The Micron small vessel is designed to absorb sudden overpressure caused by water hammer in pressurized hydraulic
systems. Using the Micron small vessel tends to suppress both the noise and vibrations generated by the above phenomena, thus, increasing the life of the system.
Water hammer (overpressure shock) is caused by the sudden closing of a valve or similar device in a hydraulic system. The sudden closure causes a
sonic pressure wave to travel backward though the pipe system. As the pressure wave hits obstructions in the system, additional pressure waves are
reflected back in the opposite direction. These pressure waves will cause loud noises within the system and can lead to physical damage and short
system life if left unchecked.
To overcome this problem the system must be equipped with a hydraulic shock absorber able to absorb the pressure wave through the use of an air
cushion. The Micron hammer arrestor is the perfect device for this purpose.
