Stop pump start up surge, valve closure shock, and shut down back flow water hammer using shock alleviators from the pipeline shock and surge prevention people, ShockGuard. Manufacturer of large vessels for high pressure with matching bladders, diaphragms, gas bags, and bellows, for over 1/3 of a century.
Shock alleviators and shock accumulators do not alleviate shock, nor do surge alleviators and surge accumulators alleviate surge. SurgeGuard, JumboFlex, and FloatOlator all work in the same way. They provide a soft place, so that the pump does not have to instantly accelerate all the liquid in the pipe system when it starts. Similarly, they provide a place into which flow can continue, for a time, against increasing resistance, when a a valve has been slammed. In both cases, because time has been increased, peak pressure generation is decreased. In short, they all prevent the peak pressure from being generated.
Sales and assistance for water hammer alleviators, hydraulic accumulators, pulsation dampeners, and surge attenuators for applications including but not limited to: shock, surge, water hammer, pressure pulsation, and flow fluctuation:
