Hydraulic Shock Arrestors

Hydraulic Shock Arrestors

The Carpenter & Paterson Ltd range of hydraulic shock arrestor has been developed to protect pipelines and related plant equipment from the effect of shock loads caused by circumstances such as seismic activity, water hammer, etc. When subjected to sudden movements which exceed specific velocity levels, the shock arrestor ‘locks’ momentarily and forms a rigid connection.

Hydraulic shock arrestors are available in loads up to 750,000 N (75,000 kg) and travels up to 450 mm.
 
All of our snubbers are supplied with precision rod-end bearings and are all individually tested to validate their performance on our dynamic test facility.
