pulsation dampening

pulsation dampening

[pəl′sā·shən ‚dam·pən·iŋ]
(engineering)
Device installed in a fluid piping system (gas or liquid) to eliminate or even out the fluid-flow pulsations caused by reciprocating compressors, pumps, and such.

The differential pressure cell features over-range protection and pulsation dampening to compensate for variations in line pressure, as well as a temperature compensator to protect the unit from drift caused by ambient temperature changes.
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.
