Pulsation is a common issue in many pumps. It’s the reason pulsation dampeners exist for a variety of different pump styles. Pulsation happens when the pressure inside one part of the pump (usually the inlet side) is greater than in the other side (usually the outlet side). This leads to a pulsing flow that creates surges and can put considerable stress on the equipment.
The Concerns of Pump Pulsation
Some pumps, like air-operated double-diaphragm pumps, are designed to use pulsation, but even then it can often get out of control. If pulsation is a problem at your operation, you may not have the right pump installed, or it may be improperly configured. When high pulsation occurs, it can affect the inner workings of the pump and the mounts because the pulsing motion rocks the equipment back and forth on its base. Ultimately, this can lead to significant damage that is costly to repair and leads to excess downtime.
Progressive Cavity Pumps and Pulsation
Pulsation can also be a problem in progressive cavity pumps, though they are engineered to minimize pulsation. If pulsation is happening, it’s important to troubleshoot and resolve the issue before it gets worse. SEEPEX is one of the world’s leading progressive cavity pumps, and they have a long history of addressing pulsation concerns. That’s why their pumps are engineered for low pulsation and exceptional durability.
