The pulsation damper is a stainless steel sphere with a fitting on one side that connects to a 'T' fitting and is placed in-line with the fuel flow either just before or after the fuel flow transducer. The pulsation damper acts like a common air shock absorber isolator in a typical sink facet. A fuel pulsation damper is a device used to regulate the oscillation of fuel caused by the opening and closing of injectors and smooth this out. The fuel pulsation damper consists of a hydraulic accumulator with metal bellows to separate the compressible gas from the fuel oil. A fuel pulsation sensor which is used in many engines is used to dampen out the pressure variations in the fuel rail. These pulsation dampers are widely used to reduce the high pressure pulses which can lead to fatigue of components in the system.
The problem of pressure pulses is a well-known phenomenon in diesel engines. To overcome this, fuel pulsation dampers are required in each inlet and outlet. The fuel pulsation damper uses diaphragm to absorb pulses or waves in the fuel. Automobile manufacturers are constantly working towards manufacturing vehicles with high level of fuel efficiency and reliability in their vehicle line up; automotive fuel pulsation dampers plays an important role within this context to achieve such targets.
