Reducing Line Shock

Line shock, also called water hammer, is caused by the rapid closing of a valve in a system. An accumulator placed close to the valve will dampen the resulting pressure shock wave.

Please enter the following information so that we may calculate the proper accumulator size for your application:

Fluid Specific Weight, in pounds per cubic foot
Flow Rate, in gallons per minute  
Pipe Length, in feet  
Pipe ID, in inches  
Line Pressure, in PSI  
Accumulator Precharge, in PSI
Maximum Allowable Line Shock, in PSI
