•Engineering client requires a compensation system ”water hammer” at Antucoya Mine.
•EATHISA accepted the challenge to design, build and implement this system with not setbacks up today since commissioning.
•This “Surge Tanks” corresponds to a bank of two vertical steel tanks with 12.5 m3 “bladders” of “natural rubber and neoprene”.
•We solved complex conditions such as:
•Using natural rubber neoprene with pressure variations of bar 45 without breaking.
•Chemical composition of water with sulfates himself.
•Vertical configuration and momentums, resulting from loads /impulsive shock.
