Lift Station Solutions – Surge Protection

Previously on Lift Station Solutions we discussed the need for proper maintenance. Proper maintenance begins with a thoroughly designed lift station, especially when it comes to protecting the entire system from natural phenomena. Surge protection is a critical piece of any process and should not be overlooked. Proper surge protection can mean saving you from costly power surges, failures, lightning strikes, etc. These natural, and too often, occurrences can wreak havoc on your lift station. Surge protection should be on each incoming and outgoing electrical line, radio, and control piece. It should also be located on each individual instrument when and where applicable. Failure to protect against natural surge issues can be costly to the environment due to potential pressure surge and the utilities’ bottom line from replacing instrumentation and other necessary equipment.

 

You can see from the below list of solutions, there is a lot of area to cover  in regard to surge protection at a lift station!

The AirGuard line of surge protection devices provides radio frequency protection and includes both gas discharge tube (GDT) and quarterwave stub technologies (QWS).

CA range devices are wideband, high current devices for the protection of radio transmitters and receivers connected to coaxial feeders. They protect vulnerable equipment without affecting normal operation, passing high frequency signals with little attenuation while diverting surge currents safely to earth and clamping output voltages to safe levels.

The MTL SD range is a series of surge protection devices combining unparalleled packing densities, application versatility, proven reliable hybrid circuitry, simple installation and optional ‘loop disconnect’ facilities.

Datasheet

 

ZoneMaster is engineered to protect the most critical electronic systems, suppressing surges at the main service panel. This patented range of devices has the advantage of remote monitoring capabilities and full module diagnostic indication.

Datasheet

 

MA15 Range- MA15 units protect against ‘noise pollution’ and 'clean up' the effects of industrial noise and surges caused by lightning, switching devices, thyristor controls, transmission system overloads and power-factor correction circuits.

Datasheet

 

The TP48 surge protection device safeguards field-mounted process transmitters. The TP48 screws into an unused conduit entry, with no additional modification, it provides high-level protection against surges and transients whilst normal operation remains unaffected.
