<x-flowed>Think of a river that flow with a constant volume, and then widens into a lake. The damper behaves like the lake. Fluctuations on the inlet side get dampened by the lake taking up the variations and leaving the outlet to run at a consitant rate.
This prevents surges on the downstream side.
