|English term or phrase: pulsating open|
|co2 cleaning plant|
Valves actuators are pulsating open when not running a cycle
Air pressure is too high
Reduce air supply pressure to between 6 and 9 bar."
...does it mean opening by pulses??
|English translation:How I understand it|
This would tell me that the actuators are open, but that they are vibrating, perhaps partially closing while in this position. Your choice would also be applicable: Rather than opening in one smooth motion, the acuators are opening partially, then stopping, then opening some more, etc., until open.

opening partially, in an erratic manner, when they are supposed to be shut
I certainly wouldn't disagree with JCC's answer, but my own interpretation would be rather more in line with your own, Elena --- even when a cycle is not running (i.e. presumably the valves are meant to be shut), they are in fact opening spuriously in a 'pulsed' manner, that is to say, instead of getting a clear, unequivocal 'open' or 'close' command, they are receiving some kind of invalid electrical signal that is causing them to attempt to open and close, probably too fast for their normal operation.
