What is a pressure
The pressure gauge snubber is a safety element used to prevent water hammer on the pressure gauge, either due to overpressure or sudden pressure fluctuations.
The meter snubber can be adjusted and fine-tuned to adjust the water hammer. The typical adjustable snubber is a piston snubber with an added needle valve. The needle valve further restricts the flow before entering the gate. The piston snubber can also be a check ball valve, its working principle is passive until it is activated by a sudden change in pressure.
Some adjustable snubbers also come with a sealing cover, allowing the meter to be disassembled for repair or maintenance.
As a manufacturer of needle valves for more than 60 years, Zaes guarantees a quality product for your installations.
Gauges snubbers operation
The pressure gauge snubber matches the speed at which the fluid or gas reaches the measurement point.
Using a buffer in a gauge application will not change the process pressure, it will reduce pipe pulsation, thus improving the accuracy of gauge readings and extending the life of specific gauges.
