Booster Working Principle / System / Shape / Maintenance
Boosters are used in buildings, flats, villas, sites and high-rise buildings to meet the need for mains water or pressurized water from tanks when the mains water pressure is not sufficient. In short, we can say that it is the water pressurization system used in places where water pressure is insufficient. These systems, most of which are powered by electricity, increase the pressure of the water flowing from our taps.
Boosters are electricity-powered sumac water pumps produced to use a system to increase water pressure. Boosters transport the water they suck from a certain water reservoir to distant points with the help of high pressure. Thanks to the expansion tanks connected to the booster, they keep pressurized water already.
The difference between booster and pump is a detail that is generally curious. Let's briefly explain this as follows. The booster is a whole system and consists of both the pump and the control equipment that controls the pump's in-and-out. Sumak Pump has a system consisting of protection equipment in order to provide longer lasting operation, so it does not focus on a single purpose, in general the system provides control and protection.
Hydrophors Working Principle:
It is the name given to the hydrophore working method, booster pumps and the pumps that are automatically activated when the mains water is insufficient. It pressurizes the water in the water tank with air and pumps it to a distant point, in short, this is the working principle. The choice of hydrphor pump should be purely tailored; It should be able to give the water the pressure to go to the desired place. The hydrophor is not only a system consisting of water tank and pump, but also has auxiliary elements installed. We can count these auxiliary elements as follows; Expansion Tank, Manometer, Check valve, Ball valve, Pressure Switch, Control Panel and Water Level Floater.
The ball valve is used to shut off the water flow to the hydrophore.
Check valve; In case of pressure decrease, it prevents the water flow from going to the opposite direction.
Pressure Switch; regulates the operation of the pump according to the pressure in the installation. It has 2 options as relief pressure switch and non-discharge pressure switch.
The pressure switch used in hydrophor is a pressure switch without relief. Released pressure switch is mostly used in air compressors.
Expansion Tank; Since water is an incompressible fluid, it compresses the air thanks to the membrane in the tank and stops the pump.
Control panel ; It is a panel that provides electrical protection so that the pump, which has elements such as contactor, thermal, phase protection relay, can serve longer life.
Water Level Floater; This part, also known as the float, prevents the pump from running without water by controlling the water condition in the tank where the pump is sucking.
If we explain the hydrophore working principle; The pressure switch sends the required signal to the control panel for the operation of the sumak pump for the desired pressure in the installation. If the conditions required for the pump to operate are met, the control panel starts the sumak pump by starting it. When there is no use left in the building, when the pressure switch in the installation reaches the desired upper pressure level, the sumak pump cuts the signal to the control panel to stop the sumak pump, and the sumak pump switches to standby mode.
