I was wondering if anyone that has pulsation dampener on their engine
driven RO would share their make and model.
1/2" NPT diaphragm
ones are are gigantic and pricey. I tried the crappy ashcroft 1106 but two of them were leaking.
I am at a point where if I increase the flow vibrations are substantial.
I have Cat 290 on a 7" clutch
driven by 5" crankshaft pulley (Westerbeake 40)
I have two SW30-2540 in parallel.
brine flow is anywhere from 1.75(bad) to 2.25(decent) gpm depending on my engine RPM
. Interestingly I have a 3/4" scoop strainer for watermaker
intake and If i make water
while under way, i can get away with more brine flow before vibrations become noticeably bad.
I feel like high pressure hoses will be prone to damage at these types of vibrations and pulsation dampener might help.
