Properly Sizing a Pulsation Stabilizer
You will need the following information:
- Pump stroke length
- Pump connection sizes and types (threaded or flanged)
- Suction and discharge pressures
- Fluid type and temperature

HOW IT WORKS – PULSATION STABILIZERS
Pulsation or cavitation is caused by the variation of fluid movement within a contained system. Since fluid is non-compressible, the energy produced by this pulsation or cavitation must be compensated for. With the introduction of pulsation equipment into a system this energy now has a place to expend itself. Without the pulsation equipment involved in your pumping system, the pulsation or cavitation that is present can lead to the following:
- Increased pump maintenance costs due to pre-mature plunger and valve failure.
- Loss of optimum pump performance.
- Increased down time for repairs of weakened piping systems.
