Pulsation dampening and piping system pressure losses can also be more of a concern because of the higher frequency pulsation that is generated by high-speed compressors.
In mud pumps, accumulators are used for pulsation dampening in order to prevent them from shocks, thereby, increasing the equipment life with reduced maintenance costs.
The limits of what was previously achieved have been improved with regard to pulsation dampening, power and maximum particle size," said Dirk Hovemeyer, CTO, Putzmeister Solid Pumps GmbH, located in Aichtal, Germany.
Research continued into the design of pulsation dampening systems that provided higher compressor field efficiencies.
