Make a note of this pump's F number, also known as its Flow Fluctuation Figure. Use the F number with the % residual fluctuation required figure from the smoothness shown for each type of application. These two figures, the F figure and the % figure, applied to the size selection formula give you the smallest practicable damper size.

Find the "F" Valve of Your Pump-"F"is a correction Factor on the square of number of displacers.

Example, Centrifugals are intrinsically good - have a high F, Sandwich diaphragm metering pumps have a low F.

A centrifugal pump has 11 blades, at 725 RPM it Displacers 500 gpm,

500 gals x 231 in3 per Gallon / 11 blades x 725 rpm =14.5in3 displacement@ 133 Hz.

Selecting Pulsation Dampeners for Different Pump Systems.

Flow through pulsation dampers are at least 3 times more efficient than T off line accumulators.

Dampeners that do, flow goes through, but pressure pulsation does not.
