The opposite applies as well: a much wider exit means that there will be less back pressure (desirable effect), but also a drastically lowered exit velocity (undesirable), which in extreme cases might be insufficient to completely evacuate the spent charge from inside the cylinder.
When installing pulsation dampeners and back pressure valves in any pumping system, location and proximity are key.

Usually this results in a hard landing due the pilot's inability to fine tune the ever-increasing back pressure. Worse case is a bent firewall.
It shows that both the liquid and vapor phases of the spray collapsed as the fuel temperature increased at both back pressures, and more significant reduction of spray width was found at 40kPa back pressure.
The pressure required by the left ventricle to overcome the significant back pressure is much greater than that required by the right ventricle where the back pressure is considerably less.
With monolithic columns, organic solvents with higher viscosity, such as methanol, isopropyl alcohol and ethanol, can be used without worrying about high back pressures. A wider range of mobile phase choices allows for better tuning of selectivity in method development.
They use the supplier's EZLogic system to accumulate pallets with zero back pressure, reducing the chance of product-damaging collisions.
If the tank is located lower than the chilled water system piping, CV-5 and CV-6 could modulate to control back pressure.
Blood vessels in the gullet had exploded because of back pressure from my liver after drinking too much.
The leaked report stated the incident involved back pressure in one of the furnaces.
Its flapper technology allows high pressures to be achieved (up to 116 psi) at large orifice sizes while preventing the fluid contamination that can result from spikes in back pressure inherent in analytical devices.
