What Is Water Hammer?

Water hammer is a shockwave that moves through the fluid (liquid) contained in a piping system. This shockwave occurs when a fluid already in motion is suddenly stopped, ceasing to move through the pipe. The abrupt stop creates a pressure surge that moves through the fluid, affecting everything within the closed pipe system. Though the […]
