These are also being employed in mud pumps for pulsation dampening and in various other hydraulically operated equipment in oil & rigs.
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.
Research continued into the design of pulsation dampening systems that provided higher compressor field efficiencies.
The facility will also support local JIT delivery with a significant stock of frequently used components including pulsation dampening and stabilizing equipment, pump plungers, centrifugal pump components, pump packing, valves, Teflon(R) seals, ceramic hard-face seals, severe-wear materials, and other custom components for the energy and petrochemical sector.
