Applications of the Water Booster Pump System

Water supply systems usually need high pressures so as to pump water to longer distances. Similarly, cyclical water systems where water moves in a loop experience instances where the pressure in the system falls below a certain minimum value. In such a scenario, it will be necessary to install a supplementary mechanism called the booster pump system. Listed here are the various scenarios that need incorporation of booster pumping mechanisms.

Pumping Water over Long Distances
A working system of water supply makes use of pipes, valves and gates to direct water to a given location. The pipes along which the water flows contain friction which tends to act in opposing the water flow. The amount of frictional force experienced directional to the length of the system piping. This means that the pressure of the water in the system becomes considerably reduces after traveling a certain distance. Thus the system will need a boost of pressure if it’s expected to deliver the water at the point of utilization. Booster pumps are normally installed at certain intervals on a long distance pipeline to provide the necessary boost of pressure.

Deep Well Water Extraction
In some cases, the water to be extracted is contained in very deep wells. This is especially the case where the wells are dug in relatively dry and semi-arid areas where the water levels are usually very low. The system installed over such a well will require very high pressure to draw water against gravity. It is, therefore, necessary to supplement the system with booster pumps because the task cannot be handled by a single pump.

Systems That Have Fluctuating Demands
Most water supply systems for the urban centers usually have to cope with a varied demand for water In the course of a single day, different people will require various amounts of water for their use. This gives rise to peak demand hours as well as off-peak hours where the demand peaks. The supplying company would go at a loss if they attempted to base the system design on peak consumption rates. Instead, a system is put in place such that it can comfortably handle the off-peak consumption rate an then have a supplementary system in place with booster pumps to take care of the peak consumption rates. Irrespective of the conditions during operation, such a system can handle the varied loads perfectly.

Pumping and Disposal of Sewage Waste.
Municipal sewage waste also has varying degrees of viscosity. To prevent the blockage of the piping system, more pressure is usually required to pump human waste with higher viscosity than that with a lower viscosity. The system is therefore configured in such a way that the primary pumps can handle the basic flow, while the booster pumps kick in cases when there’s extra viscous flow.
