Pump stations are characterized by pressure surges due to the sudden velocity changes associated with the starting and stopping of pumps. Specially engineered check valves or pump control valves are often needed on the discharge of the pumps to prevent slam and/or minimize pressure surges while surge relief and anticipator valves provide protection from excessive surges resulting from power outage or pump failure.
