Yandanooka Booster Pump Design
Higher flow rate throughputs were the objective when Tetra Tech Proteus provided detail design andconstruction and technical support for reconfiguring Karara Mining’s pump station at Yandanooka, Western Australia.
Our design avoided relocating pumps in the changeover from parallel pump duties to a series arrangement. Piping was prefabricated and standard ductile iron fittings facilitated smooth installation.
The detail design involved:
- Updating hydraulic design for 135 km water supply pipeline
- Identifying the location and size of a new surge vessel to prevent negative line pressures and eliminate water hammer
- Using WaterGEMS for hydraulic calculation and using HAMMER software for transient analysis
- Piping tie-ins designed to minimise outage duration.
