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!
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.
