Periodic damage feats and procs deal damage in each round of a battle once they have been activated.
These procs are capable of activating only once during a battle for each source in the setup.
If more than one item in a setup has the same periodic damage proc associated with it and that proc manifests, the damage inflicted by the items stack (are added together).
