Model construction

Our models are constructed in clear acrylic material on a substantial timber frame with internal benching and infill fabricated in opaque plastic.

Physical modelling can accurately reproduce all significant full scale hydraulic effects such as velocity distributions, air entrainment, vorticity etc.

A physical model can quickly assess pump intake conditions for all potential pump combinations and operating levels.

A physical model offers a fast method of developing solutions.

A physical model can give a good indication as to the behaviour of debris in a system.

A physical model can readily define minimum operating levels.

In applications where development options need to be studied for various screen, pump and sump combinations a Physical Model is the best method of analysis to use.
