What is a siphon tube

The pressure gauge siphon is a simple device used to protect sensors, pressure gauges and pressure gauges from high temperature media, steam and other fluids.

The siphon can also be used to reduce the potentially damaging effects of rapid pressure changes. These low cost devices allow system builders to use pressure sensors with a much smaller temperature range in high temperature applications.

Features and functions of siphon tubes

The siphon is a tube that can have various thicknesses, such as wall thickness 40, wall thickness 80, etc ... and bend the package so that it does not chamfer and cool, so that the tube does not lose its mechanical properties, and can be screwed Provide your function in the smallest space possible.

When used with a suitable filling fluid, it can also be used as an antifreeze.

What types of pressure
gauge snubber exist

The straight or pigtail siphon tube

Carbon steel siphon tube:The carbon steel siphon is suitable for neutral and non-corrosive media. They are resistant to water, (compressed) air, oil and many other media. However, brass should not be used with salt water or sea water, distilled water, acids and chlorides.

The "U" shaped siphon tube

Siphon tube in stainless steel:In addition to hydrochloric acid, chloride, bromine, and household bleach, the advantage of the stainless steel siphon is that it can resist almost any chemical corrosion in the environment. It has high abrasion resistance, temperature resistance and pressure resistance.

At Zaes, as a manufacturer of siphon tubes, a manufacturer of pressure gauge dampers and a manufacturer of pressure gauge valves for more than 60 years, we guarantee a quality product for your installations.

Operation of the siphon tubes

The siphon tube is passive and el 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 within the siphon, preventing hot media (hot vapors, not just steam) from coming into direct contact with the pressure instrument.
