Snubber


Gauge Snubber fittings protects pressure  gauges and instruments from system pressure surges and shock.   Pressure damping (snubbing) is accomplished through the use of a porous sintered SS 316 element. When snubber is installed up stream from a pressure instruments, the response rate of the instrument is reduced and generally varies with the initial pressure drop across the porous metal element, and allows the instrument to smoothly come to line pressure. Heat code traceability
