LDi Pulsation Analysis - target image Triplex reciprocating plunger pump - analysis of motion, valve action mass oscillation, velocity jump, membrane response

To understand the normal pulsation signature of the triplex test shown here it is necessary to examine the plunger and valve motions that cause the mass transfer velocities, before study of pressure response plot A. & discharge plot B.

From report by Yuri V. Gerasimov, Technical Director Liquid Dynamics Inc. March 1994. Subject German pumps for Exxon. Cause the effect review M. Packer.

 

Strokes of a triplex piston pump displacement or forward stroke, suction or backwards stroke Pressure generation against system resistance inside the plunger chamber Suction check valve stroke, note the opening delay of 28 ms during the decompression of the red cylinder Suction mass flow kg per second caused by pressure difference, supply line to in pump cylinder Suction system pressures excited by the velocity jump from valve delay and mass oscillation Discharge check valve movement, note the overshoot and rebound, indicating valve stop allowing more than 25% of critical diameter travel. Discharge mass flow from the individual cylinders, then combine for theoretical steady state. Discharge pressure at check valve outlet, response to mass decompression explosion and Joukowsky shock. Note: Log scale change - otherwise shock amplitude would take the entire page. Individual dampeners per cylinder, note stiff “FlexFlon” membrane stroke response to high frequency pulsation
