A pressure gauge snubber is a device used to suppress (“snub”) excess force or rapid movement in mechanical systems. Pressure snubbers are designed to dampen the effect of pressure pulses and spikes to assure longer service life and readability of pressure gauges in harsh applications.
Pressure gauge, instrument for measuring the condition of a fluid (liquid or gas) that is specified by the force that the fluid would exert, when at rest, on a unit area, such as pounds per square inch or newtons per square centimetre.
The Syphons is a specifically designed to protect a pressure sensor from high temperature media, for an instance steam. Other than, it has also proven its efficacy by reducing the damaging possibilities of the pressure gauge in the rapid pressure changes. The use of the symphony with the pressure gauge permits the system builders to use pressure sensor with a considerably lower temperature range in high temperature applications too.
Gauge cocks are used to shut off the flow of media to a pressure instrument. This is useful for when you need to inspect a pressure instrument or replace one. They are available in various connection sizes and pressure ratings.
During the application, the syphon should be filled with water or analogous separating medium and the concentration of the pressure medium accumulated inside the coiled portion of the syphon helps abate straight contact with the external media and hence protect the pressure sensor.
