What is a Tube
A pressure gauge siphon tube is a device used to protect pressure gauges against the effect of the pressure of the fluid being measured. The siphon tube consists of a pigtail or U-shaped tube that is installed between the gauge and the fluid being measured as opposed to the tubing net. The siphon tube is filled with a liquid, usually water, which acts as a barrier to protect the gauge from the pressure of the fluid being measured.
The use of the siphon tube is necessary when measuring fluids that are at high temperature or contain vapours or gases that may damage the gauge or affect the accuracy of the measurement as opposed to the tubing net. The siphon tube is also used to protect the gauges from fluctuations in fluid pressure, which can damage the internal mechanism of the gauge.
Features and functions of Siphon Tubes
The design of the manometer siphon tube can vary, but usually consists of a stainless steel or carbon steel tube that can have various wall thicknesses schedule 40, schedule 80, connected to an inlet and outlet pipe. The liquid is fed into the siphon tube and then hermetically sealed. The liquid acts as a barrier to the pressure of the fluid being measured and prevents the pressure from directly affecting the gauge unlike the tubing net.
In summary, a manometer siphon tube is a device that protects the manometer against the pressure of the fluid being measured and is used in applications where fluid pressure may damage the manometer or affect the accuracy of the measurement.

Operation of the
The siphon tube is passive and the effect of hot pressure media such as steam and also to reduce the effect of rapid pressure surges. The siphon allows condensate to form and collect inside the siphon, preventing hot media (hot vapours, not just steam) from coming into direct contact with the pressure instrument.
