BLACOH Pulsation Dampeners Reduce Energy Consumption for Cost Savings

Posted on by R Andrew Springer

BLACOH Pulsation Dampeners are Proven Energy Saving Components

Blacoh Sentry Pulsation DampenersPumps are large consumers of energy in industry, in some cases using up to 50% of total plant energy usage. BLACOH Pulsation Dampeners can reduce pump energy consumption by reducing the workload imparted to the pump through pulsations. In a test BLACOH ran with a peristaltic hose pump, the energy savings range between 6.5% and 14.3%! On top of this, pulsation dampeners improve the life of piping, valves and other fluid system components.
