Fundamentals of Pulsation Dampening

1-Part Live Webinar

Overview

This webinar will review how reciprocating pumps start and stop flow with every revolution of the shaft, which results in system pressure pulsations that will be above and below the average.  While normal, these pulsations require care in the design of the piping system and its accessories to ensure proper pump suction pressure and reliable pump system operation.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, participants will learn:

  • Which types of pumps create pressure/flow pulsation and why Issues/problems created by pulsation Explanation of magnitude and frequency of pulsation for various pump types
  • Pulsation dampeners general principal of operation of a pulsation dampener
  • Types of Dampeners and their pros/cons
  • Configurations and their pros/cons
  • Charge valve options
  • Primary and secondary criteria for dampener specification
  • Effect of pulsation and vibration on piping systems
  • How analysis is accomplished
  • Typical solutions for vibration problems
