Backpressure valves and pulsation dampeners combined

New Fusion dampeners (photo) combine the technologies of this company’s backpressure valves and pulsation dampeners to simplify a chemical-feed system installation by blending two previously separate accessories into one product. The combination of these two devices into one accessory will also reduce the number of joints, creating fewer leak-path opportunities and provide for a smoother, nearly pulseless chemical-feed system, says the company. The initial offering of Fusion dampeners is available in NPT connection sizes of 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 in. and with two pulsation-dampeners in 6 and 10 in.3 volumes. Due to the large internal passages in the new fusion dampeners, there are no restrictions on flowrate or pumped fluid cleanliness, according to the company. The new devices have a maximum operating pressure of 150 psi (10 bars) at 70°F (21°C). — Griffco Valve, Inc., Amherst, N.Y.
