This water is delivered to your water supply system under consistent pressure.

Pump: This pump supplies water to the pressure tank and to your water distribution system. It is controlled through an automatic pressure-controlled switching device.

Pressure Switch: The pump is electrically connected to the pressure switch which controls the pressure at which water is delivered and in turn the on/off operation of the pump is also controlled.

As the pressure booster system is switched on, the pump which is connected to the raw water source starts pumping water into the HP booster tank. This water pumped in to the tank is further compressed and pressurizes the bladder which in turn maintains a desired level of pressure within the whole water distribution system. When the taps are closed in your distribution system, pressure builds in the tank. As the pressure reaches the optimum level, the pressure switch shuts off the pump. When taps are opened, the tank releases pressurized water. This reduces the pressure and the pressure switch actuates the pump. The entire plumbing infrastructure is kept under pressure by this system and it is versatile enough to work with or without overhead tanks.

For high-volume water requirements, custom-built systems are available with variable speed drives. High fidelity pressure sensors sense the minutest water quantity drawn and the variable speed drive pump delivers the demanded quantity at a preset pressure. Complete and efficient management of water pressure is achieved with lower operation costs.

MORF uses the most efficient pumps and 100% corrosion-resistant tanks to build quality HP systems. These systems are available in a range of capacities to suit specific site requirements and are widely used in hotels, residences, high-rise buildings, hospitals, factories and other such commercial establishments.

The Conventional Way

The conventional water distribution system uses a maze of pipelines of different diameters for a single floor or for a group of floors to increase the pressure in the taps. There may be a good quantity of dirt, debris, sand and other such physical impurities settled on the floor of the overhead tank which ideally should be cleaned once in every 15 days. Failure to clean the overhead tanks could result in choking of the valves, pipelines and precious fittings. This conventional method has almost become obsolete in many other parts of our world.

When do you ideally need a Pressure Boosting System ?

  • When water trickles from your taps and showers
  • When you do not have an overhead tank
  • When all floors of your building do not get water with equal force

General Features and Technical Information

  • Fully automatic system
  • Light, compact, durable and easy to install
  • Provides constant water pressure in all taps, showers, bathtubs, dishwashers and gardening equipments
  • Provides consistent water pressure on all floors of your building
  • Silent operation
  • Low operation and maintenance cost
  • Monitors water flow and provides for automatic shut off if no water is available, thus eliminating one major cause of pump breakdown/burnout
  • Can be a replacement for the over head tank in case of uninterrupted power supply.
  • Can be used with or without the overhead tank
  • Composite (FRP) tank never corrodes and no harmful traces of metal are passed in to the water

VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) Based Boosting Systems
The basic function of the VFD is to control the pump to meet your system demands. It performs functions like i. Measuring the system pressure by a transducer mounted on pump discharge ii. Calculating the motor speed to maintain the correct pressure iii. Sending out a signal to the pump motor to start, stop or increase / decrease the speed.

VFD Multiple Pump Operation and Control
Constant pressure is maintained by the VFD in a multi-pump system in the same manner of a single pump system. However, as the first pump reaches the maximum speed, increased demand will cause the pressure drop as the pump runs down its curve. In a single pump system, the pump would shutdown at run out, while in the multi-pump system, the pressure drop causes the second pump to come online.
