A Pulsation Dampener is an accumulator with a set pre-charge that absorbs system shocks while minimizing pulsations, pipe vibration, water hammering and pressure fluctuations. By minimizing pulsation in the system components like regulators, solenoids, sensors, etc., pumps will see decreased wear and have longer life. Pulsation dampeners are tied directly onto the discharge manifold or plumbed immediately downstream of the pump.
Cat Pumps offers a wide assortment of pulsation dampeners to meet the demands of any application. From completely sealed to completely re-buildable. The bladders are pre-charged with nitrogen to eliminate moisture and extend the life of the pulsation dampener.
