Stopping pumps without water hammer

Switching off pumps that carry large volumes of water is a critical issue for wastewater plants. The pump stops immediately, causing the water in the pipes to also stop immediately and the kinetic energy left in the water is transmitted as "water hammer" causing serious damage to pipes, couplings, valves, and seals. This can be avoided with the SIRIUS 3RW55 soft starter’s pump stopping function.
