Blacoh acquires Transient system

Blacoh Surge Control, part of the global Blacoh Industries group, has recently declared that it has acquired rights to the Transient Pressure Monitoring system developed by Arizona-based Pipetech International.

Pipetech International developed the system to address the need for pipeline operators to detect and record transient pressure events occurring in water, wastewater and petroleum pipelines. The system is unique in that it employs a patented system of dynamic pressure transducers and digital technology to monitor pipelines for indefinite periods of time. The system is a strategic addition to Blacoh Surge Control, which provides custom analysis and engineered solutions for surge control using surge vessels and control valves. According to Blacoh President Andrew Yeghnazar, “This technology enables us to leverage our expertise and provide, through proof-of-design, the most comprehensive and efficient solutions for water hammer and transient events occurring in pipelines around the world.” Blacoh Surge Control provides system-wide surge assessment and modelling services, and customized engineering solutions for surge protection, pressure regulation, storage, and pump control. Executive Vice President Frank Knowles Smith, III is a well-respected trailblazer in fluid dynamics and is widely considered the industry’s foremost expert on surge control.
