3 Frequently Asked Questions about pulsation dampeners


If you have got an Air operated double diaphragm pump in your system, odds are you might be experiencing some sort of pulsation resulting in the rattling & vibration movement in the pipes and system? A pulsation dampener may be a great choice for AODD pump to get a steady flow. WHAT DOES A PULSATION DAMPENER DO? Pulsation dampeners absorb the power from the pulse wave created by a diaphragm pump, more like a twitch absorber in a vehicle. Absorbing these pulse waves protects pipe welds and supports the system components from damage due to emphasis or excess movement.


HOW DOES A PULSATION DAMPENER WORK? As the pulsating flow enters the dampener vessel, the air pocket trapped above the fluid absorbs up to 80% - 89% of the pulsation, allowing a laminar or smooth flow downstream the dampener. A pulsation dampener is a device that stores energy & it has a pre-set charge that it can use to absorb shocks to the system on which it is installed. This subtract shocks can aid systems, especially piping systems, in dealing with pulses, vibrations, water hammering & fluctuations in pressure levels. This process can help develop the longevity of the equipment in the system.


WHERE ARE PULSATION DAMPENERS COMMONLY USED? Pulsation dampeners are commonly used anywhere an diaphragm pump discharges flow in an unsteady manner, and where the pulsation may result in damage to the piping system. Diaphragm pumps typically advantages from a pulsation dampener. The different types of pulsation dampener used is typically defined by where they are placed in the system, and what they need to do. For example, "pulsation dampeners" are placed on the discharge of the pump, "inlet stabilisers" are on placed before suction of the pump, & an accumulator or "surge suppressor" is used next to a valve or other device that brake the flow in a system.
