Latin for “periodic fluctuation”. In technical systems such as pumps and compressors, as well as in tubes, pulsation is a pressure surge designating the dynamic pressure change of a liquid. Pulsating work pressures, if the wrong type of burst protection is chosen, can lead to premature failure of the bursting disc. This is an ideal application for the STRIKO reverse acting rupture disc as this is the most uncritical disc with respect to pulsating work pressures of medium to high strength.
