AS-Schneider Gauge Syphons are used to protect the pressure gauge from the effect of hot pressure media such as steam and also to reduce the effect of rapid pressure surges. The syphon allows condensate to form and be collected inside the syphon, preventing the hot media (hot vapors, not just steam) from coming in direct contact with the pressure instrument. Also used as freeze protector when used with proper fill fluids.
The Compact Gauge Syphon can be used instead of the Coil Syphon for vertical installations. The Compact Gauge Syphon is available as Standard types and also as Integral Snubber types.
The max. allowable (Working) Pressure (PS), as standard, is 420 bar (6,092 psi).
