Acorn completed a £128,000 contract for a University on Merseyside. The project involved the installation of a bespoke AquaTech Pressmain HY9 variable speed booster set.
As well as supplying the HY9AV, an 8” ABS ring main (approx. 100m of pipe was installed, much of it at high level) around the Hydraulics Laboratory with various ‘take offs’ to run a selection ofexperiments where the movement of water is required. These vary from powering both Francisand Pelton turbines, to supplying water to experiments where wave patterns are used to create an ‘hydraulic jump’ to simulate the effects of a tsunami.
The work was completed over a ten week period, with commissioning taking place at the end of the project.
