1.The quality of Wave-making Pool
Wave-making pool is a kind of pond which is manually created to simulate ocean waves. In the water park, it is generally the largest of all water park equipment
. It can create atmosphere most. The ups and downs of waves on the water always bring excitement to the tourists, so that some water parks at home and abroad attract tourists by setting up such a large pool. The bottom of the wave-making pool should be designed as a slope from shallow to deep. This is conducive to the formation and development of waves. Wave-making machines and wave-generating outlets should be located in the deepest part of the pool.
2.Ways of Wave-making Pool
There are many ways to make waves, but according to their technical means, they can be divided into two categories: pneumatic and vacuum.
1.Pneumatic wave-making is a commonly used form of wave-making pool at present. It consists of air chamber, fan, valve mechanism, speed regulating mechanism, air duct system, control system and so on. Its characteristics are simple structure.
Working Principle: The air flow from the centrifugal fan is introduced into the air chamber, and the free water surface in the air chamber is compressed to generate waves by pumping/exhausting air repeatedly. Changing the frequency of pumping/exhaust flow and the size of airflow can change the size and length of the wave, and create eight effects such as simulating natural waves, surges and oblique waves. The wave height is 0.5-1.2 m and the wave length is 50 m. All parts of the wave-making system are separated from water, which is beneficial to the use and maintenance of water park equipment. The water park equipment is suitable for small water park. Pneumatic wave-making is the most commonly used wave-making method in water park because of its low cost of civil construction and equipment. But the disadvantage is that the noise is slightly higher. It is suitable for old people or children to play.
2.Vacuum wave-making system mainly consists of vacuum main engine, pipeline system, water circulation system, valve system, control system and air chamber.
Working Principle: Vacuum machine will empty the air in the air chamber, so that the water level rises indoors. When the water level reaches the preset height, the valve is opened, which makes the air chamber connect with the atmosphere. From negative pressure to atmospheric pressure, the rising pressure of the air chamber causes the water body with high water level to drop suddenly, which strongly impacts the water body outside the air chamber, thus generating waves. This kind of wave-making is characterized by large wave height up to 2.8m, and wave extension length up to 100m. It's spectacular and the waves are rolling. The disadvantage is that the wave-making interval is long, the structure is complex and the cost is relatively high. It is mainly used in large-scale water park wave-making pool. When the wave-making system is in operation, its energy consumption is large, so it usually does not last for a long time. Generally, waves are made 1-2 times an hour, and each time is 10-15 minutes long.
