dampener elements 24 which are generally ring-shaped
and which are each provided with a ?tting 26 by which
pressurized ?uid such as air, nitrogen and the like, is
introduced into the associated dampener element 24.

1 Claim. (Cl. 138-30)
These dampener elements 24 are formed of a resilient
material, such as rubber, ?exible plastics or :any suitable
resilient material which is inert to the ?uids ?owing in
the pulsation dampener 10.
This invention relates to a pulsation or pressure surge

Another object of the present invention is the provision
