Confusion in Choosing Snubber/Syphon and Diaphragm Seal

10/05/2009 1:31 AM

Hello,
i have confusion in filling my datasheets regarding usage of diaphragm seal,syphon,snubber for a pressure gauge

As fas as i know

Diaphragm Seal keep process fluid from freezing, gelling .They are filled with non compressible liquids which transmit the process pressure to the protected pressure element.

Snubber are used to suppress the effect of pressure pulses and pressure peaks in harsh applications such as on reciprocating pumps and compressors

Syphon filled with water should be installed between the gauge and the process line.It acts as a cooling coil and protects the gauge from high temperature vapors.

And now my confusion is regarding usage of diaphragm seal along with syphon?
or
Diaphragm seal along with snubber?

When a diaphragm seal is used for a pressure gauge can i use syphon or snubber along with diaphragm seal?

i got this doubt because i have a application in which diaphragm seal is used in discharge of pumps(shown in P& ID) and i have to use snubber for reducing pulsation.

and for steam application too diaphragm seal is shown in P & ID so syphon can be used along with diaphragm seal?

and one more doubt for me is position of syphon!
Can it be placed above instrument manifold or below?

To add my project is a Sulphuric acid plant

please respond me soon and help me as i have to deliver my datasheets As soon as possible.


Thanks in Advance,
With Regards,
Gopi.

Diaphragm seal protect pressure element from agressive fluid. e.g. wastewater or acid.

Snubber only protect pressure element from pulses in process fluid.

Syphon only protect pressure element from high temperature.

And now my confusion is regarding usage of diaphragm seal along with syphon?

Diaphragm seal along with syphon protect the aggresive high temperature fluid.
or
Diaphragm seal along with snubber?

Diaphragm seal and snubber protect aggresive fluid with pulses.

When a diaphragm seal is used for a pressure gauge can i use syphon or snubber along with diaphragm seal?

The snubber or syphon is connected before the diphragm.

i got this doubt because i have a application in which diaphragm seal is used in discharge of pumps(shown in P& ID) and i have to use snubber for reducing pulsation.

and for steam application too diaphragm seal is shown in P & ID so syphon can be used along with diaphragm seal?

and one more doubt for me is position of syphon!

Remember the pressure head compensation

To add my project is a Sulphuric acid plant

It is just an agressive fluid.

Hello ,

Thanks for your reply, i got clariffication for my doubts from your answer.

one more doubt for me is position of syphon!
Can it be placed above instrument manifold or below?

Can you please tell me about pressure head compensation?

this i need beacuse in my hook ups it placed below instrument manifold which i want to point to my manager this as a mistake but i am not confident..when i did a little research on other project hook ups i found mostly it is placed above instrument manifold. and my designers saying it can be placed even below instrument manifold as per there experience.i am really confused regarding this.Please respond me as soon as possible.With regards,Gopi
