Pulsation Dampener supports AODD pump applications.

May 9, 2016

Constructed of 316L stainless steel with PTFE diaphragm, AODDampener is specifically designed to eliminate pulsations in air operated double diaphragm pump applications. Unit employs automatic air control that utilizes existing compressed air source in AODD pump system for charging. As fluid line pressure increases, air charge in dampener is increased to match it. When line pressure drops, dampener bleeds off charge, keeping dampener optimally charged for maximum dampening effect. Read More
