Wilden Releases New Equalizer Surge Dampeners – Integrated SD Series (ISD) Available in Metal

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Wilden, part of PSG, a Dover (NYSE: DOV) company, and a worldwide leader in specialty pumps, today announced the release of its new Equalizer® Surge Dampeners – Integrated SD Series (ISD) bolted metal option. Installed at the pump’s discharge, Wilden ISD Series dampeners have been specifically engineered to reduce fluid pressure and flow fluctuations for a smoother discharge flow. This function protects system equipment and helps extend the life of Wilden air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps, including by decreasing noise and increasing efficiency.

“Wilden ISD Series dampeners offer a tremendous benefit to end-users because they have been specially designed to minimize vibration and control pipe hammer. This is a critical consideration when trying to protect system piping and downstream instrumentation,” said Erik Solfelt, Diaphragm Pump Product Director, Wilden. “A welcomed addition to our innovative line of pump accessories, these new metal surge dampeners provide users with a simple, reliable and efficient solution for otherwise challenging applications.”

The new ISD Series stainless steel metal dampeners are available in 25 mm (1″), 38 mm (1-1/2″) and 51 mm (2″) sizes. The bolted-construction design and PTFE, Buna backed, integral piston diaphragms offer maximum process fluid containment. This makes them an ideal solution for a wide range of applications, including, but not limited to, oil and gas, paint and coatings, and chemical.
