Pumping Station & Pipeline Design
Pump Stations

We have all heard that "oils aint oils". Well, in the same way, pumping stations aren’t just pumping stations. Each one is a unique creation.

Tallemenco designs pumping stations using a 132 point planner, devised “in house” from Rob's 40 + years of experience of pumping station design, installation, operation and maintenance.
Fit for Purpose

Tallemenco designs are “fit for purpose”, that is to say, the most suitable type of pumps, appropriate pipework size, flow metering and filtration, use of stainless steel or coated metals, all in a maintainable position inside of the building or area that will house them.

Corrosion prevention also gets major consideration in our designs.
Tallemenco Manager, Rob Welke, has designed over 120 pumping stations up to 525kW over the last 3 decades and physically built, installed and commissioned at least half of them, all over Australia and SE Asia.

All designs come complete with working drawings, specifications and Bill of Material (or Schedule of Quantities) to enable the client to shop around for contract installers and component suppliers.

Whilst Rob no longer builds pump stations, his extensive knowledge ensures that your project won’t be a trial design or an untried experiment and will therefore save you money in the long run!

Pipeline Design

Tallemenco uses EPANet for pipeline design. This is water pipeline specific software which assists in pipe diameter selection given required flows and pipeline friction values, from which Rob's experience from pipeline friction testing enables realistic inputs to its designs.

EPANet enables real pump curves to be included in the design, with a variety of hydraulic valves. The end design can be test run before it gets to the ground.

From Rob's experience in pipeline design and project management, all of the physical requirements for pipeline installation, such as thrusting, bedding are covered in Tallemenco's designs.

Contact Tallemenco for your pumping station and pipeline design requirements.
EPANet software enables pump curve, pipeline friction and valve losses to be included in design calculations so that a pumping/pipeline system can be "test run" before installation.
