What is water hammer

What is water hammer

Hear the metallic sound of "Bang", "Bang", "Bang" on the steam line.

Occasionally there is also a loud boom sound, which is the sound of water hammer in the pipeline.

During the transportation of water or other liquids, due to the sudden closure of the valve, the sudden stop of the pump unit, etc., the flow rate of the water suddenly changes,

Due to the inertia of the water flow, a shock wave is generated, just like a hammer, so it is called water hammer.

When a water hammer occurs, a pressure of more than 10MPa will be instantly generated in the pipeline.

This will have a serious impact on the pipeline and equipment, and will eventually cause damage, rupture, etc. to the pipeline and equipment.
