Crucial Part of Your Pipeline Operation Integrity; Safe, Reliable and Sustainable

ERGIL Surge Protection & Water Hammer System is a powerful and user-friendly control system that protects your pipeline against water hammer & pressure transients for potable water, sea water and wastewater applications.

Water industry is being challenged with water scarcity, increasing construction, break-down, and maintanance costs, therefore continued operation has become more important than ever.

ERGIL Surge Protection & Water Hammer System protects not only humans’ life, but also your pipeline, pump stations, hydrants, valves, and other related equipment.

ERGIL designs and manufactures both bladder type and compressor type surge vessel systems.

Surge Vessels

Certified Pressure Vessel Manufacturer

ERGIL has been designing and fabricating engineered to order high pressure vessels since 1982. Surge vessel is the most important part of the water hammer system.

Designing and manufacturing high surge vessels requires certain specialization that has to be accredited by industrial authorities.

With more than 40 years of engineering experience and the trust of numerous successfully completed projects, we are always at your side.

Best Internal Bladders

Bladders are the most critical part of any air-in & water-in surge vessels. ERGIL’s years of experience, search and development projects help to understand how and what kind of bladder vessel to use. Choosing the right bladder plays an important role for the integrity of the system. Bladders are fragile items in nature and have to be designed with extra protection. Since, it is in direct contact with the water, it effects human life; therefore we offer certified bladders for potable water (drinking water) applications.

ERGIL manufactures;
Butyl Rubber (BR),
Polyurethane (PU),
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) type bladders.
Upon request, we also provide WRAS (UK Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) & Non-Toxic Certificate.

Compact Design

ERGIL’s compact skid bladder & compressor type vessels provide all you need on a single skid. ERGIL designs mobile or permanent frames, so moving from one place to another and using it for multiple pipelines is possible.

They are easy to transport from one location to another. Modules can be designed as per the shipping method (sea, road and even air) and the system can be customizable as per working environment to protect against rush weather effects or robbery.

Traditional surge vessel system contraction is costly, takes time, and safety concerns are high, however ERGIL’s mobile modular surge plug and play systems can reduce your project cost and time drastically in addition to eliminating site accidents. Contractors do not need to deal with site installation of such complicated.

  • Renowned company understanding of surge system design
  • Ensures compliance with Product Equipment Directive & ASME regulations
  • Reduces water leakage
  • Pipeline fatigue and bursts analyze
  • Minimizes risk of contamination in potable water pipes caused by negative pressures
  • Accommodates variable pumping regimes without dumping compressed air
  • Improves your company’s environmental social responsibility and public image
  • Vertical or horizontal types are available
  • The bladder is designed so it can expand to the full size of the vessel. This allows for greater drawdown volumes and less stress on the bladder.
  • The air is trapped in the space between the outside of the bladder and the wall of the vessel. Therefore the liquid is not in contact with the steel walls of the vessel.
  • Depending on the level of cubage in the tank it is possible to design by using minimum 3, maximum 4 legs as optional
  • Design code: ASME and others

Surge Vessels FAQ's

Welcome to the forefront of innovation in fluid management! At our company, we take immense pride in crafting top-of-the-line surge vessels that epitomize excellence in both performance and reliability.

Our surge vessels, also known as surge tanks, are engineered to exceed industry standards, ensuring optimal functionality in a variety of applications. But what truly sets us apart is our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.

As the best surge vessel manufacturer, we understand the critical role these tanks play in regulating fluid flow and pressure, which is why each vessel undergoes rigorous testing to guarantee peak performance.

Whether you're seeking to understand what a surge tank is or in need of a water surge tank for your specific requirements, we've got you covered.

Join us on this journey of innovation and discover why our surge vessels are the pinnacle of excellence in fluid dynamics.

A surge vessel, also known as a surge drum or surge tank, is a specialized storage vessel designed to manage pressure increases or decreases within a pipeline system. It serves to absorb sudden pressure surges or drops, thereby maintaining a stable pressure within the system and preventing possible damage to the pipeline and associated equipment.

Surge vessels can be broadly categorized into two types: bladder type and compressor type. The choice between the two depends on factors like application, required pressure range, and operational conditions.
Regular inspection and maintenance are crucial for maintaining the optimal operation of surge vessels. This may involve checking for signs of wear or damage, ensuring the integrity of the pressure boundaries, and servicing or replacing the internal bladder if needed.
Safety measures for operating a surge vessel may include regular inspection and maintenance, ensuring proper handling and operation procedures, and implementing safety devices such as pressure relief valves and level gauges.
The standard regulations for surge vessels may vary depending on the region and industry. However, commonly followed standards include those set by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), American Petroleum Institute (API), and European standards (EN).
ERGIL ensures compliance with all relevant regulations and standards by incorporating them into the design, manufacturing, and testing processes. All ERGIL surge vessels undergo rigorous testing and quality control checks to verify their compliance.
ERGIL surge vessels are manufactured under a quality management system certified to ISO 9001, ensuring high-quality and reliable performance. Specific certifications may also be available depending on the product and region.
