Reasons for Pulsation Dampeners and Smoothness

Stop Drive belt break-up, keep instant load changes less than 14%.

To stop tooth chatter wear, depending on machine inertia, keeps pressure transients less than 12%.

To Stop premature Lift & "weeping", keep all pressure waves that are sustained for in excess of 40 ms below 9% less than static set pressure.

Prevent bust disk fatigue, by keeping repetitive spikes to less than + / - 4% of steady state pressure.

If in doubt stay below 5psi transient over pressure to stop pipe fatigue

Examples: 25 ft of 1" pipe with a 100 Hz frequency. Keep the shocks below 10 psi 6500 ft of 20" @ 0.5 Hz, keep below 30 psi.

Surge Shock and Pulsation Dampeners

Suitability for purpose recommendations made on the basis of data & calculations above are with the following normal responsibilities of the parties: System Design, S.D. to consider, Pump Vendor, Bottle Peddler

Select fluid control pulsation dampeners for your system only after you know how to connect them
When you see pulsation dampeners, reciprocating pumps, rotary pump, or other hardware type of interest, request literature dedicated to that dampening subject ( 1-888-DAMPERS )

Pulsation dampeners are designed to address pressure pulsation, which is caused by the resistance of the system to flow. Therefore, our pulsation dampeners focus on the system related responsibility and are less related to pump liability.
PUMPS make FLOW, SYSTEMS cause PRESSURE, pressure pulsation is a system response, AND a system responsibility NOT a pump manufacturers liability.
