Surge Dampeners New Surge Dampeners Now Available in Metal
Wilden has announced the availability of its new Equalizer Surge Dampeners – Integrated SD Series (ISD) bolted metal option, which helps minimize vibration and control pipe hammer to protect the system piping and downstream instrumentation.
Wilden ISD Series dampeners are installed at the pump’s discharge and have been specifically engineered to reduce fluid pressure and flow fluctuations for a smoother discharge flow. This function not only protects system equipment, but also helps extend the life, decrease the noise and increase the efficiency of Wilden air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps, states the company.
The new stainless steel metal dampeners are available in 25 mm (1″), 38 mm (1-1/2″) and 51 mm (2″) sizes. According to the firm, the bolted-construction design and PTFE, Buna backed, integral piston diaphragms offer maximum process fluid containment. This makes them an ideal solution for a wide range of applications, including, but not limited to, oil and gas, paint and coatings, and chemicals.
