Autoclave Engineers Pressure Snubbers provide protection
to gauges and instrumentation from pressure surges, pulsation
and shock. The unique snubber design provides superior
instrument protection while not compromising instrument
accuracy or reaction time. This is accomplished by the use of
existing technology from our excess flow check valve with
additional design features.
When sudden flow is seen, the poppet will rise, blocking the
pressure surge and a small bleed hole in the poppet will allow
pressure to slowly equalize. When the pressure is equalized,
the poppet will then drop back down allowing normal flow to
the gauge. A filter is used to prevent the hole in the plug from
becoming plugged. The snubber must be mounted in the
vertical position as indicated on the unit.
Snubbers are offered in 316SS as standard, with either male,
female or male/female connections in 1/4" and 3/8" sizes.
